Uptown Players’ Dallas Pride Performing Arts Festival: A sneak peek

Uptown Players presents its second annual Dallas Pride Performing Arts Festival just in time for Pride, starting tonight with the one-night-only staging of Dustin Lance Black’sĀ 8, but there are seven more shows scheduled ā€” all with a gay twist of some sort, and all getting multiple performances.

Below is a run-down of the shows … some with write-ups by others in the festival. You can get individual tickets ($13) ā€” or a full festival pass ($53) ā€” here. All performances upstairs in Frank’s Place at the Kalita Humphreys Theater, 3636 Turtle Creek Blvd.
