Arts events: 'Deathtrap,' Rachmaninoff and Di Meola

Posted 7:01pm on Wednesday, Feb. 03, 2010


Ira Levin's play is best known for being Broadway's longest-running thriller. And that longevity is perfectly understandable, given its winningly gripping plotline of a murder-mystery writer and his nefarious scheme to salvage his sinking career.

Friday-Sunday (end-of-run performances: 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 3 p.m. Sunday) at Runway Theatre, 215 N. Dooley St., Grapevine. $12-$15. 817-488-4842; www.runwaytheatre.com.

Dallas Symphony Orchestra presents Romance and Rachmaninoff

This run of concerts includes one on Valentine's Day, as it's hard to exceed the lush romanticism of the main work on the bill: Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2.

Thursday-Feb. 14 (8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday; 2:30 p.m. Sunday) at Meyerson Symphony Center, 2301 Flora St., Dallas. $17-$110. 214-692-0203; www.dallassymphony.com.

Al Di Meola

Contemporary, often electrified, jazz guitar is a somewhat narrowly defined province that has been mostly ruled by Pat Metheny and John McLaughlin. But Al Di Meola, with his quicksilver, yet melodic, style, may have the tightest grip on the genre.

8 p.m. Thursday at Granada Theater, 3524 Greenville Ave., Dallas. $25-$45. 214-824-9933; www.granadatheater.com.
