Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Arts & Entertainment


Certain Broadway shows don’t seem ideal for teens to perform. Hair. Oh, Calcutta! The Book of Mormon. Avenue Q. The list isn’t long, but we always thought RENT would be right up there toward the top. But we’d be wrong. That’s because there’s actually a school edition of RENT that tones down some of the adult content a bit, but […]

Sexy & 17

Every year for the past 17 years, there have been several things we can count on like clockwork. The number of times we get up to pee each night increases by .176%. Our ability to tolerate children in public decreases by .667%. And, to add one non-complainy-old-man entry to the list, Theatre Three presents I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now […]

Mormie Dearest

In a season of miracles, it’s still possible to score tickets to the hottest show in town. The Book of Mormon returns tonight to the AT&T Performing Arts Center Winspear Opera House for an end-of-year run that’ll quickly (and thankfully) get you humming tunes other than Jingle Bells. Or anything about a hippo. Not to mention any of Celine Dion’s […]

So Many Hos

It’s the most wonderful time for a queer. Because it’s that special season when our epically talented Turtle Creek Chorale presents its holiday show. This year, A Not So Silent Night runs December 8 through 11 and it’s almost more yuletide cheer than we can handle. But that could actually never happen. Joined by guest vocalist Jennifer Piacenti and the […]

God Bless Him, Every One

You can’t swing a dead Tiny Tim around this town without hitting a production of A Christmas Carol. But there’s at least one version that has our goose tingling. In A Christmas Carol: The Radio Show, one of our all-time favorite actors (and Uptown Players regular), B.J. Cleveland takes on Dickens in a wildly fun way. Starring as a radio […]

Cheers, Pats!

“Crazy.” “I Fall to Pieces.” “So Wrong.” Who knew the music of Patsy Cline would so accurately describe the past 48 hours. But if there’s one thing we can always count on the legendary singer to do, it’s transport us to a kinder, gentler place. And that’s pretty much what many of us can use right now. Julie Johnson once […]

Second To Nun

Praying for a religious experience this Halloween season? Perhaps something a little more Catholic in nature than our own Sister Helen Holy? Then look no further than Richardson. The wildly hilarious (and refreshingly G-rated) show, Back to School Catechism: The Holy Ghost and Other Terrifying Tales manages to bring people together in laughter, regardless of religion or cultural background. Led […]

Angels Among Us

A lot has happened in the 23 years since Angels In America debuted. And that’s the exact reason to see the Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play when Uptown Players brings the story back to the Dallas stage with the first of the two-part epic, Angels In America Part One: Millennium Approaches. Tony Kushner’s drama captures a time in LGBT […]

Ready To Oogie Boogie?

Something’s up with Jack. He’s gone from stop-motion animated to live-action human skeleton and we’re jonesing to see the transformation. It all takes place on stage starting tonight as A Nightmare Before Christmas opens at The Art Centre Theatre in Plano. As the worlds of Halloween and Christmas collide in true three-dimensional ways, it’ll be interesting to see how the […]

The Bridge To Burgers

We remember when DIFFA/Dallas’ Burgers & Burgundy event was two Big Macs and a box of strawberry-infused chianti. Or maybe that was our house last night. The point is, Burgers & Burgundy has grown into a major event in its eight years to date. Celebrity chef John Tesar returns to host the beefy bonanza and things are bigger than ever […]
