Jean-Luc Picard, Captain of the Starship Enterprise, is in town this weekend for Comic Con. So is Stan Lee. Let us all salute this momentous occasion with a collective glasses readjustment.
All right, fellow office-dwellers! Let's bust out of our workweek ruts and slip into something a little more comfortable, like experimental theater, opera, competitive art handling and Nerdfest 2012 (aka: Dallas Comic Con). Click the titles to learn more about each event and share this party guide with your friends. They'd do it for you. Now, let's boldly go where no one has gone before. Thursday 5.17 Flesh World (at 500 Singleton Blvd.) -- Typically I get nervous when theatrical productions incorporate the audience, but this very strange new play (performance art?) happening in a converted welding shop at 500 Singleton Blvd. is worth confronting my inhibitions. It involves a spiritual spy, reincarnation and oddities galore. Only 30 people are allowed in at a time, so snatch up a ticket.
