If you are looking for something to do in Uptown this weekend, look no further. These things are all close to Bailey’s Uptown Inn if you’re staying with us in Dallas this weekend.
Duets is a series of duets, but spoken not sung. Performed by just two actors, one male and one female, Peter Quilter has structured the comedy into four short plays. In Theater Three’s basement production, Carol Farabee Blackwood and Terry Dobson play all of the characters. The stories include a middle aged couple who met through a magazine, a woman with a crush on her gay boss, a couple planning a vacation to celebrate their divorce and a sister and brother just days before one of them remarries. The play was written as an homage to Neil Simon and explores the lighter side of relationships and romance. The show is at 8:00 p.m both Friday and Saturday and the tickets sell for $25 to $30.
Museums & Music
“Til Midnight at the Nasher – The Nasher Sculpture Center will be staying open late this Friday, September 16th, so bring a blanket and plan to enjoy the cooler weather in the outdoor sculpture garden. Live 80, a band that covers all the hits from the 80’s will perform live from 7 PM to 9 PM followed by the classic movie Footloose. In addition to the movie and band line-up, ‘til Midnight also features al fresco dining by Wolfgang Puck Catering and gallery tours. Admission for adults is $10. Seniors get in for $7.
Austin’s own Explosions in the Sky will be performing Friday at the Annette Strauss Square, an open air park in the downtown area. Think of rock instruments – guitar, bass and drums – used to create sort of a cross between alternative and movie soundtrack. In fact this band wrote and performed much of the music in the 2004 film Friday Night Lights, which tells the story of the players and coach of a small town Texas football team. The show starts at 8 PM and the tickets sell for $25 to $35.
