University of Texas at Arlington's Department of Theatre Arts Presents COMPANY - Nov. 14 - 18, 2018

The University of Texas at Arlington’s Maverick Theatre Company presents its first musicalof the 2018-19 season, Stephen Sondheim’s COMPANY. From musical theatre’s most renowned composer, COMPANY is largely regarded as a trailblazer of the dark-comedy, modern-musical genre and the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Lyrics and Best Book. On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor, Robert, contemplates his unmarried state. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks and even a wedding, his friends – “those good and crazy people [his] married friends” – explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse. The habitually single Robert is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions.

COMPANY will be presented in the UTA Mainstage Theatre (Fine Arts Building, North Section, Room 174) located at 502 South Cooper Street on the UTA campus. Performances of COMPANY are November 14th, 15th, 16th, & 17th at 8:00 p.m. and November 18th at 2:30 p.m.. Tickets are $12 for the general public and $10 for students/senior citizens/UTA faculty & staff. For further information, please contact the UTA’s Department of Theatre Arts box office at 817.272.2669.

Timeless Concerts Presents Italy v Germany Concert

Timeless Concerts returns to the Arlington Museum of Art to present another in its long running series of classical concerts. An hour of music that spans centuries will begin at 8pm on Saturday, November 10.

The Chenoweth-Hood-Kang trio will represent Germany with some of the greatest and most famous music of all time composed in Germany: Beethoven and Brahms. Their tenor and soprano, Sergio Cepeda and Judith Rodriguez, will represent Italy with passionate Puccini and Verdi! Who is more dramatic and passionate, the Germans, or the Italians? Works by German film score composer Hans Zimmer will also be performed. Many may be surprised that although his name is not familiar, his scores certainly are, ranging from “Driving Miss Daisy” to “Pirates of the Caribbean.” The post-concert party is included in the ticket price, when you may give your requests to pianist Steve Stroud. Complimentary buffet of fruit/cheese/desserts/wine/soft drinks will be available and BYOB accepted.
