Del Shores gets sordid again at the Rose Room

Del Shores makes no bones about his affection for Dallas audiences — they account for his best-selling standup shows anywhere, which is no doubt why he keeps coming back. His latest one-man monologue —about his passions (good and bad) — is called, appropriately enough, My Sordid Best, and he promises classics from his prior shows “as well as new shit.” Yeah, that’s what you get with a Del Shores performance.

DEETS:
The Rose Room inside Station 4
3911 Cedar Springs Road.
8 p.m. $10–$20.

‘Carmen’ opens Dallas Opera season

It’s one of the most famous of all operas and hands-down, Bizet’s masterpiece: A story of passion, romance and tragedy, sung in French and set to a captivating score (everyone knows the big aria, “Habanera”). Carmen features French mezzo Clementine Margaine as the fiery gypsy, with two tenors alternating as Don Jose.

DEETS:

2403 Flora St.
Oct. 25–Nov. 11.

You can go to hell & back (in costume!) with MBS’ ‘Inferno’

One thing you can usually count on in a Mark-Brian Sonna production is an ample dose of nudity — or seminudity, at least. And you get it (plus a lot of dark Halloween themes) in the revival of Dante: Inferno. Part play, part musical (there’s dancing! In hell!), it’s now, also, part costume party. Audience members who attend on Oct. 31 are encouraged to show up in costume — at intermission, the best one wins a prize. And all attendees that night get a goodie bag of treats … thought when the devil is involved, you can usually expect a trick or two as well.

DEETS:
Stone Cottage Theatre,
15650 Addison Road, Addison.
Through Nov. 9 (extended).
MBSProductions.net or 214-477-4942.
