I hate this pre-Halloween limbo. I have my pumpkins and the candy. Hurry up with the monsters.
If you’re looking for something part educational, part spiritual this evening, plan to drop by the Angelika Theater Center for a screening of Luminous Journey, a documentary by Dallas-based husband and wife duo, Tim and Anne Perry. The film traces the 67-year-old Abdu’l-Bahá’s travels and meetings with prominent figures of the the Western world in honor of the the centennial of his 1912 visit to America and Canada. Bahá was the leader the Bahá’í Faith, which emphasizes unity and peace, and the son of the founder. For me, the documentary is an opportunity to learn more about a piece of history and a faith that I don’t know too much about. For dinner, Urban Taco is always a tasty, convenient choice, and Sundown at the Granada isn’t too far away, either.
Elsewhere, the Dallas Chamber Music Society hosts the American String Quartet at SMU’s Caruth Auditorium for a program that consists of Alban Berg’s Lyric Suite, a tune “for the jilted,” according to the Guardian, and Beethoven’s quartet in A minor, Op. 132. The AMS has been around since 1974, when the original members met at Juilliard, and their combined musical prowess is worth taking in a concert at least once.
