Will Drag Racer Raven really be in Dallas  this weekend? You bet

OK, even we are amazed how many contestants from RuPaul’s Drag Race have visited Dallas lately, but hey, we ain’t complainin’! The latest is Raven, who will be attending as part of the Vegas Nights, a fundraiser for the Greg Dollgener Memorial AIDS Fund/MetroBall LifeWalk Team. There will be blackjack tables, poker, prizes, boys and a show headlined by Miss Thang. You can put money on it — it’ll be a hoot.

D’oh! Dark comedy ‘Mr. Burns’ gets its regional premiere at Stage West

We’re tending our fingers and saying “exxxcellent!” at the chance to see Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play. A regional premiere, this dark comedy is set after an apocalyptic catastrophe where the survivors perpetually reenact episodes of The Simpsons. Opening night is Saturday, but it runs through Sept. 13. Ay caramba!
