‘Paris Is Burning’ screening followed by fab after-party

For nearly 25 years, Paris Is Burning has been the definition of a cult documentary — a fascinating look into New York’s drag subculture of divaliciousness. Now CineWilde kicks off its 2015 series of monthly movies and mixers with a screening of the film, followed by an off-the-hook after-party and ball that should put glamour on the bill.

DEETS:
Texas Theatre, 231 W. Jefferson Blvd.
8 p.m. $5–$14.

Ronald K. Brown is in Evidence at Winspear

Dallas audiences may remember choreographer Ronald K. Brown’s work on  Grace for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Company, and those who do know what a treat it will be to see his own company at work, which specializes in modern themes and styles. Evidence returns to North Texas courtesy of TITAS for an evening of dance celebrating the music of Stevie Wonder. We’re overjoyed.

DEETS:
Winspear Opera House, 2403 Flora St.
8 p.m. ATTPAC.org.

Anjelah Johnson standup comes to Fair Park

You’ve seen her on commercials for Taco Cabana, but there’s more to this comedian than salsa jokes, though she can get pretty spicy. The Latina comic returns to Dallas for perhaps her biggest show yet inside the spacious Fair Park Music Hall.

DEETS:
Fair Park Music Hall, 901 First Ave.
7 p.m. LiveNation.com
