When Mortimer Brewster goes home to share the happy news of his engagement, he discovers his family's gone completely crazy in the wicked farce Arsenic and Old Lace.

Originally written for the stage in 1939 and later made into a beloved Frank Capra film starring Cary Grant, Arsenic and Old Lace follows poor Mortimer as he juggles his pre-marriage jitters with family antics and the meddling police. Catch this delightfully dark comedy at Dallas' Pocket Sandwich Theatre.

The Birds: Stage Thriller Shares Inspiration With Hitchcock Film
Buy Tickets $17.50 - $20 $35 - $40
Daphne du Maurier's short story The Birds not only inspired Alfred Hitchcock's classic film, it provided the basis for playwright Conor McPherson's innovative stage play. Unlike the film, the action here is limited to an abandoned house occupied by two strangers who've taken refuge from the relentless avian attacks outside. Though safe from the onslaught, the pair must overcome a lack of electricity and food, growing increasingly desperate as the danger mounts. They're soon joined by other fleeing citizens who bring with them grim news about the rest of humanity, in addition to an increased sense of paranoia and anxiety. It's not long before the group's discussions turn from simple survival to defining the rules of a new society, resulting in a tense experience that will have you scanning the skies on your way home from The Birds at Theatre Too in Dallas.

Def Leppard Tribute Band Def Leggend

With massive hits like "Pour Some Sugar on Me," "Foolin'" and "Animal," Def Leppard defined '80s pop metal -- so much so that Rolling Stone has included not one, but two of their records (Pyromania and Hysteria) on their list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. The English band was also known for its explosive live shows, and that's where Def Leggend comes in. The Dallas-based tribute band is made up of veteran musicians and is considered one of the most authentic Def Leppard tributes in the country. Before Def Leggend takes the stage at House of Blues Dallas, Metallica tribute Kill Em All and Ozzy Osbourne tribute Ozzmosis perform.
