I’ve mentioned before my new found love for the theater. If you are in Dallas or the surrounding areas, you won’t want to miss this next show at the Dallas Summer Musicals -BULLETS OVER BROADWAY.
Seeing that I’m a theater newbie, i’ve never seen BULLETS OVER BROADWAY – but have heard rave reviews, watched the trailer, read all about this show and I can’t wait. Written by Woody Allen, this musical comedy is based on the screenplay by Allen and Douglas McGarth for the 1994 film. BULLETS OVER BROADWAY runs from June 14-26, 2016 at the Music Hall at Fair Park.
We’re making it a date night. A good dinner downtown, maybe the Lot – then a show. Last show, Ragtime – I took my daughter who is 13. She had a blast, while it was a great daughter date but this go round, it’s the husband’s turn.
