Through Sept. 26 Bright Star Concert Version, written by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, is at the Firehouse Theatre MainStage in September. Bright Star, one of our most beloved shows, returns as a concert production! This sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and 40s is a balm for the soul. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past - and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. With beautiful melodies and powerfully moving characters, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion. The Firehouse Theatre is located at 2535 Valley View Lane in Farmers Branch. Information: www.thefirehousetheatre.com.

Through Oct. 16 Tiny Beautiful Things follows Sugar, an online advice columnist who uses her personal experiences to help the real-life readers who pour their hearts out to her. Rich with humor, insight, compassion - and absolute honesty - Tiny Beautiful Things is about reaching when you're stuck, healing when you're broken, and finding the courage to take on the questions that have no answers. Tissues recommended. Catch it at the Wyly Theatre in Dallas, 2400 Flora St. in the Dallas Arts District. Information: dallastheatercenter.org.

Through Oct. 17 The world premiere comedy of Cake Ladies from playwright-in-residence Jonathan Norton (penny candy) is written specifically for this special season. The Scott County Community Playhouse is the pride of Cedar Oak, Texas, a city ravaged by the second largest drug-fueled HIV outbreak to ever hit small town America. When the COVID-19 pandemic shuts down the playhouse production of Angels in America, the loss is a devastating blow to a city desperate to mend. As the virus spreads, Cedar Oak's dark past comes to the surface, and best friends LeAnne (Sally Nystuen Vahle) and Tweedy-Bird (Liz Mikel) - affectionately known as "the cake ladies" - must confront their buried secrets in order to make Angels soar again! See it at the Wyly Theatre in Dallas, 2400 Flora St. in the Dallas Arts District. Information: dallastheatercenter.org.

Oct. 13-24 WaterTower Theatre presents The Taming. A patriotism obsessed Miss Georgia has kidnapped a Republican Senator's campaign manager and a liberal activist who is fighting to save the endangered pandashrew, and is holding them hostage in her hotel room the night before the big Miss America Pageant. In this hilarious, raucous, all-female "power-play" inspired by Shakespeare's Shrew, contestant Katherine has political aspirations to match her beauty pageant ambitions. All she needs to revolutionize the American government is the help of one ultra-conservative senator's aide on the cusp of a career breakthrough, and one bleeding-heart liberal blogger who will do anything for her cause. Well, that and a semi-historically-accurate trip where they search for the secret to fix our broken democracy by becoming James Madison and George Washington. Here's lookin' at you, America. Performances are at the WaterTower Theatre, 15650 Addison Road. Information: watertowertheatre.org.

Nov. 16-Dec. 5 Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, Hamilton has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre - a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education. With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow's acclaimed biography. Performances are at the Music Hall at Fair Park, 909 1st Avenue. Information: www.dallassummermusicals.org.
