Flu season comes along every year, but, things are completely different now with the recent outbreak of COVID 19 (Coronavirus). The extremely contagious nature of this pandemic has caused the city of Dallas and the state of Texas to take precautionary measures to stem the tide of this disease.

Canceled Events in DFW

On March 19, 2020, Dallas City Council has extended the emergency declaration through Wednesday, April 29, and Dallas County has banned public gatherings of 10 people or more. That means sporting events like the Byron Nelson, concerts, festivals, and all other events are canceled.

With City, State and Federal agencies encouraging social distancing to limit our exposure to COVID 19, local attractions, movie theaters, and cultural venues like the Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas Arboretum and Texas Discovery Gardens are temporarily closed.

The Dallas Opera has canceled all performances and programs for the remainder of the 2019/2020 season. Bass Performance Hall has canceled all events through May 17, 2020.

The Dallas Summer Musicals and the AT & T Performing Arts Center also have canceled, postponed or reschedules all upcoming events.

Restaurant Dining Rooms Closed

Part of the ban on public gatherings means that restaurants, bars, and pubs are closed s to dine-in service. With schools closed and people being asked to work from home, this means a drastic change in lifestyle for most of us. 

There is some good news, though. With curbside pick, takeout and delivery available, you can still enjoy meals from your favorite DFW restaurants. Some local eateries will even deliver wine, margaritas, and cocktails along with your food orders.

The Donna Summer Musical
September 15 – 20, 2020

Toot toot, hey, beep beep!” 
Say those words, and you’ll immediately feel the beat, the spirit, the heat of the legendary Donna Summer. Her songs smashed every record. Her story shattered every barrier. Now, the queen arrives direct from Broadway. 

After a twice extended, sold-out run at San Diego’s celebrated La Jolla Playhouse, SUMMER: The Donna Summer Musical, partied on Broadway at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre and is now strutting its way across North America on a National Tour.

What the Constitution Means to Me
January 26 – 31, 2021

Direct from Broadway, the 2019 Tony® nominated Best Play and Pulitzer Prize finalist. Playwright Heidi Schreck’s boundary-breaking play breathes new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will shape the next generation of Americans. 

Waitress 
May 4 – 9, 2021

Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage. Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as “The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie” and “Betrayed By My Eggs Pie.” When a baking contest in a nearby county — and a satisfying encounter with someone new — show Jenna a chance at a fresh start, she must find the courage to seize it. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.

The Prom
June 1- 6, 2021

Everyone’s invited to the joyous Broadway hit that New York Magazine calls “smart and big-hearted” and The New York Times declares it “makes you believe it musical comedy again”! THE PROM is a new musical comedy about big Broadway stars on a mission to change the world and a love that unites them all. 

Add on these Broadway hits

Hadestown
June 1- 6, 2021

Hadestown intertwines two mythic tales — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — as it invites you on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back. Mitchell’s beguiling melodies and Chavkin’s poetic imagination pit industry against nature, doubt against faith and fear against love. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers, and singers, this is a haunting and hopeful theatrical experience that grabs you and never lets’s go.

Winner of eight 2019 Tony® Awards, this acclaimed new musical by celebrated singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and innovative director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) is a love story for today… and always.

OKLAHOMA!

Over 75 years after Rodgers & Hammerstein reinvented the American musical, this is OKLAHOMA! as you’ve never seen or heard it before – reimagined for the 21st century. 

Stripped down to reveal the darker psychological truths at its core, Daniel Fish’s production tells a story of a community circling its wagons against an outsider and the frontier life that shaped America. Upending the sunny romance of a farmer and a cowpoke, this OKLAHOMA! allows the classic musical – and our country – to be seen in a whole new light.
