Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

PAC Attack

There’s so much going on at the AT&T Performing Arts Center every month that we keep calling in sick to work due to Culture Overload Syndrome. Thankfully, there’s a cure for COS. And that’s an overview of performances and events that speak specifically to our demanding cultural sensibilities. This, dear friends, is that list.

The Women's Chorus of Dallas
Saturday, March 13, 7:30 p.m.
Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre

We saw a movie once about the ’60s. It looked like a really fun, innocent time, and though we’re glad we live in color now, it would be fun to visit the era. Too bad our DeLorean just got recalled for a sticking time-travel pedal. Thankfully, the Women’s Chorus of Dallas is ready to give us the next-best thing: an evening of 1960s soda-shop pop. Singing icon Lesley Gore (It’s My Party, Judy’s Turn to Cry, and You Don’t Own Me) will join the group for a night of girl-group songs and musical nostalgia. Tickets to a private after-party with Gore can be purchased, as well.

Tickets: $20 – $45

Brinker International Forum presents David Frost & Frank Langella
Tuesday, March 16, 8:00 p.m.
Winspear Opera House

Frost/Nixon fans are in for a real treat as Sir David Frost and Frank Langella join forces for a candid conversation. Frost became famous in 1977 when he got an exclusive interview with Richard Nixon that rocked the political world. Langella, who played Nixon in the Broadway and film adaptations will weigh in on the role and his own pop-culture part of this historical event.

Broadway Musicals? Now you’re talking! Spring Awakening swept the 2007 Tony Awards with 8 wins, including Best Musical.
