TITAS’ Command Performance Gala returns
One of the great things about TITAS’ annual Command Performance Gala is that even if you missed some of the shows in recent seasons, you get a chance to experience bits of many of them. This year’s lineup includes performance from Pilobolus, MOMIX, and artists from Alonzo King/LINES Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, the New York City Ballet and more. It’s always an amazing night of dance.

‘Aladdin’ tour brings North Texans back to Music Hall
Aladdin may be set in the Middle East centuries ago, but two principle stars of the national tour — Major Attaway (Genie) and Aladdin himself, Clinton Greenspan — are actors with strong ties to North Texas, so you can bet the audience will be filled not only with fans of the Disney musical, but well-wishers, too. And while the live-action film is currently in theaters, there’s something special about seeing live-action… live.
