May Must-Dos

It’s a big, busy metro – here’s where to start

Return Engagement

Tony winner, Emmy winner, genuine star of stage and screen and also a Broken Arrow native … odds are pretty good you know the name Kristin Chenoweth. The enormous bundle of star power and brio in a 4-foot-11 frame remains in high demand, but she’s making time to swing back through the old familiar Sooner State May 14 to deliver “My Love Letter to Oklahoma” – a one-night-only concert at the OKC Civic Center benefiting the community-enhancing work of Allied Arts.

Wet, Wild and Wonderful

May 18, Oklahoma River
The temperature is rising, and the season of watery entertainment centered on the Riversport OKC complex is heating up with the return of the OKC Whitewater Festival. A day packed with thrilling racing for kayaks and rafts is interspersed with opportunities for family fun, including a new 600-foot waterslide and an all-day dog adoption event.

Murder, They Spoke

May 2, OKC Civic Center
If the phrase “true crime comedy podcast” sounds oddly self-contradictory, you might be on the verge of discovering a whole new obsession. Because Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark are bringing their hit show to OKC for a night of “My Favorite Murder” Live, and the 19 million fans who download the podcast monthly know that the duo’s distinctively funny take on discussing deadly mayhem makes for a strangely captivating and thoroughly entertaining time.

Starry Night

May 7, OKC Zoo Amphitheatre
Rejoice, citizens of Oklahoma! Spring is at its height, the perfect climatological conditions to get outside and get some fresh (if well-pollinated) air – and especially to enjoy some live music under the open night sky. The Zoo Amphitheatre is kicking off its season by welcoming Brandon Flowers and seven-time Grammy nominees The Killers. Expect hits from most recent album Wonderful, Wonderful all the way back to smash debut Hot Fuss.

 


 

Say Ole

May 17-19, OKC Civic Center
One of the most popular operas in history is getting a streamlined reinterpretation, cutting the runtime nearly in half, paring the cast down to four singers and turning the intensity way up. (Which is saying something considering the passion, jealousy and body count of the original.) Painted Sky Opera sings of a bloody love triangle between gypsy, bullfighter and soldier in “La Tragedie de Carmen.”
