Foote doesn’t fool around
As part of the Horton Foote Festival, Uptown Players joins in with The Young Man From Atlanta. As the Kidders, an affluent Houston family, venture into a new business, their deceased son’s roommate enters the picture. Upon his arrival, the Kidders may have to face some realities about their son, his death and this young man.

She’s doing it all for you
Let’s face it — Janet hasn’t been the hitmaker she once was and now she’s all into this acting thing. Now she’s on the road with her Number Ones tour and the buzz is good about her scaled-back show in smaller venues. We know what to call her when we’re nasty, but maybe after this concert, we can call her “great” again.
DEETS: Verizon Theatre, 1001 Performance Place. 8 p.m. $49–$125. Ticketmaster.com.
Karma and the king
Mystery follows the title character in The Dallas Opera’s Boris Gudonov. The Russian king is haunted by the specter of a child. Everyone speculates he ordered a child killed so he could rise to the throne. Are his haunts the ghost of that child or is guilt creeping upon the tsar?
DEETS: Winspear Opera House, 2403 Flora St. 2 p.m. $29–$155. ATTPAC.org.
