Ragtime, the musical based on E.L. Doctorow’s novel, takes on weighty themes like wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, and hope and despair. This performance includes a 19-piece orchestra. Catch the show at the Majestic Theatre, a few blocks from St. Paul Station on all four DART Rail lines.

Las Sillas is a Spanish version of Eugène Ionesco’s The Chairs presented by Teatro Gotico from Mexico City and starring Cora Cardona, founder of Teatro Dallas.

Dallas Blooms: Birds in Paradise is in its first weekend at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden.
