The cast of Elwood are regulars seen at the Ochre House Theater located in the Exposition near Fair Park, an area studded with interesting bars and restaurants which seems to be enjoying a surge of interest with those weary of the more bustling lifestyle of Deep Ellum, its closest neighbor. The theater enjoys the avant garde, but very palatable even for casual theater-goers. Most productions have a musical element to them, and the 50-seat theater typically will feature a four-piece band of musicians which also perform sound effects for each play.  Continue reading

Fourth DFW Alamo Drafthouse Announced


Alamo Drafthouse Cinema DFW announces today that the fourth location of the Alamo Drafthouse in North Texas is in the Denton County Town of Little Elm. Alamo Drafthouse Little Elm will open in the first quarter of 2016. The theater plans to open in the newly developing, Main Marketplace at the northwest corner of Main Street and FM 423.

Check Out Oral Fixation’s Final Show For The Season Tonight

by Steven Doyle

Last month I checked out this delightful program at the The MAC, located at 3120 McKinney Ave. and was thrilled.  Oral Fixation is about story telling and includes people from all backgrounds with diverse stories.  Tonight is the final night of the season and you need to check this out.

CraveDFW contributor and writer Steven Lindsey said it best: “It’s the perfect night of live theater: Nothing but a bare stage, a bar stool and regular people’s real stories — all taking up little more than an hour. Nicole carefully selects submissions and assembles the show to take the audience on an emotional journey. Some tales are heartwarming, some are hilarious, and others are absolutely remarkable.”     Continue reading
