Cabaret and Comedy Series at Theatre Arlington Keep the Entertainment Going Strong
Since Theatre Arlington reopened earlier this year after major building renovations, their productions have been receiving rave reviews. Of TA's most recent production, Rich Lopez of Dallas Voice wrote:
"Theatre Arlington seems to do really well with humor. Following up a hilariously strong production of 'The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,' they finish up its one-two punch of laughs with Peter Shaffer’s 'Black Comedy.' Which means, for a good time, call TA stat."
Now it's August, and the stage at Theatre Arlington is dark. But good news, theatre fans! There's still plenty of great, live entertainment taking place in TA's performance-friendly lobby, including three distinct cabaret series, all presented by Pinnacle Bank. There's limited seating, so get your tickets soon.... and yes, “Theatre BARlington” will be open for every event!
