Danielle Georgiou’s ‘Donkey Beach’ promises to kick ass

The Danielle Georgiou Dance Group isn’t just a “dance group” at all. What they do is more meta-theater, combining music, spoken word and, of course, movement in creative and artistic ways — usually addressing issues like sex, identity and just having fun. And that’s what you’ll do at Donkey Beach, DGDG’s newest show, set on magical sands with quirky characters and an enchanted donkey. This limited run will be performed as part of the Dallas Arts District’s Elevator Series.

DEETS: Hamon Hall at the Winspear Opera House,

Melissa-Etheridge

Melissa Etheridge performs live at the Majestic

She’s a Grammy winner, an Oscar winner, a hard-rocking guitar shero, but as much as anything, Melissa Etheridge is an icon for the gay community. Ever since coming out (at Bill Clinton’s first inauguration, no less), she’s been a leader not just from the concert stage, but the political stage … and boy does she deliver live. She arrives for a one-night-only show at the Majestic this week. (And check out DallasVoice.com’s InstanTea blog for our recent interview with her.)

DEETS: Majestic Theatre,

Stage West hooks you up with ‘Sex with Strangers’

A man and woman with similar but wildly divergent careers — she’s an unsuccessful but serious literary novelist, he’s a fashion, widely-read relationship blogger — find themselves holed up in the same B&B alone. And the idea of a hookup intrigues them… but will this work out? Stage West continues its racy season with the aptly-titled Sex with Strangers. The company’s artistic director, Dana Schultes, joins Jake Buchanan in this modern romantic comedy.
