AN EVENING WITH A LITTLE FRIEND: Al Pacino, the man of many infamous one-liners, takes the stage at the Winspear Opera House tonight for a riveting discussion about…himself. As part of the 2010-2011 Brinker International Forum Season, “The Godfather Trilogy,” “Scent of A Woman” and current “You Don’t Know Jack” star shares his creative magic with fans. Get inside the mind of the Oscar-winning actor as he talks about his career, backstage drama and what it takes to be an on-camera legend – with a chance to chat him up at the end of his little spiel for a Q & A session and a bit of original reading. Watch never before seen clips of the actor and hear the man behind the “Scarface” perform a bit of spoken word at 8 p.m.
ABBA CADABRA: There are tons of “Dancing Queen” imitators in the world, but tonight the sounds from one respectable tribute band honor the original music of ‘70s music sensation, ABBA. Performing with the highest of ABBA recreation quality, ABBA Mania began a quest for imitation stardom in 1998 and has been regarded as “Europe’s Premier ABBA Tribute Band.” They visit North Texas with their bell bottom costumes and shiny silk t-shirts at the Eisemann Center in Richardson at 8 p.m.
TEASING TUESDAY: Burlesque may be taboo in some parts of the state, but not in Dallas. Charlie Tips and Femme Vivre Present: Tuesday Night Tease Burlesque at Dyer Street Bar in Dallas. The evening of feathered boa twirling and stage sashaying also includes a bit of vaudeville comedy and a variety show. Held on the first and third Tuesday of every month, enter the world of burlesque to find out what all the hype is about and bring a canned good – the burlesque troupe and bar are also collecting non-perishable food items for the North Texas Food Bank. It costs 10 bucks, but you’d be happy to know that drink specials will be served all night. Doors open at 8:30 p.m. The show starts at 9 p.m.
