In case anyone didn’t notice: Dallasites now have the rare opportunity to see not one but two rock operas in town at the same time, works by major rock artists re-interpreted by local theater companies (we can argue about whether either show fits the “opera” bill, but still … ): The Undermain Theatre re-opened its production of Neil Young’s Greendale last night, after its brief, sold-out run in New York (see my original review here), and, of course, the Dallas Theater Center’s production of the Who’s Tommy runs through Sept. 28 (and you can see my review of it here).

In a nutshell: Neither production solves the fundamental narrative and dramatic problems in either script. But both present some terrific live rock ‘n’ roll, performed by local artists (Oso Closo’s the Who, Kenny Withrow’s Neil Young)
