There’s lots of DARTable live music this weekend, much of it free. There’s also a film festival, a celebration of Native American art, and more. Jump in to see this week’s DARTable offerings.

Thursday, April 27-Sunday, April 30

Tootsie, based on the famous film, tells the story of a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until an act of desperation lands him the role of a lifetime. The Tony-winning play is at the Winspear Opera House. That’s walkable from Pearl/Arts District Station on all four lines, as well as from the M-Line trolley.

Family Fit Fest 2022Saturday, April 29

Family FitFest is a free festival devoted to getting your family fit in every way: nutritionally, physically, mentally, financially and more. Aside from the educational presentations and physical activities, there are more than 100 businesses and non-profits on hand to help improve your quality of life. It all happens at Dallas Market Hall, served by Bus Route 230 departing from Southwestern Medical District/Parkland Station. It’s also a 10-minute walk from Market Center Station on the Green and Orange lines.

The Dallas International Film Festival features films from established and emerging artists, with screenings of more than 100 films from more than 60 countries. There are also Q&A sessions with filmmakers and actors, and other special events. The festival takes place at Violet Crown Cinema in West Village – a short walk from Cityplace/Uptown Station, and an even shorter one from the M-Line trolley.

The Plano Community Band presents “Musical Passport,” with an itinerary including stops in Italy, Ireland, France, England, and New York City. Take a musical trip at the Eisemann Center, just across the plaza from the Red Line’s Galatyn Park Station.
