‘Annie Get Your Gun’ gets concert performance

Lyric Stage’s latest production is one of the most popular musicals of the golden age of Broadway, Irving Berlin’s rarely-seen Annie Get Your Gun. The high-kicking Western-themed comedy features classic songs (“There’s No Business Like Show Business,” “Anything You Can Do”), presented as they were originally intended: A full 34-piece orchestra. This concert version plays only one weekend instead of the usual two, so now’s the time!

Irving Arts Center,
3333 N. MacArthur Blvd., Irving.
Jan. 23–25. LyricStage.org.

Cavalia Odysseo gallops into North Texas

If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil show, you know how fabulous something under a big top can be. Well, imagine the same, with horses. That’s Cavalia, which combines the raw power and beauty of equestrian mastery with spectacle and showmanship that includes acrobatics, humor and hot men in singlets. It’s been a decade since the show last made it to North Texas, and this new show, called Odysseo, promises new delights. It will play daily with matinee and evening performances; special packages, including premium seating and a full dinner service, are also available.

Under the big top at Dr Pepper Ballpark,
7300 Rough Riders Trail, Frisco.
Tickets from $29.50. Cavalia.net.
