Carrie the Musical

Broadway Performing Arts Studio - Carrie

Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she's an outcast who's bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she's at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie's just discovered she's got a special power, and if pushed too far, she's not afraid to use it...

Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, Carrie the Musical is set in the small town of Chamberlain, Maine featuring a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose). © R&H TheatricalsRead more

The Catastrophic Theatre

Tamarie's Merry Evening of Mistakes and Regrets

World Premiere - Directed and choreographed by Tamarie Cooper

Tamarie Cooper and friends are mixing up their usual musical formula, with a brand-new cabaret of sorts - filtered, of course, through Cooper's weird and wacky brain. Presented in Matchbox 3 with cabaret seating, Tamarie's Merry Evening of Mistakes and Regrets will take the audience on a wild ride featuring youthful folly, heartache, unfortunate bedfellows, blunders, errors in judgment, crushed dreams, a miserable clown, dying swans, Judy Garland covers, and songs about cocktails and a sex act in a van with a lead singer of a punk rock band gone horribly wrong. Great and terrible times brilliantly and hilariously brought to life by Tamarie and her talented motley crew: Ronnie BlaineKyle SturdivantGreg Dean, and company.Read more

Life X 3

Dirt Dogs Theater - Life X 3

BY YASMINA REZA, TRANSLATED BY CHRISTOPHER HAMPTON
DIRECTED BY TREVOR B. CONE

From the award-winning playwright of Art and God of Carnage comes a witty and acerbic view of how the simplest and most random of events can change the outcomes in life. Henry and Sonia are planning a dinner party for Henry’s influential co-worker Hubert and his wife Inez. When the dinner guests arrive on the wrong night, Henry and Sonia are forced to receive them with no warning, no food, and an unpredictable six-year-old who won’t go to sleep. Henry has just one shot at getting Hubert to recommend his longed-for promotion. Or might he have two; or even three?Read more

Lone Star Feminist

Houston Fringe Festival - Lone Star Feminist

Houston Fringe Festival

Lone Star Feminist

Written and Performed by Andrea Baldwin

Says Andrea Baldwin: "I am Texan. I am Black. I am a Feminist. To be one or two of these things can cause slight disruption. To be all of them can cause massive controversy."

Lone Star Feminist explores the realization of the above identities through multiple notable icons in regional history. This performance interweaves both relational, para-social, spiritual, and professional experiences that give voice to a specific demographic and courage to the performer to claim and re claim again identities embedded in race, gender, and regional discourse.Read more

Better on the Outside; Remembering the Missing

Houston Fringe Festival - Remembering

This program features recent work by two Houston independent choreographers/art-makers. Better on the Outside, by Daniela Antelo and Brenda Cruz-Wolf, is dance-for-film that features 90-yard pieces of pink fabric in which dancers move in and out of. An industrial setting magnifies the geometry created by both fabric and dancers. Lori Yuill's Remembering the Missing explores the intersection between memory and sensation.  Where do we store our memories and how do we access them (or how do they access us)?  Can we call up those sensations at will and what new territory will be revealed by putting them into action. Remembering the Missing is conceived and directed by Lori Yuill and performed by Daniela Antelo, Miranda Tadlock, jhon r. stronks and Lori Yuill. Read more
