This week’s takeaways: Life+Style

Posted on 22 Jun 2012 at 10:32am

The Bruce Wood Dance Project has three more performances of the choreographer’s new show at Booker T. Washington in the Arts District, including an encore of the first program, which debuted last night (with Gary Floyd providing beautiful vocals to the stunning new “I’m My Brother’s Keeper”). Wood is up to his old tricks: The technical beauty of classic ballet combined with the muscular physicality of modern dance plus Wood’s own unique contributions of humor and an emphasis on the potential of the male form. Don’t miss it — it ends this Sunday.

Also over this Sunday is Oklahoma! at Lyric Stage; don’t miss it, either (you have a busy weekend ahead of you!). As we’ve come to expect, director Cheryl Denson has crafted a massive and engaging piece of classic theater with a huge cast, full orchestra and dazzling sets. You have more time to see Jersey Boys at the Winspear Opera House — it’ll be around almost another month — but it’s just as unmissable.

There’s also a two-day window for Michael Jackson Immortal, the new Cirque du Soleil touring show, coming to the American Airlines Center on Tuesday and Wednesday, as at least you get a little breather. It promises more of Cirque’s patented magic. Then you can end your week of performances by catching RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Sharon Needles at the Rose Room on Thursday.

It’s Gay Pride Month, and next Thursday you can celebrate it with fashion show and fundraiser for RCD at the W Hotel, plus Pride in Lewisville this weekend. And how gay is Chris Crocker, who’s the subject on an HBO documentary, which starts airing Monday.
