Dave Millsap with Joey Corpening

This concert featuring Dave Millsap and Joey Corpening represents a homecoming for the two Fort Worth area-reared musicians. Millsap has a recent CD, Dirty Old City, to promote, and it's brimming with 11 original tunes, three of which are of particular interest, as Millsap penned them with Rob Roy Parnell. One of the musicians, playing acoustic guitar, on Millsap's latest release is Corpening -- who will also open Millsap's Fort Worth show. They'll play Fort Worth's McDavid Studio at 8 p.m. March 12. $20. 817-212-4280; www.basshall.com.

'Fiddler on the Roof'

Combine a legendary milkman with a family-friendly musical and it can only be Fiddler on the Roof. Harvey Fierstein takes on the familiar role of Tevye, who is at the center of this critically praised Broadway production. The compulsively watchable and energetic Fierstein (a Tony Award-winning actor) has said that Tevye is one of his favorite roles. Fiddler on the Roof, presented by Performing Arts Fort Worth and Casa Mañana, runs March 9-14 at Bass Hall. $30-$75. 817-212-4280; www.basshall.com.
