COH stages landmark AIDS play, Larry Kramer’s ‘The Normal Heart’

It took decades to get Larry Kramer’s play The Normal Heart on Broadway, which it did two seasons ago. Now, it’s everywhere — including two productions in Dallas within the next month. The first will be presented by the Cathedral of Hope’s theater ministry for a free performance of the play that tackled head-on the political reaction to the AIDS crisis of the early 1980s. The show will get two performances: Friday night and again Sunday.

The Sanctuary at the Cathedral of Hope
5910 Cedar Springs Road.
Nov. 22 at 7:30 p.m.; Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. Free.

TGRA hosts underwear auction at Dallas Eagle

We admit it: They had us at “underwear auction.” Add to that the words “Texas Gay Rodeo Association” and we’re definitely headed in the right direction. This annual fundraiser is being presented by Scott Thompson, pictured, and Liquor First, the Mr. and Miss TGRA candidates for their 2015 titles. Emcee Christopher Wilson and auctioneer Steve Waldren promise celebrity appearances, plus a chance to mingle with the underwear models before you bid.

Dallas Eagle
8740 Maple Ave. Meet-and-greet at 6 p.m., auction at 7 p.m.
