Christmas Just Got Really Sketchy

On the 12th year of hiatus, my true love gave to me—the return of Queertown! Dallas’ first LGBT comedy troupe hits the stage again after more than a decade in the witness protection program. Or perfecting their synchronized swimming choreography for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Can’t be sure. We’ve been getting…

Dallas
Deck The Halls With The Best Garland Ever

Jesus Christ: King of the Jews. Janelle Lutz: Queen of the Judys. One of our all-time favorite Uptown Players actors returns to the role she was born to play in A Very Judy Christmas, a variety show-style extravaganza reminiscent of the best (and cheesiest) holiday specials of the 1950s and 60s. Written…

This Means Warp

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…

Uptown Players Goes Small

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…

Friends, Romans, Gender-Nonconforming Countrypeople…

Having coasted through high school and college with Cliff’s Notes to save us from actually reading a single of his plays, it’s safe to say we’re not fans of traditional Shakespeare. Not in the slightest. Yet every once in a while, our interest is piqued in a production that sounds daring…

Dallas
No More F*#king ABBA! (OK, Maybe A Little)

The best drag queen road-trip movie ever (sorry, To Wong Foo) makes for one of the best stage musicals ever, too. Go figure. We’ve seen the Broadway version of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and loved it (especially the part where they pulled us onstage to dance in a musical number). But…

Dallas
Guess Who’s Coming Out At Dinner

The gay experience in Dallas differs dramatically from the gay experience in other big cities. Better than some, not as good as others. But we love it regardless. What we love even more is that Dallas gayborhood life takes center stage in a new play debuting on September 9 (with…

Dallas
That Sinking Feeling

Party like it’s 1912 this weekend as Titanic sails into City Performance Hall for three performances. Joining forces once again with the Turtle Creek Chorale (TCC), Uptown Players once again presents a unique concert-style experience that brings together more than 150 actors and singers, plus a 15-piece orchestra for a production that’s…

Dallas
Flying High

The Ringling Bros. will be history soon, but long live Cirque du Soleil! Few things on this planet rival the energy and wide-eyed awe that come with a seat under the big top when this spectacular group of athletes and artists come to town. From death-defying acts that rival Gaga’s…
