Singer Anne Steele performs retro show at the Rose Room

The Rose Room is used to seeing big hair and big dreams, but that usually is accompanied by a drag queen. But what about a Midwestern girl growing up in the 1980s? That’s part of the one-woman show that out singer Anne Steele brings to Dallas. A night of nostalgia and song, Steele — the partner of former Dallasite Kelli Carpenter — moves through Madonna, Wham!, Sheena Easton, Janet Jackson and more in this all-new musical revue.

The Rose Room inside Station 4,
3911 Cedar Springs Road.
7 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. curtain. $10–$30.

Local actor Terry Vandivort unveils world premiere play

Dallas theater audiences will recognized Terry Vandivort from his many stage performances, often as a sardonic observer and cynical presence. But his real-life experiences as a gay man living in Dallas in the 1970s — especially one harrowing night in 1979 — will reveal an entirely new side to him. Vandivort wrote and performs in The Incident, his solo show, presented by The Drama Club about a mystery that has haunted him for more than 35 years.
