The legend. The icon. The Voice. Frank Sinatra defined an entire generation of cool, and he did it His Way. Step back in time as Houston favorite Tony DeSare, one of today’s leading Sinatra interpreters, recreates the Rat Pack swagger and timeless magic of Ol’ Blue Eyes himself, delivering showstoppers like Come Fly with Me, It Was a Very Good Year and New York, New York. This weekend at Jones Hall for the Performing Arts with the Houston Pops.

The Color Purple the 2016 Tony Award® winner for Best Musical Revival, makes its way to Houston this weekend. Hailed as “a direct hit to the heart”, said the Hollywood Reporter, this joyous now American classic about a young woman’s journey to love and triumph in the America's deep South has conquered Broadway in an all-new “re-conceived production that is a glory to behold”, said The New York Times. This weekend at Hobby Center.

NFL Post Football Wildcard Round

4. Houston Texans vs. 5. Buffalo Bills
Houston became locked into this seed before it even took the field against Tennessee in Week 17, and Buffalo has been locked into the No. 5 spot since Week 16. This should be a closely contested wild-card game in Houston, with Deshaun Watson facing the Bills' stingy defense.
