Things To Do In Dallas This Week: March 13-16

Spring break forever.

Monday (03/13)

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare project is drawing closer to the finish line with one of the Bard’s best, King Lear. The unabridged stage reading is in the Studio Theatre at the Wyly.

Pink Martini, the lively big band orchestra with an eclectic repertoire that includes everything from bossa nova to salsa, plays Annette Strauss Square.

Tuesday (03/14)

Mexico 1900-1950the DMA’s large new exhibition of influential Mexican art — including big-ticket work by artists like Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo — opened Sunday. Expect big crowds, thanks in part to “Yo Soy DMA,” a community outreach effort to broaden the museum’s multicultural appeal and ensure that North Texas Latinos are aware of the show. You’ll have until July 16 to see it.

The much-beloved indie rock outfit Minus The Bear plays the Granada. The great Beach Slang, earnest punk rock heroes, opens.

Wednesday (03/15)

Tony Bennett, an old guy who did an album with Lady Gaga once, sings at at Bass Performance Hall.

The Dallas Opera’s Madame Butterfly will grab a hold of your heartstrings and pull them until you’re bawling at the Winspear.

Thursday (03/16)

This concert at Trees will benefit the family of Matt Moseman, the lead singer for the Dallas band Edgewater who died late last year. Performers paying tribute to the man and his legacy include the remaining members of Edgewater, DownLo, and Meridian.

Spring has arrived, and it sounds an awful like Brahms’ sunny second symphony, at the top of the Dallas Symphony’s program this weekend at the Meyerson.

At the Texas Theatre, the transcendentally bad Troll 2 followed by a behind-the-screen show featuring Slackbeat and others.
