The Lunar New Year and Valentine’s Day are two of the things DART can help you celebrate this weekend. There’s other stuff, too, ranging from cultural performances to live music. Read on to see where DART can take you.

Something Rotten! is set in the 1590s and follows a pair of brothers who set out to write a hit play – but find themselves in the shadow of one William Shakespeare. A soothsayer foresees that the future of theater will involve singing, dancing, and acting, and the two write the world’s very first musical. Catch the performance through Feb. 25 at the Firehouse Theatre, walkable from the Green Line’s Farmers Branch Station.
Morat comes to Irving in support of their 2022 album, Si Ayer Fuera Hoy. See the Colombian pop-rock Band at The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory. The venue is walkable from Irving Convention Center Station on the Orange Line. You can also take Bus Route 227.
