Durang’s Tony-winning ‘Vanya’ gets area premiere
Christopher Durang has been the patron saint of intellectual screwball comedies for decades (Beyond Therapy still triggers guffaws) but he finally hit the big-time last year, winning a Tony Award for his saucy comedy Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, a contemporary riff on Chekhov’s classic about sexy goings-on in the countryside. Uptown Players scored a coup getting it, giving North Texas the play’s regional premiere.

Denise and Gary, together again
It’s not enough that Denise Lee and Gary Lynn Floyd are just about the best singers in North Texas (at least when Lee isn’t headling in China and Floyd in SoCal) — they’re also best friends whose voices meld together more harmoniously that PB&J. So of course their new show Duets — part of the Sammons Center’s Cabaret Series — will be a
not-to-miss musical extravaganza for fans of everyone from Martina McBride to Billie Holliday. See you there.
Sammons Center for the Arts,
3930 Harry Hines Blvd.
8 p.m. $40 (includes beverages and appetizers).
