Full of onstage sparkle and backstage drama, the Tony and Academy Award-winning hit musical Dreamgirls tells the rags-to-riches tale of a fictional 1960s Motown girl group based on the stories of real-life acts like The Supremes and The Shirelles. Jam packed with great R&B music, punctuated by showstopping hits like "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" and "One Night Only," this now-classic show pulls back the curtain on the emotional struggles that come along with fame and fortune -- and does so with plenty of soulful style. This sophisticated staging of Dreamgirls is under the stars at The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts.

Journey to ancient Egypt while sitting under the stars at Houston's Obsidian Theater. Silicon Valley Shakespeare performs Antony and Cleopatra, the story of one of the most famous couples in history and their tempestuous, doomed love affair. They were two of the greatest lovers to ever walk the earth, but they were also political figures, and the pressures and the demands of their public life eventually tore them apart. Cleopatra is one of Shakespeare's most complex female roles, all too human underneath the tragic grandeur. Allow the Queen of Egypt to rule your heart for an evening.
Gioachino Rossini's delightfully funny story of young love unfolds in Spain and finds the dashing Count Almaviva striving to win the love of the lovely young Rosina.

With a triumphant overture made famous through other mediums -- think Bugs Bunny -- The Barber of Seville appeals to both opera newbies and aficionados. A top-notch cast sails through the score's bel canto glories, thrilling the audience with their portrayals of characters that are just as vivid today as when they first took the stage.

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.
Brian Friel's Dancing at Lughnasa took the theater world by storm when it debuted, winning the 1992 Tony Award for Best Play.

But after they welcome their frail missionary brother home from Uganda, several intersecting events threaten to irreparably burst the Mundy women's fragile bubble of happiness.
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.

The Chicago Tribune hailed the play as "excellent and intensely involving," and the Sun-Times agreed, calling it "provocative and impassioned."

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?
