If the post-holiday blues have struck you, Dallas has many live entertainment events to get you laughing and your feet tapping again.

Now through January 20, the Soul Rep Theatre Company presents Elm Thicket, a play about the Dallas neighborhood where playwright Anyika McMillan-Herod lived. Set in 2020, the play is a “serio-comedy” about two people who grew up in the neighborhood exploring love and friendship as they navigate the pandemic and neighborhood gentrification. The play runs through January 20 at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre in Dallas, with tickets starting at $29.50.

In a tribute to classic black-and-white whodunit films, Pegasus Theatre presents Death Express! at the Eisemann Center in Richardson, now through January 21.

The murder mystery is set aboard the Trans-Continental Express from Los Angeles to New York, with a cast of characters including detective Harry Hunsacker, a European starlet, a murder mystery novelist, and more. Mayhem and murder abound! Tickets start at $29, with discounts available for students, seniors, and military.

The Hot Sardines are in town for one night only on Friday, January 19, at the Eisemann Center, bringing their own twist to classic jazz sounds from years gone by. With a mission to bring people in a disconnected world together through joyful music, the New York City ensemble is in the midst of a nationwide tour. Tickets start at $37.

The Producers, a Mel Brooks film turned Broadway smash hit turned movie favorite again, is back on the stage, this time at Moody Performance Hall in Dallas, from now through January 20. Presented by Lyric Stage, the musical comedy tells the story of a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his accountant who scheme to bilk their investors out of millions of dollars by producing a flop, but their show instead becomes a hit. Tickets start at $25.

Dog Man: The Musical is a “hilarious, heartfelt family adventure based on the worldwide bestselling series from Dav Pilkey, the creator of Captain Underpants and Cat Kid Comic Club.” The crime-fighting Dog Man, with the head of a dog and the body of a human, tries his best to be a good boy while saving the world from cyborg fish and evil cats. Presented by TheaterWorksUSA, the show runs until January 28 at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre in Dallas. Tickets start at $35.
