Sing all the words to all the songs (because you have them memorized by now, right?) as this touring production makes a stop in Dallas. You’ll hear all those familiar tunes and more from the Tony and Oscar winner thanks to an expanded score by the film’s songwriters; the set and costumes promise a visual experience, too. July 20-Aug. 7
Jubilee Theatre/Performing Arts Fort Worth Bass Performance Hall, 525 Commerce St., Fort Worth, 817-212-4280, basshall.com
Jubilee started its season at Bass Hall and wraps things up at the grand venue with a musical that’s a time capsule of music — gospel, pop, R&B, disco — culture and the cutthroat entertainment industry of the time. The Broadway hit features local talent and design to give it a little Texas flair, including the collaborative direction of Jubilee’s D. Wambui Richardson and Steven A. Taylor. Aug. 11-14
