Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Dallas City Performance Hall


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 […]

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 […]

Cumming Soon

There are few people on this planet that we’d listen to croon with syrupy sentimentality. Cher, because we’ll listen to her sing anything. Ricky Martin because, well, we’d watch him sing anything. But the one you may not expect is Alan Cumming, one of the most extremely talented and quirky individuals working in entertainment today. We’ve been infatuated with him […]

Yes We Khan!

There’s a movement in the works. Actually, several. Beautiful, fluid, mesmerizing dance movements on the stage at Dallas City Performance Hall. That’s what you’ll witness when celebrated U.K. choreographer Akram Khan brings his works to Dallas for two nights on November 6 and 7. The British choreographer comes from Bangladeshi parents and there’s a definite merging of cultural influences in […]

Movers. And Shakers.

If you asked us when we started writing about the Dallas scene for this publication back in 2007 what would most surprise us eight years in the future, we would never, ever have guessed: We’re addicted to dancer performances. Yep, thanks to TITAS Presents… and the AT&T Performing Arts Center, we’ve become dance junkies. Our latest fix comes in the […]

Nerdle Creek

Some of us came of age in the 1980s. Others just wish they had. Celebrate the raddest decade with Turtle Creek Chorale this weekend as they present Turtle-ly ‘80s, a celebration of the music that inspired a generation of proud nerds and boundary-pushing fashionistas. We saw a sneak peak of the performances during Gaybingo last month and it’s gonna be […]

Puttin’ On The Biarritz

There once was a time that the closest we’d ever been to ballet was Carrie Bradshaw’s tutu in the opening credits of Sex and the City. But our tastes in performing arts has improved, much like our taste in wine. Along with white zinfandel, we’ve ditched trashy reality shows in favor of a nice Malbec and an evening at the […]

Brooks Brothers…And Sisters

A picture may be worth 100 words times ten, but sometimes a photo can hardly do justice to the action it’s capturing for posterity. Sure, the pic of the guy without pants gets our attention, but trust us when we tell you that seeing Brian Brooks Moving Company is an incredible experience for the senses. Mesmerizing audiences for two nights […]

Urie Town

There aren’t many homes in Dallas with basements. That’s why we keep our pinball machine, bean bags and tiki bar in the attic. But geez how our guests hate climbing that ladder into the ceiling for happy hour. In Malibu, apparently basements are a bit more common because that’s the setting for Buyer & Cellar, the much celebrated, award-winning one-man […]

How Sween It Is

Previously, our scariest barber experience was the time our hair stylist was on vacation and we thought Supercuts was a suitable alternative. Frightening as it was, it was nothing compared to what happens in Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. But it’s a good kind of scary. One with great music. And for a limited engagement, […]
