Don't Dress For Dinner  
Classical Theatre Company - Chelsea Market Don't Dress For Dinner
 
Don't Dress for Dinner is the hilarious and stylish sequel to the classic Boeing Boeing. Ten years have passed and the roguish stars of Boeing Boeing, Robert and Bernard, have "settled down." But that doesn't stop the rush of sexy shenanigans, mix-ups and wild coincidences that keep this farce moving from curtain up. Bernard's plan for a rendezvous in the countryside with his mistress takes an unexpected turn when his wife decides to stay in town for a tryst of her own with Robert ... who had supplied Bernard with his alibi. With a cook named Suzette, a lover named Suzanne, a confused friend and a suspicious wife, you have all the ingredients for a truly scrumptious comedic souffle. The Guardian called Don't Dress for Dinner "a near faultless piece of theatrical invention." See The Caduceus Theater Arts Company's production at Classical Theatre @ Chelsea Market in Houston.
   
The Elephant Man  
Stageworks Theatre - The Garza Main Stage The Elephant Man
 
Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play when it debuted on Broadway in 1979, the emotional drama The Elephant Man's strange and moving tale comes to Oceanside Theatre Company. Severely disfigured by a mysterious ailment that transformed his body into a mass of bulbous, twisted flesh so shocking to the eye that he was shunned by Victorian society, Merrick was eventually saved from a life spent on display in a freak show by a young doctor named Frederick Treves. Taken into the physician's care, Merrick became a celebrated fixture of London's social scene ... but with a worsening condition, his dream of becoming "normal" remained forever out of reach. Written by Bernard Pomerance, David Bowie famously portrayed Merrick in the early '80s. See Stageworks Theatre's production of this moving drama in Houston.
