It should probably be absolutely no surprise that I adore the theater arts. I love the lights, the stage, the performances and the opportunity to get dolled up in event worthy fashion. I love the escapism and the fact that Dallas hosts a world class arts community right here. One of my favorite places to experience the arts is the Winspear Opera House, housed within the AT&T Performing Arts Center. It’s glamorous, unstuffy and fun. It’s very Dallas, meaning you will see guests dolled up for cocktail hour and others in boots, jeans and a button down. It’s fantastic.
It is also perfect for a first arts outing or building a lifelong treat yourself experience destination. It is one of the ways that I nurture myself and another opportunity to share something different with my children.
A great opportunity to create a memory for yourself is to enjoy one of the latest offerings for the Dallas Arts District with INTO THE WOODS opening on Tuesday, May 16 at 7:30pm at the AT&T Performing Arts Center in Dallas and continuing until May 28, 2017.
About the play:
“Venture back INTO THE WOODS as the Dodgers (Jersey Boys, Matilda) team up with Networks (Phantom, War Horse, South Pacific) to present the acclaimed Fiasco Theater production that became New York’s surprise hit of this season. Unanimously acclaimed, extended twice at the Roundabout’s Laura Pels Theater, the Tony Award-winning musical classic by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine has been mounted with boundless imagination. This witty and wildly theatrical re-invention is INTO THE WOODS like you’ve never seen it before!
Including dazzling songs like “Children Will Listen” and “No One Is Alone,” this thrillingly clever new version made Ben Brantley of The New York Times fall “head over heels.” Mind the wolf, heed the witch and honor the giant in the sky at this extraordinary musical about the power of wishes and what really happens after they come true.”
Good to Know:
This play runs about 160 minutes with one 15 minute intermission. No one under the age of 4 will be permitted into the Opera House, and there is plenty of paid parking on site.
