Quantcast

Dammit, Janet. It’s impossible to make it through October without someone staging a version of The Rocky Horror Show or putting on a shadowcast of the movie. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. Somehow Halloween and Frank N. Furter are synonymous in our world. Of course, you’ve probably figured out where this setup is headed and you’d be right: North Texas Performing Arts Repertory Theatre in Plano presents a full-on stage production of the cult favorite with a full band. For two weekends starting tomorrow night. So put on your Brad-worthy tighty whities or fishnet stockings and join in on the feverish…

After all this rain lately, we’ll happily settle for a forecast that calls for a little insanity. And that’s just what’s in store with Clear to Partly Crazy from co-creator of the Greater Tuna series, Jaston Williams. With only three performances this coming weekend, the one-man show cover some personal territory for the beloved actor, as well as typically Texas topics, including tornadoes, cheerleading and wacky family members. Predictions call for a 100-percent chance of uncontrollable laughter. Possibly with intermittent moments of peeing. Clear to Partly Crazy Starring Jaston Williams October 19 and 20 Tickets: $34 to $44 Remove term: Charles W. Eisemann Center for…

The good thing about a zombie party is that even if you forget to dress up, all you have to do is contort your body a bit, stare blankly into the distance, and moan like you’re in utter agony. Sort of like sex with Donald Trump. This Friday, the annual Zombie Pub Crawl invades the Caven bars of Cedar Springs: TMC, Station 4, Rose Room, JR’s Bar & Grill, and Sue Ellen’s. Come in your best undead costume and party the night away by hopping from bar to bar (or dragging one leg behind you slowly if hopping isn’t true to…

A six-pack hiding beneath a shirt. A little random hair here and there. And so many unique aromas. Funny how traits we love in men rarely translate to hotel rooms. As frequent visitors to New Orleans, we’ve experienced more than our fair share of cringe-worthy hotel rooms. Even at decent brands. (We personally blame the phenomenon of eight people cramming into double rooms for bachelorette party weekends, but we have zero proof to support that claim.) Yet Windsor Court Hotel remains a singular hotel property that always manages to exceed our expectations. The first time we stayed, our rooms were complimentary in…

We’ve gotten accustomed to spectacle. Bigger! Louder! Chorus line-ier! That’s because Uptown Players continues to outdo itself with one Broadway-worthy production after another. Yet in celebration of LGBT History Month, they’re shifting gears to focus on a pair of smaller-scale shows and we’re totally into it. Takes us back to the days when the theater troupe performed at the tiny KD Studio Theatre. Starting tonight and tomorrow, two new plays debut at the intimate Bryant Hall Stage on the Kalita Humphreys Theater Campus for four performances each. First up, check out The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey by James Lecesne. The one-man show stars Terry Martin playing more than a dozen…

We interrupt today’s regularly scheduled Brunch of the Week to bring you last-minute Real Housewives of RuPaul’s Drag Race news. (And also, Happy National Coming Out Day!) If you haven’t heard, the originally announced Morgan McMichaels has been replaced at tomorrow’s A Night Out for Trevor: Dallas with the legendary Ongina. She’ll be joined by RHOD’s LeeAnne Locken and hyper queen Sonique for some nonstop divaliciousness. Party tickets start at only $30 and include entertainment, passed hors d’oeuvres and three drink tickets. Upgrade to VIP for $20 more and get an additional three drink tickets. All proceeds benefit The Trevor Project, the organization dedicated to saving young LGBTQ lives…

We love sharing monumental news. And we love sharing monumental monument news even more. Tonight, history will be made at the corner of Throckmorton Street and Cedar Springs Road. (And no, we’re not talking about our first-ever gay kiss.) After working tirelessly for more than two years, Robert Emery petitioned on behalf of The Dallas Way to get the Texas Historical Commission to erect a historical subject marker at “The Crossroads.” With help from fellow history crusaders Sam Childers and Mark Doty, the stars aligned to bring us to this moment. But this is not your typical Texas history plaque. It’s…

Forget farm-to-table. We’re all about farmer-to-bed. Of course, we could also make farmer-to-table work if it came down to it. Yes, we can’t even get through the introduction to a food-event story without taking a pervy turn. But in our defense, we had to go through several stock photos of sexy farmers to find the right one and the process got us a little worked up. Without further ado, we will now kindly shift the focus of this post to one of our favorite party weekends of the year: Chefs for Farmers Celebration of Wine & Food. The sixth annual event…

To be an all-time literary great, one’s life must have a certain amount of tragedy and anguish it would seem. Think of any iconic writer and we think you’d be hard pressed to find any with truly happy lives. If that’s the general rule of thumb, then it goes quadruple for Oscar Wilde. His final years are the focus of The Happy Prince, a film written and directed by the movie’s star, Rupert Everett. We’re sponsoring a free screening and hope you can join us on Monday, October 15 at the Angelika Film Center on East Mockingbird Lane. Because there’s nothing…

Want to be anonymous for a night? Then head to the 10th annual Red Party next Saturday night. Featuring a performance by the world famous Cazwell, put on your best mask and park your ice cream truck at the valet for MasqueRED. Tickets start at $45 for general admission and go up to $125 for VIP. Every guest will have access to complimentary Stoli Vodka cocktails, a silent auction and a full evening of entertainment. VIP guests get added perks, including early entry an hour before everyone else, as well as a private bar featuring Stoli Elite cocktails. As always, all proceeds…
