Come from Away tells the true tale of 7,000 airline passengers who find themselves stranded in small-town Newfoundland in the wake of 9/11. Despite the trying circumstance, enduring friendships were formed. The musical runs through Sunday, March 20, at the Music Hall at Fair Park, a very short walk from Fair Park Station on the Green Line.

Mozart con Amore is Garland Symphony Orchestra's concert series paying homage to the great composer.

Hear all the performances at the Granville Arts Center, right next to the Blue Line’s Downtown Garland Station.

Sherwood: The Adventures of Robin Hood is a retelling of the classic legend, but features all the beloved characters of the original – as well as hijinks, romance and comedy. The comedy runs at the Irving Arts Center through March 26. Get there on Bus Route 229, which departs from the Orange Line’s Dallas College North Lake Campus Station.

Sweet Revenge tells the story of two hippie sisters (named Sunny and Joni, naturally) who run a bakery in New Jersey. Joni’s boyfriend convinces them to take out a huge loan to renovate the bakery and compete on a reality show. What could possibly go wrong? Find out at Plano’s Cox Playhouse through March 26. The venue is right across Haggard Park from Downtown Plano Station on the Red Line.


Sunday, March 20

Symphonic Sinatra delivers the experience of Frank Sinatra in his prime, in the form of doppelganger Brian Duprey. He’s backed by an orchestra that recreates the lush settings of Ol’ Blue Eyes’ original classics. There are afternoon and evening shows at the Eisemann Center for Performing Arts, across the plaza from the Red Line’s Galatyn Park Station.
