On Stage at Heritage is Irving’s terrific summer concert and activity series, with food trucks, good vibes and, of course, live music.

Denton Drive Live! continues its free outdoor concert series with the classic-rock stylings of The Elton Johns (performing in full costume) and Rock and Roll Over (dedicated to the music of KISS). The concert happens at The Grove @ Mustang Crossing, a short walk from Farmers Branch Station on the Green Line.
Artifice is a play that follows a struggling artist who finally gets his big break – then dies. It turns out to be a great career move, as his work suddenly skyrockets in value. His estranged wife sells it all to a wealthy real estate mogul, and her gallery becomes prominent. But then the deceased artist unexpectedly reappears. You can catch the performance through June 25 at the Cox Playhouse, just across Haggard Park from the Red Line’s Downtown Plano Station.
