April’s Prime Entertainment Picks



Pablo Picasso self-portrait

It’s A Big, Busy Metro Out There – If You Can’t Make It To Everything, Here’s Where To Start →

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Shaken, Stirred, Stylish

Art deco style represents a spirit of glamour, exuberance and faith in social progress – precisely the perfect theme for the annual martini-centric party that helps Allied Arts encourage the state’s present and future creativity. An art auction, hors d’oeuvres and a selection of specialty beverages will commingle to make ARTini Deco a very stylish soiree indeed.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Death Becomes Him

Languishing unperformed for over a century after the passing of its author (the one and only Mark Twain), “Is He Dead?” follows a struggling artist’s sudden rise to fame … after faking his demise. Inventing a sister as his new disguise helps, but romantic complications arise (don’t they always?) in Carpenter Square’s door-slamming (coffin-slamming?) farce.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Rabbit of Rest

A deep discussion about the relative values of genius, talent and inspiration, and how their intersections can shape the course of history? Sounds like a drink might be in order. Picasso, Einstein and other luminaries spend most of Steve Martin’s play pontificating in the namesake bar as TheatreOCU visits “Picasso at the Lapin Agile.”

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

The Magic Touch

A wonderful wizard could scarcely conjure up a more delightful time than this: Oklahoma Children’s Theatre’s annual Fairy Tale Ball offers revels for multiple ages, whether parent, tween or little pirate/prince/fairy/munchkin/witch (good or bad). Fire up your imagination, choose a costume and get ready to head over the rainbow for Adventure: OZ.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Pop Goes the District

The stretch of NW 23rd Street between Broadway and Penn is well on its way from rundown to positively stellar; that mercantile rejuvenation is ample cause for a toast, wouldn’t you say? Uptown Uncorked combines food and drinks, music and mingling to raise funds for beautification of public spaces. Slainte!

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Fresh Beauty

You know the story, but this is something you’ve never seen before. With a libretto and choreography by Artistic Director Robert Mills, a score composed by Kermit Poling and played by the OKC Philharmonic and feats of graceful strength by the OKC Ballet, this “Beauty and the Beast” makes a tale as old as time into a brand-new joy.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Making It Happen

The Arts Council of OKC’s free, open-air assembly of arts, crafts, performers, food and general conviviality called the Festival of the Arts is still an absolute must-see and greener than ever (now entirely compostable or recyclable). More than 500 artists from across the country applied to be part of this celebration; the 144 chosen represent the crème de la creativity.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Tropical Getaway

Balmy atmosphere, intoxicating music and the triumph of love over prejudice make “South Pacific” a dreamily enjoyable theatrical interlude to the bustle of daily life; in addition to a sold-out special performance for schoolchildren, CityRep and OCU’s Opera and Music Theater Company pool (or perhaps lagoon) their talents to share three enchanted evenings and an enchanted matinee.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Prime Movers

Hang on to your face; there’s a better-than-excellent chance it’s in danger of being rocked right off at this free three-day gathering. Though a multi-block stretch of Main Street is closed to cars, it has more than enough foot traffic as tens of thousands of fans crowd together to sample the audio wares of – literally – hundreds of bands. The Bright Light Social Hour, Horse Thief, Moreland & Arbuckle, the Tequila Songbirds, tons of local talent and more headline the 7th annual Norman Music Festival. Keep on rockin’.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Charged Up

It’s the dawn of a bigger world for sports in the metro as Coach Jimmy Nielsen leads the OKC Energy FC soccer team into action for its first home game … ever. The Orlando City Lions are the Energy’s first home foe; what better test to kick off the OKC season than the defending USL PRO league champs?

October’s Prime Entertainment Picks

A massive choral concert, the Garden Tour for Connoisseurs, a theatrical premiere from Lyric and the return of 6 Degrees of Bacon – there are all kinds of sources for entertainment and enlightenment in this bustling metro, so if you can’t make it to everything, here’s where to start.

12 x 12 Offers 175 Degrees of Art

Although the pieces are small, the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition’s 12 x 12 Art Sale is big fun and a bigger vehicle for creative support.

The Plaza District’s Bigger, Better Block Blowout

Toast the expansion of a homegrown neighborhood in the annual Plaza District Festival.
