Karen Almond, Dallas Opera

The Dallas Opera opened its new season with a sparkling Marriage of Figaro, Mozart’s comic masterpiece, last weekend. The production is musically tight, dramatically taut and scenically opulent. It is also very funny. Read more

Theater review: ‘Miracle on South Division Street’

Theatre Arlington

Eric Younkin Photography

Despite its title, this show doesn’t have anything to do with the Division Street in Arlington or much to do with miracles (the Cowboys have already used up that city’s quota of those this season). Read more

Theater review: ‘Bedroom Farce’

GHJ38S3NH.3

Buddy Myers
