From Goldstar.com

Some plays can be summed up in an image, others a phrase, but only one masterpiece can be summarized with a scream: "Stelllaaa!!!"

     That masterpiece, of course,

is A Streetcar Named Desire.  

     Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer-winning drama, which was famously adapted into a movie starring Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh.

     Set during a steamy summer in New Orleans' French Quarter, a vulnerable Blanche DuBois seeks shelter at the apartment of her pregnant sister Stella and Stella's husband Stanley.

     Fragile Blanche and brutish Stanley immediately clash, and tensions only escalate when the two are left alone in the house after Stella heads to the hospital to give birth.

Cirque du Soleil Michael Jackson

The Immortal Tour Hits The Energy City

Look. If you're a Michael Jackson fan and I think that would be an understatement, you will find this Cirque Du Soleil presentation awe inspiring. If you are over 40-years old it will release memories.

Circue de solie picture Michael Jackson

     It was about 1978, when a group of friends and I were in Baton Rouge, La. when I saw the Jackson's in concert. I was a kid going to the University of New Orleans,La.

     We all were awe struck by the Jackson clan (Michael was with his brothers then) on their concert tour performance.

     The reviews I have seen says this Cirque presentation will bring back those days. The show will hit Houston, Tx. next month, buy tickets now everybody.
     Here is what the Cirque Soleil website says about the show.

     A riveting fusion of visuals, dance, and music, Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour is an electrifying production presented in a rock concert format that combines the excitement and innovation of Michael Jackson’s music and choreography with Cirque du Soleil withunparalleled creativity.

"Singing Pageant of Pop, With a Circus Atmosphere… He probably would have savored this family-friendly extravaganza."

The New York Times

The underpinnings of THE IMMORTAL World Tour are Michael Jackson’s powerful, inspirational music and lyrics—the driving force behind the show—brought to life with extraordinary power and breathless intensity. Through unforgettable performances, the show underscores Michael’s global messages of love, peace and unity.  A live band including some of the same artists who previously worked side by side with Michael, further enhance the excitement and authenticity of the show.

Doubletree Hotel
400 Dallas Street Houston, TX

From Goldstar.com
Named Best Dinner Show in Los Angeles and Denver four years running, The Dinner Detective comes to Houston to serve up a tasty whodunit along with a seated four-course dinner. And since this comic murder mystery is set in the present day, you'll never know whether someone at your table is one of the talented cast of improvisers. In fact, everyone's a suspect -- including you! The evening kicks off with a reception featuring tray-passed hors d'oeuvres, followed by the meal, which includes salad, an entree and dessert. Between courses you can expect plenty of murder, mayhem and hidden clues coming to light as you puzzle through the crime. The top sleuth even wins a prize package at the end of the evening -- not to mention serious bragging

Two Gentlemen of Verona
Directed by Brendon Fox
A romantic, funny comedy, TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA follows two young couples—Proteus and Julia, Valentine and Sylvia—as they navigate falling in love and growing up fast in small-town life and sexy, fast-paced Hollywood.
The 1930s is the perfect setting for a witty look at competitive friends, smart-aleck servants, glamorous starlets, intimidating movie moguls, and of course a dog who just wants to be fed.

Henry IV, Part 1
Directed by Jack Young
The original “Game of Thrones”—after deposing Richard II, the new monarch Henry IV finds England in chaos. His son Prince Hal spends his time in the taverns of London with brigands and drunkards, led by the pot-bellied prankster Falstaff. Their revels are interrupted by rebellions from the north and west, led by Hal’s rival, the gallant Hotspur. The Battle of Shrewsbury looms ahead, and with it, the fate of the House of Lancaster.
