Things To Do In Dallas This Week: April 17-20

A theater-heavy edition of your weekly guide to going out.

Monday (04/17)

The Dallas Chamber Music Society brings the virtuosic Trio Solisti to Caruth Auditorium for a program that includes music by Beethoven, Turina, and Arensky.

Straight White Mena privilege-checking satire and thoughtful meditation on identity politics in the U.S., has a pay-what-you-can performance on the books tonight at Bryant Hall, on the Kalita Humphreys Theater campus. The show runs through May 6.

Tuesday (04/18)

Stephen Tobolowsky, the character actor, podcasting raconteur, and author — a book of short stories, My Adventures With God, is being leveraged here — appears at the DMA.

History is more fun with a drink in hand. Hence, Pour Yourself Into History, in which the Dallas Historical Society and Preservation Dallas talk about the old days at a local watering hole. Uptown Pub, one of the oldest buildings on McKinney Avenue, is the locale for this edition.

Wednesday (04/19)

ElectraDallas Theater Center’s creatively staged adaptation of the Sophocles tragedy, continues at Annette Strauss Square.

Prints by the artist Helen Frankenthaler, the abstract expressionist known mostly for her breathtaking “soak-stain” canvasses, went on display recently at the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth.

Thursday (04/20)

Tom Segura, a very funny stand-up whose Netflix special you should nevertheless probably watch before deciding if this is your kind of thing, performs at House of Blues.

Undermain Theatre’s Really, a deep one that is among many other things about art’s limitations in reflecting reality, is up and running through May 6.

Los Lobos, as sturdy and reliable as rock bands come, play the Kessler.
