REUNITED AND IT FEELS SO GOOD: They rocked. They broke up. They‘re back together. Yes, Bush may fall into that age-old rock band break-up pattern, but they’ve still got it. After an eight year hiatus, the alternative band headed back to the studio to record their fifth album “Everything Always Now” that will hopefully be released in early 2011. The first track “Afterlife” has a more upbeat, catchy feel to it that strays from the darker past classics like “Machinehead” or “Glycerine.” Thanks to the efforts of lead vocalist Gavin Rossdale, Bush is not only recording in studio, but touring on stage. See them tonight at The Palladium Ballroom 8 p.m. and pretend it’s the ‘90s all over again.

THE ORIGINAL WOMANIZER: He swept women off their feet, every single one of them to be exact, by any deceitful means necessary until he finally met his match. Don Giovanni was the Italian heartthrob who took whatever and whomever he wanted. Catch Mozart’s Italian masterpiece currently on stage at the Winspear Opera House. The opera visiting Dallas stars Tony Award-winning baritone Paulo Szot (from Broadway’s South Pacific) as the powerful lead.  See Don Giovanni, the original womanizer tonight. Curtain is at 7:30 p.m.

A HAUNTING TALE OF TWO FACES: It’s the 1880s in London, England and Dr. Henry Jekyll has just developed a formula that is believed to rid the human body of evil. The result – a formula that does the exact opposite and induces evil in a person’s personality, creating the bone chilling Mr. Hyde. The Tony Award-winning "Jekyll and Hyde – The Musical" live at the Promenade Theater in Richardson features a lingering musical score by Frank Wildhorn and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse. Performing this weekend and on Halloween night, the man with two faces will be hard to tame this season. See actor Jack Agnew play a mad scientist at 7:30 p.m.
