Jam-packed with big, flashy numbers like "Luck Be a Lady" and "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat," it's no surprise Time magazine pronounced Guys and Dolls "the greatest of all American musicals." This Tony-winning tale is set in New York City during the swinging 1940s, where Nathan Detroit turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for the cash to float the biggest craps game in town. When dolls -- especially a straitlaced missionary named Sarah Brown -- get involved, the term "high stakes" applies to both love and money. This dynamic and modern production of the beloved classic comes to Houston's Hobby Center for the Performing Arts.
Step into an enchanted world with Disney's Beauty and the Beast, the international sensation that has been seen and loved by more than 35 million people worldwide. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated film, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs from the movie, plus new songs just for the musical. This is the story of Belle, a young woman with big dreams in a small village. When her father doesn't return from a trip, she goes looking for him and meets the Beast, who is really a prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will become a prince again. But time is running out -- if the Beast doesn't learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
Daphne du Maurier's short story, also the basis for Alfred Hitchcock's classic film, is adapted by Conor McPherson in this gripping, unsettling and moving look at human relationships in the face of chaos. In an isolated house, strangers Nat and Diane take shelter from relentless masses of attacking birds. They find relative sanctuary, but not comfort or peace. There's no electricity, little food and a nearby neighbor may still be alive and watching them. Another refugee, the young and attractive Julia, arrives with some news of the outside world, but her presence also brings discord. Catch The Birds at Houston's Theatre Suburbia.
Travel back in time - but not that far - as David and a giant named Goliath meet in a classic showdown, re-cast wild-west style. The famous story gives "slinger" a whole new meaning as two champions collide in David, the Best Slinger in the West at A.D. Players Theater in Houston.
A taut Broadway hit written by Aaron Sorkin, A Few Good Men focuses on the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover-up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial. Directed by Debra Schultz, see A Few Good Men at Stageworks Theatre in Houston. The New York Daily News called the show "Enormously entertaining," while Time magazine lauded it for "Plenty of wise cracking humor and suspense" and the New York Post declared it "Fresh and adroitly updated and conditioned to our time and socio-political climate."
A musical that was originally intended to be a gender-swapped retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, I Love You Because grew into its own unique and hysterical modern-day love story. The show, which has been warmly described by The New York Times as "terrific, refreshing fun," is an endearing romantic comedy that encourages you to re-examine your ideas about love in the age of dating apps. Enjoy this modern musical love story at Houston's Studio 101.
What really happens after "happily ever after?" Stephen Sondheim's Into The Woods answers that question, skillfully interweaving several classic fairy tales into one epic story that goes beyond the happy endings to show what happens when a fairy-tale world gets real. This modern twist on the Brothers Grimm brings together Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (of beanstalk fame), Rapunzel and more. The beloved storybook characters take on startling complexity as they discover that wishes always come with a price. Witches, wolves, giants and mysterious strangers force the heroes to face the music and their future in a world where everything doesn't always end happily. Be sure to catch this humorous and heartfelt romp through the woods, featuring such unforgettable songs as "No One Is Alone," "Children Will Listen" and "Giants in the Sky," when Into The Woods comes to Houston's Playhouse 1960.
Before it became a feature film starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan, The Last Five Years was a stirring stage musical that was hailed as one of the 10 best shows of 2001 by TIME magazine. Told through inventive and heartrending songs, The Last Five Years is a two-person show that navigates the ups and downs of a marriage. There is, however, a twist: The man relives the relationship from beginning to end, while the woman relates their story in reverse. The two characters' emotional timelines converge only once -- at their wedding in the middle of the show. Written by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown (Parade), this is the story of a couple's five-year relationship, from the thrilling pangs of new love to their painful final separation. And now Houston's Obsidian Theater presents the bittersweet song cycle.
