This Is Only Intermission

Performing Arts Fort Worth, the owner and operator of Bass Performance Hall, will be following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and industry safety guidelines for reopening performing arts centers. While Bass Hall currently remains closed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to work toward a phased reopening plan with the goal of full capacity performances this fall. Additional details will be announced at a later date.

Performing Arts Fort Worth Presents

Dixie's Happy Hour

Part of the Broadway Specials Series

Streaming March 9 - 28, 2021

Everyone’s favorite Alabama redhead is back with an all new streaming show. If you’ve been to the smash off-Broadway hit Dixie’s Tupperware Party or spent time with her in Dixie’s: Never Wear a Tube Top While Riding a Mechanical Bull (and 16 other things I learned while I was drinking last Thursday) then you know Dixie’s sweet charm and infectious southern drawl always keep you in stitches. This time around, she’s going digital to bring you some new stories while she’s mixing up some cocktails and challenging you to find the Happy Hours that are right in front of you but you may be overlooking. 


Broadway Update

A lot has happened and changed in the past year…unexpected challenges and opportunities…health and safety at the forefront of our minds…but we look toward the future with hope and optimism.

While our industry continues to experience significant impacts as a result of this pandemic, we are hopeful that the performing arts will start to rebuild and rebound as we head into the fall.
