It’s the gayest tough-guy musical since the Jets arabesqued the crap out of the Sharks with razors, chains and a step-ball-change combination. So it’s a good fit that the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Dallas will hold its gala fundraiser for the Dallas Theater Center during the penultimate performance of the musical Give It Up! The event starts at 6:30 p.m. with an open-bar reception and silent auction at the new Wyly Theatre, followed by a performance of the show, set in the world of college basketball. After the curtain call, attendees are invited onstage for a cast party and Valentine’s Day dance.
Deets: Wyly Theatre, 2400 Flora St. Feb. 13. Reception at 6:30 p.m., show at 8 p.m. $150. GayandLesbianFundforDallas.org.
