Pablo Picasso was one of the defining artists of the 20th century — one best known for his painting. But he also dabbled in ceramics, as a new show at the Arlington Museum of Art demonstrates. Check out rare works from this legendary artist through February.

Erykah Badu headlines fundraising show for Lone Star Circus … musically and aerially

badu_dsc0827

The Lone Star Circus has arrived every Christmas season for the past nine years, and to start its 10th season, none other than Erykah Badu will be headlining a fundraiser to kick off the new lineup, which the year will even travel to Moody Gardens on Galveston Island. Badu will not only be singing at the event — she’ll also be performing her own aerial act! Is there nothing she can’t do?

DEETS: 7 for Parties,
150 Turtle Creek Blvd. ste. 107. 7 p.m.
Tickets starts at $125.

Scrooge looks like a lady: Dallas Theater Center reinvents Dickens

The Dallas Theater Center has long believed in race-blind casting, so we’ve had a black Ebenener Scrooge before. But gender-blind? You betcha. Sally Vahle — Dallas Voice’s Actor of the Year for 2015 and one of North Texas’ finest thespians — will take on the iconic popularizer of holiday humbuggery in the DTC’s annual incarnation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. It’s nice to see at least one woman getting a job she deserves this November. (And for the ninth consecutive year, DTC will partner with the North Texas Food Bank to raise money to feed those in need.)

DEETS: Wyly Theatre,
2400 Flora St.
In previews through Nov. 29.
