Arts notes … and some things to do this weekend

5 Women extends run at CTD

Five Women Wearing the Same Dress, a catty Southern-fried (and queerish) comedy about bridesmaids that’s in a fun production at Contemporary Theatre of Dallas, has extended its run. Rather than closing this Sunday, you get an extra weekend to see the show (which I reviewed here). The additional performances will be Friday, July 15 and Saturday, July 16 at 8 p.m. and a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, July 17.

Ease on Down the Road to Wyly tonight

The Dallas Theater Center holds a pay-what-you-can performance of the new show, The Wiz, tonight at 8, but before that you can come to a street party in the Arts District, starting at 5 p.m.

Tiff’s Treats opens this weekend in Plano

I don’t mind admitting that I am addicted to Tiff’s Treats, the local company that delivers warm, delicious, fat-, calorie- and cholesterol-free (OK, I make up those last ones) cookies. They come in a metal lined box — how can you not love these? There are now three Tiff’s Treats stores in the Metroplex, and the fourth opens this weekend. You can come the pre-opening event on Saturday, where sales will benefit the Make-A-Wish foundation, with the grand opening on Sunday. The locale is 5750 State Highway 121.

Dish holds Drag Brunch Sunday

Dish Restaurant in the ilume continues its monthly drag brunch on Sunday, with hosts Krystal Summers and Erica Andrews. There are two seatings, at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., with a flat $25 including bottomless mimosas.

Page One opens July 15

In today’s print edition, we reviewed the documentary Page One, but the movie is not opening today but rather next Friday, July 15, at the Angeilka Fil Centers in Plano and Mokingbird Station.
