With the fall in sight, it seems like all anybody wants to talk about is the big bike race. While there are plenty of arts events in conjunction with that highly anticipated takeover of the city (see next week’s issue), our 2015 fall arts preview mostly focuses on other highlights in the months of September, October and November.

We asked our critics to explore some of the more intriguing events announced so far from the fields of fine arts, theater, books, dance, music and film.

So if you’re a lifer, or maybe just visiting from out of town and considering not leaving, hopefully this early look at the fall arts season will help you plan ahead. You know, tickets and babysitters, pedicures, abdomen toning, sustained heavy drinking and such — all the different things that go on before a trip to the theater or club. — Brent Baldwin
