Trust no one. Suspect everyone. These are words to live by at Keith & Margo’s Ultimate Mystery Dinner Adventure, where the murderer just might be sitting right beside you. It’s all going down at Dallas’ 1936 landmark Old Mill Inn Restaurant, located inside Fair Park. While the mystery unfolds, you’ll be enjoying a four-course dinner and chatting with your fellow guests. Tell them your real identity, or invent a new one to throw them off track! When the first body hits the floor, a detective (played by an improvisational comedian) will lead the investigation and help you piece together clues — while keeping things lively with plenty of laughs. Just prepare to be interrogated yourself! When the food is gone and the clues run out, it’s time to finger whodunit. Channel your inner Sherlock, because the winner goes home with a prize.
The award winning Backdoor Comedy Club is the city’s longest running stand-up comedy showcase and, after 20 years, still reigns as the hot spot for Dallas comedy.

There’s much to savor in Rachmaninoff’s stirring Symphonic Dances: an alto saxophone and pulsating percussion in the first; a dark, eerie waltz in the second; and Russian Orthodox chants, tubular bells and the composer’s go-to Dies irae in the last. Pianist Garrick Ohlsson’s virtuosity is on full display in Barber’s breathtaking Piano Concerto, praised at its premiere as “the birth of an American classic…a big, splashy, old-fashioned concerto.”

Inspired by Lord Byron’s “dramatic poem,” Tchaikovsky’s brooding Manfred Symphony portrays the solitary hero searching for peace and redemption. Through a rich orchestral palette, the audience enters the world of spirits — good ones with lustrous strings and demonic ones with a shattering Dies irae. Organ phenom Cameron Carpenter shows off the Lay Family Concert Organ with Jongen’s tour de force, requiring, as one commentator says, a soloist with “brawn, stamina and grace.”
The otherworldly visuals will keep young ones mesmerized; the fun music and onstage antics will keep them entertained; and the perfect runtime (just about an hour) will keep them from even threatening to get antsy. Bonus benefit? You’ll enjoy the show, too.
