Fun Home -- winner of five 2015 Tony Awards, including Best Musical -- has been praised as "the best of what Broadway can do" (Associated Press) and "something of a miracle" (New York Magazine). Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, Fun Home tells the story of Alison at three different ages, alongside her uniquely dysfunctional family -- her mother, brothers and brilliant, volatile father. Intimate, emotional and refreshingly honest, Fun Home captures the experience of seeing your parents through grown-up eyes. See the show Newsday calls "a blazingly original heartbreaker and a nonstop treasure of invention" at Houston's Hobby Center for the Performing Arts.
Artrageous is a one-of-a-kind crossover experience that blends captivating vocals, intricate choreography and exciting audience participation. In this performance at The Grand in Galveston Island, a troupe of artists, musicians, singers and dancers creates a whole gallery of colorful and spontaneous paintings on the stage before your very eyes. Paying tribute to a variety of art forms, pop icons and musical genres, Artrageous is an unforgettable celebration of the creative process that will have you on your feet by the end of the show.
Get thee forth to witness three of the wittiest men around as they take to the stage (in tights!) for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged). This trio of hilarious performers takes on the seemingly impossible challenge of performing the nuts 'n' bolts of each of Shakespeare's 37 plays in less than two hours. These theater classics undergo some changes, of course -- Titus Andronicus becomes a cooking show, Othello's summarized in rap and Hamlet is pared down to less than a minute. People of all ages will be pulled in by the cheeky, madcap comedy and still -- miraculously -- by show's end, you'll have a general idea of the plot of every comedy, tragedy and historical work written by the Bard, all played out on the stage of Playhouse 1960 in Houston.
Five aging spinsters all share the same house -- and the same passionate dislike for one another! But when folks start turning up dead, a few seemingly simple questions need to be answered: What keeps these women together? What dark secret are they all hiding? Why do they all keep dying? And what really happened to Jinx the cat? From the clever mind of Houston playwright Pat Cook (Sort Of, The Marquis Crossing Ladies Society's First Attempt at Murder) comes Dead Giveaway, a delightfully devilish comedy whodunnit at Theatre Suburbia that's sure to keep you on your toes 'til the final curtain.

The timeless tale teaches audiences about loyalty, honor, courage, tradition, integrity and persistence.
The sharp-eyed contemporary drama Luna Gale focuses on Caroline, a social worker who must decide whether a hospitalized child should be given back to her recovering teenage meth addicts parents or the infant's grandmother, a religious evangelist. Caught in the middle of a much larger fight, her decisions about the child's welfare dredge up a secretive past and further ignite the conflict. The Chicago Tribune hailed the play as "excellent and intensely involving," and the Sun-Times agreed, calling it "provocative and impassioned." Now Seattle Repertory Theatre presents this heartbreaking and unforgettable tale from Pulitzer nominee Rebecca Gilman at Stages Repertory Theatre in Houston.
Based on the 1962 John Ford film starring James Stewart, Lee Marvin and John Wayne, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance brings a rip-roaring Western tale to the stage.

There, he finds new purpose thanks to the love of a local woman. But will that be enough to save him from the vicious outlaw who wants to bury him six feet underground? You'll have to make your way to Stages Repertory Theatre in Houston to find out for yourself.
