Things To Do In Dallas Tonight: Feb. 2

Can you spot all the feline wordplay in this description of the Amazing Acro-Cats, the circus cat troupe at the Texas Theatre tonight? I spy "purrform" and "purrformances." I see "available meow," which is a little too easy. "Kitten around" makes an appearance at the end of the second paragraph. I'm disappointed not to see "a-mew-sing" or some variation of "you have cat to be," but I'll let it slide because the company's tambourine-playing chicken is named Cluck Norris. If instrument-playing, skateboarding stunt cats aren't your cup of tea, there are plenty of human beings providing entertainment around town. Dallas residents tell their best stories at the "Partner In Crime" edition of Oral Fixation, and The Bridges of Madison County is your February musical from Dallas Summer Musicals.

If instrument-playing, skateboarding stunt cats aren’t your cup of tea, there are plenty of human beings providing entertainment around town. Dallas residents tell their best stories at the “Partner In Crime” edition of Oral Fixation, and The Bridges of Madison County is your February musical from Dallas Summer Musicals.

The Amazing Acro-Cats, who count a Guinness World Record-holder amongst their number, are at the Texas Theatre tonight and tomorrow.

Dallas’ Oral Fixation storytelling series will ask speakers to riff on a “Partner in Crime” theme at Dallas City Performance Hall. Of note, Jeffry Farrell talks about his relationship with the late Kumar Pallana, who you may recognize from several Wes Anderson films. Other speakers will discuss actual lives in crime, the search for a romantic partner, and more.

The Bridges of Madison County is a slow-burning romantic musical about an affair between a lonely housewife and a National Geographic photographer, who is on assignment shooting the titular bridges. The show, which has picked up Tony awards for its score, runs through Feb. 14 at the Fair Park Music Hall.
