Theatre Britain counts bodies until ‘There Were None’

Last year, Theatre Britain had a rousing success with its production of the record-setting Agatha Christie mystery The Mousetrap. Well, they know a good thing when they see it — they’ve returned to the works of Dame Ag with what is probably her second-best-known stage show, And Then There Were None (sometimes known as Ten Little Indians). Which of the guests on this island is a murderer — and who will be the victim(s) … and why? Opening night is Friday, but it runs ’til March 22.

DEETS:
Cox Building Playhouse
1517 H Ave., Plano.

‘Rock star’ cellist Maya Beiser performs with Wilco drummer

Maya Beiser plays the cello, but to simply call her a “cellist” is to understate what her elegant but spirited playing demonstrates. She has rock-star charisma — indeed, the drummer for her sets this weekend will be Glenn Kotche from the band Wilco — who has arranged and performed pieces not just from the likes of Vivaldi, but also Led Zeppelin and Nirvana. She’s presented by TITAS for two shows this weekend.

DEETS:
City Performance Hall
2520 Flora St.
March 6 and 7 at 8 p.m. $55–$75.

North Texas Irish Festival kicks off 33rd year

The Irish are used to cold, wet climates — that’s most of the reason they dance and drink whiskey and Guinness … to stay warm! So you will be in good company this weekend with the North Texas Irish Festival, which returns to Fair Park for a few days of bagpipes, face-painting, dogs in green neckerchiefs
and whiskey tastings. It’s also good practice for
St. Patrick’s Day next week.

DEETS:
Fair Park, Martin Luther King Boulevard and First Avenue.
Friday–Sunday.
Cost runs from free from 6.–7 p.m.
Friday to a weekend-long pass for $30.
