I have one goal tonight, and that’s finally, after years of waiting, hoping, and despairing, having myself a spooky Mormon hell dream. The Book of Mormon is here at the Winspear, and might I suggest purchasing your tickets ASAP? Many dates for the run are already sold out. There are nine orchestra seats, two mezzanine seats, and four Dress Circle seats available tonight. That’s it, folks.
Meanwhile, there’s a benefit for the Human Rights Initiative at Goodfriend, which combines a couple of things we here at D like. HRI is run by our friend Bill Holston, and it’s a great, necessary organization that provides free legal services to immigrant victims of violence. All you have to do is bring a basic toiletry item, such as shampoo and conditioner, deodorant, toothbrushes, sunscreen, or diapers, with you to the bar this evening. And then you get enjoy the Peticolas tap takeover and live music from Fish Fry Bingo on the patio. The band recommends wearing your drinking socks. HRI’s toiletry drive will continue for a week or, so even if you can’t make it out tonight, you can go this weekend.
In Oak Cliff, TeCo Theatrical Productions hosts a conversation with the actor and playwright Eugene Lee, who serves as the artist in residence at Texas State University as well as the artistic director of the university’s Black and Latino Playwright’s Conference. He’ll discuss the history of black theater in Texas.
Finally, the Dallas Museum of Art concludes their mythology-inspired summer film series with a screening of O, Brother Where Art Thou? It’s all been in accessory to the exhibit The Body Beautiful in Ancient Greece. Tickets are five bucks.
For more to do tonight, here.
