  • Let The Right One in comes to Houston's Alley Theatre
    Alley Theatre presents the internationally acclaimed production
    Let the Right One In
    presented by the National Theatre of Scotland.
    February 22 and continues through March 19, 2017 in the Hubbard Theatre.

    From John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, the director and playwright of 2016’s spectacular smash Harry Potter and the Cursed Child comes this spellbinding piece of theatrical storytelling.

    Supernatural thriller Let the Right One In is a brutal and tender vampire myth told through the turbulence of a coming-of-age romance.

    Oskar, a lonely boy from a broken home, is bullied at school and longing for friendship. Eli, the young girl who moves in next door, doesn’t attend school and rarely leaves home.

  • Trevor presented by Catastrophic Theatre
    The Catastrophic Theatre presents
    Trevor
    by Nick Jones
    February 10th – March 4th, 2017.

    Presented @ The MATCH, 3400 Main Street.

    “Plays like Sylvia and Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo have found humor in animals speaking like humans. But in Trevor, the laughs (and there are many) have an edge. Imagine the frustration of not being able to accurately communicate with the person closest to you, the one you depend on most. It’s the kind of thing that happens on an emotional level in human relationships all the time, but by using this theatrical conceit, the stakes heighten.”
    —Jason Zinoman, The New York Times

    Inspired by the true story of a woman attacked by a 200-pound pet chimpanzee, Trevor finds pathos, poignancy and, perhaps surprisingly, riotous humor by seeing the world through the animal’s eyes.

    The play is also a biting satire of show business since Trevor, the chimpanzee, once starred on stage and screen (including a commercial with ’80s icon Morgan Fairchild) and now overestimates how much the human world might be clamoring for his comeback.

  • Classical Theatre Presents The Ghost Sonata
    Classical Theatre Company presents Strindberg’s rarely produced final play, the supernatural drama,
    The Ghost Sonata
    ny August Strindberg
    February 8 – February 26, 2017.


    Following 2012’s production of Miss Julie, Classical Theatre Company will produce its second play by the Swedish great August Strindberg in The Ghost Sonata.

    This dark examination of family was originally produced in 1908 and has disturbed audiences ever since.

    “Strindberg had a very unhappy family life – particularly his childhood. This play was his attempt to exorcise those ghosts through this supernatural drama,” says CTC chief John Johnston. “We’re excited to bring this rarely produced play to our Houston audiences. We’ve done a good job over the years in exposing our audiences to age-old plays that they’ve never seen on stage before. Most theatergoers are familiar with his other plays like Miss Julie, The Father, or A Dream Play, but The Ghost Sonata was his last great play, and perhaps his most overlooked.”

    A.D. Players presents
    To Kill A Mockingbird
    Feb 12-March 5th, 2017


    Harper Lee’s timeless story contrasts the innocence of childhood with darker themes of prejudice and injustice. When Atticus Finch defends a man falsely accused, both intolerance and quiet heroism are exposed in the tiny town of Maycomb.

    A.D. Players, one of Houston’s oldest and largest resident theater companies, has moved its troupe from the Grace Theater to its new 440-seat venue, the Jeannette and L.M. George Theater (George Theater). The Players completed its 39-year run at the 212-seat Grace Theater in December.

Migos, Sean Kingston fracas leads to arrest

LAS VEGAS — A Florida man has been jailed on felony and misdemeanor charges after he fired a shot during a fight between the hip-hop music group Migos and rapper Sean Kingston outside a Las Vegas Strip convention center, police said Wednesday. The gunshot was fired in the air and no one was reported to have been injured during the fracas Tuesday afternoon outside the Sands Expo & Convention Center, Las Vegas police Officer Danny Cordero said. Kingston and the three members of Migos, who perform under the names Quavo, Takeoff and Offset, were not identified as suspects in the case. Mioses Johnson, 28, of West Palm Beach, Florida, was being held at the Clark County jail pending an initial court appearance on charges of felony assault with a weapon and carrying a firearm without a permit, and a misdemeanor count of discharging a gun where persons may be endangered. Jail records didn't indicate if Johnson had an attorney. Johnson was initially detained by event security guards, and a .380-caliber handgun was seized from him before his arrest, the police spokesman said. Cordero identified Johnson as part of a group accompanying Kingston at the venue hosting an expo called Agenda at the same time as the larger MAGIC Las Vegas fashion convention at other event centers around town. The physical confrontation near an outdoor Sands expo center loading dock followed an argument inside stemming from a previous dispute between the two groups, Cordero said. A spokeswoman for the expo center and adjacent Venetian and Palazzo resorts referred questions about the incident to police. Efforts to identify and contact representatives of Kingston and Migos weren't immediately successful. Kingston, who also uses the name Kisean Anderson, was born in Miami and emerged as a musician in Jamaica. Migos are related members of one family from the Atlanta area. Their debut album, Yung Rich Nation, was released in 2015.
