Kinsey Sicks perform ‘dragapella’ at Majestic
They are America’s favorite beauty shop quartet who perform in drag, and even though there’s not a lot of competition for that title, the Kinsey Sicks are still harmonious fun with their four-part song stylings and campy sense of humor. And the concert Friday even benefits Dallas’ own Sisters
of Perpetual Indulgence.

Oscar-nominated director Lee Daniels feted by Dallas Film Society
Lee Daniels scored his first Oscar nominations directing and producing Precious, and he’s on the short-list again for his latest film, Lee Daniels’ The Butler. But the gay filmmaker (and bestie with Oprah) has also worked on some of the edgiest indie films of the new millennium: The Woodsman (about a child molester), Monster’s Ball (Oscar for Halle Berry), The Paperboy (Southern Gothic gay sex) and more. The Dallas Film Society holds a dinner honoring Daniels on Friday, including a Q&A with film critic Elvis Mitchell, then on Saturday there will be a screening of one (or more) of his films (details have not been announced).

Dallas Summer Musicals stages ‘Lord of the Rings in Concert’
It’s a symphonic concert. No, it’s theater. No, it’s a movie. Actually, it’s a bit of all three. Dallas Summer Musicals invested in a massive stage production of The Lord of the Rings (it still hasn’t come to the U.S.), but you can get a taste of what they had in mind with this multimedia presentation, which features Howard Shore’s Oscar-winning score (played by the Dallas Pops) while excerpts from the film play above. It has the scope of opera, only with a movie and no annoying trailers.
