Things to do in Dallas tonight are coming right up, but first, a quick public service announcement: Episode one of the second season of Serial went live this morning. Sarah Koenig and her merry band of public radio producers have turned their attention from Adnan Syed and a 15-year-old Baltimore murder in order to set their sights on the case of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier who spent five years in Taliban captivity. Bergdahl has since been recovered and subsequently charged with desertion, and despite plenty of media coverage, the circumstances of his disappearance remain wonderfully mysterious. Apparently Serial landed an interview with Bergdahl, and it should be some top-notch podcast listening.

Once you’re done listening to that, go see the Avant Chamber Ballet, catch a holiday show, or celebrate Hanukkah with the great pianist Evgeny Kissin.

God bless Avant Chamber Ballet for refusing the temptation to do a straightforward Nutcracker adaptation to throw in the mix with every other dance company in North Texas. Instead, this holiday celebration at Dallas City Performance Hall will feature a rendition of a new one-act adaptation of the classic ballet along with a performance of Katie Cooper’s Sleigh Ride.

The longest-running New York show of all time finally came to a close earlier this year, but The Fantasticks marches on in a production at Theatre Three. The musical romantic comedy runs through Dec. 27.

The onslaught of holiday concerts begins with Austin blues singers Guy Forsyth and Carolyn Wonderland, who will “Roast the Holidays and Toast the New Year” this evening at the Kessler.

The famous pianist Evgeny Kissin will perform Yiddish poetry and music by Jewish composers at the Winspear. Perfect timing for Hanukkah.
