‘Spring Awakening’ opens at Bass Hall tonight

Just two days for ‘Spring’ break
Once you get past the darkness of the original version on Monday, do a 180 with the updated musical Spring Awakening. Musician Duncan Sheik penned the music and the touring show features local actress Elizabeth Judd. She’s kind of a big deal as the female lead.  So is the show which won eight Tony awards including best musical.

DEETS: Bass Hall, 525 Commerce St., Fort Worth. Nov. 9–10. 7:30 p.m. BassHall.com.

Benise brings his nouveau flamenco to Bass Hall

Long luxurious hair and Spanish guitar — what’s more to say?

Head to Cowtown tonight for some super-sexy Benise. He’s like a romance cover come to life — those eyes, that face, the hair! He’s like Fabio with a guitar. Benise calls his playing nouveau flamenco which fuses Spanish guitar, African tribal influences and rock into a music all his own. The good thing is, he’s got talent! Don’t let the looks fool  you. He has some impressive intricacies in his guitar-playing arsenal.

Of course, we’re going to tell Performing Arts Fort Worth who’s presenting the show that we expect a prominently opened-button shirt.

DEETS: Bass Hall, 525 Commerce St., Fort Worth. $22–$66. 8 p.m. BassHall.com.
