Lyric reintroduces Loesser musical
It was 1965 when composer Frank Loesser’s last stage musical, Pleasures and Palaces, closed out-of-town before opening on B’way. The score hasn’t been heard since. But that’s because Lyric Stage wasn’t around most of that time. North Texas’ premiere producer of splashy musical has once again enlisted Jay Dias,
pictured, to lead a 40-piece orchestra in a concert staging of this forgotten classic set in the court of Catherine the Great. See it now, or wait another 45 years for your next shot.

Irving Arts Center
3333 N. MacArthur Blvd., Irving.
Jan. 25–26 at 8 p.m., Jan. 27 at 2:30 p.m.
