Push da button! ‘Color Purple’ returns to Fair Park

The movie made Oprah Winfrey a star, but the stage musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s novel The Color Purple, about a beset-upon black woman making her way in the segregated South of the early 20th century — including coming to terms with her own sexuality — stands up in its own right. The national tour of the recent revival settles into Fair Park Music Hall for a two-week engagement. Presented by Dallas Summer Musicals.

Compagnie Hervé Koubi dances into the Arts District

A few years ago, the Dallas debut of the French-Algerian dance company by choreographer Hervé Koubi wowed audiences with its bold modern mix of hip-hop and street-style dancing from an all-male company of African artists. It returns this weekend for a one-night-only presentation, certainly one of the most eagerly awaited dance programs of the year. Presented by TITAS.

DEETS:
Winspear Opera House

Theatre 3 unmasks ‘Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’

In a few weeks, the Dallas Theater Center will debut its new take on a 19th century classic of Gothic literature with Frankenstein, but if you want to whet your Victorian appetite, try a taste of Theatre 3’s new version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. One unique conceit of this version: While Jekyll is played by a single actor (Michael Federico), four actors play various identities of Mr. Hyde in this frightening psychological portrait of depravity.

DEETS:
Theatre 3, 2900 Routh St. in the Quadrangle.
In previews through Sunday.
