There is no denying that Irving is a town full of history. From before the railroad steamed its way through the early 20th century, settlers have been building and rebuilding our little community. In just this past decade, we've added a new convention center, new hotels, restaurants, shops, entertainment areas and various modes of transportation. And then this week we learned that MainStage Irving - the city's premier theater group - is adopting a new location at 222 East Irving Boulevard in historic Downtown Irving, aptly named "MainStage 222."  Our forever-changing city remains alive with all kinds of activities, reverberating across a vibrant and diverse landscape. We've listed for you here just a sampling of the many events taking place this weekend. Whether you live, work or visit here in Irving, we're the hometown city with something for everyone.

 

BOEING BOEING

Boeing Boeing

WHEN:  Friday - Saturday: 7:30 pm and Sunday: 2:30 pm

MainStage delivers a retro experience with 1960's international swinging bachelor Bernard and his three fiances. When his pal Robert drops in for a visit, he forgets which lies to tell to which fiance and before you know it, all three stewardesses are in town at the same time. How does the new Boeing superjet factor into the plot and how will Bernard avoid catastrophe? Land your seat at the Irving Arts Center this weekend and find out.  LEARN MORE
