“This is certainly an upscale neighborhood restaurant, but the ambiance is sophisticated without a hint of snobbery. Small details like orange slices in the water and a complimentary bowl of crisp shoestring sweet potatoes add to the charm. All the seafood entrees we’ve tried have been outstanding.”

“This breezy timeless enclave is as appealing today as it was 25 years ago when the owner first opened the door.”

THE MAJESTIC THEATRE - The Majestic Theatre opened April 11, 1921 during the Vaudeville era. Over the years it hosted various acts such as Houdini and Bob Hope. As movies pushed aside vaudeville, the Majestic became a center for premieres bringing such stars as Jimmy Stewart, Gregory Peck and John Wayne to Dallas. Live entertainment continued by Big Bands featuring such musicians as Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington. But July 16, 1973, the Majestic Theatre went dark. The Hobilitzelle Foundation, who owned the Majestic Theatre, presented it to the City of Dallas January 31, 1976. Restoration and renovations were carried out including restoring the Renaissance Baroque exterior and the reapplication of the 23K gold leaf to interior accents and molding. The Majestic was named to the National Register of Historic Places and re-opened as a center for the performing arts on January 28, 1983. Besides the main stage is the Experimental Theatre that opened in April 1999. It is designed for smaller-scale plays, dance and theatrical productions, and seats up to 100 patrons. 1925 Elm St. www.liveatthemajestic.com or call 214-880-0137.

Also included in the Meyerson Symphony Center is 918 panels of African cherrywood and 216 panels of America cherrywood. Architect of the acoustically superb structure was I. M. Pei. Music Director of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Andrew Litton, says “Performing here is one of the greatest privileges of my position.” 2301 Flora Street, 214-670-3600 or www.meyersonsymphonycenter.com.

Museum of Nature & Science - The Museum of Nature & Science has three main components: the Nature Building (formerly the Dallas Museum of Natural History), the Science Building (former The Science Place) and the Children’s Museum (formerly the Dallas Children’s Museum housed at Valley View Center). The Nature Building presents its collections in simulated habitats frequented by many creatures that lived thousands of years ago. In the Texas Dinosaurs exhibit, visitors will see a giant Tyrannosaurus Rex feasting on the bones of an Alamosaurus, while the skull of a Torosaurus lies exposed in a riverbed. A mural of the prehistoric Big Bend area provides the backdrop for this exhibit since scientists have discovered evidence that the T. rex once inhabited that area of Texas. Also see the Alamosaurus, a group of animals called sauropods, so large it was once thought they existed in lakes or rivers to help support their massive weight, but the similarity in leg structure with elephants makes it appear they actually lived on land. The Leonhardt

Lagoon Nature Walk features markers and panels describing the birds, insects, plants, trees, fish and other wildlife that make their homes in the lagoon in Fair Park. In the Ice Age Dallas exhibit, visitors will see several fossils including the Trinity River Mammoth of 20,000 years ago that lived and grazed along the banks of the river where Dallas now stands.

It’s what they’ve worked for - with every drop of sweat, every hour of training, every day of their lives. It’s the one opportunity to do what they’ve always dreamed -- to have the chance to dance. This is A Chorus Line, the musical for everyone who’s ever had a dream and put it all on the line. Winner of nine Tony Awards®, including “Best Musical” and the Pulitzer Prize for drama, this singular sensation is the longest-running American Broadway musical ever. Now A Chorus Line returns.

Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style. After turning Broadway and MTV hot pink, this “Feel-Good Song and Dance Juggernaut” (New York Magazine) is “The Best New Musical Around!” (WOR)
