Bill, that wet fart wannabe of a natural disaster, has been downgraded to a tropical depression. It’s still a first-rate pain in the neck, sending rain our way and possibly throwing a wrench into the works for the ever-important things to do this week.

I’d keep a watchful eye on how the weather might affect tonight’s Shakespeare run-through at the Samuell-Grand Amphitheatre, and if that falls through, we’ve got some indoor options for your evening out in Dallas.

1. Fort Worth singer-songwriter Rahim Quazi is celebrating the release of his first album in seven years with a show at the Kessler, which would put a roof over your head and some wonderful music in your ears.

2. Local playwright Vicki Caroline Cheatwood’s Manicures and Monuments has a 7:30 pm show at WaterTower Theatre in Addison. A dry and entertaining possibility.

3. Shakespeare Dallas will do a speed run through the entirety of the Bard’s oeuvre, clocking in at a cool 90 minutes for The Compleat Wrks of Wllm Shkspr (abridged) [revised]. This might be a wet evening out at the Samuell-Grand Amphitheatre, but this also looks like a lot of fun and may be worth a little sogginess.
