Houston Family Arts Center (HFAC) is proud to present the Off-Broadway hit West Moon Street, Rob Urbinati’s comedy adapted from Oscar Wilde’s short story “Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime” weekends through August 15.
West Moon Street tells the tale of young Lord Arthur (Joshua Clark), who’s on cloud nine—he’s just down from Oxford and engaged to be married to the appropriately aristocratic Sybil (Melissa Kihneman). His naïve happiness is smashed to smithereens by an evening spent at the residence of his confidante Lady Windermere (Stephanie Thaine), at which a mysterious palm-reader Mr. Podgers (J. Blanchard) foretells a deadly turn of events.
Wilde’s original is filled with wit and subtly subversive humor. Urbinati’s adaptation takes Wilde’s lead and runs with it, making clear things that would have been taboo in Oscar’s day and subtly suggesting things that are still subversive today.
West Moon Street is directed by Lisa Garza at the HFAC Garza Mainstage, a beautifully designed, 150-seat, intimate theatre equipped with state-of-the-art lighting and sound equipment, located at 10760 Grant Rd., Houston, TX 77070. Parking is free. Enjoy a hilarious comedy that will have you laughing all night long!
Tickets are just $16 for adults, $14 for seniors, and $12 for students/children. Purchase tickets online at www.houstonfac.com. For more info or group ticket sales, call 281-685-6374.
Love & Marriage Texas Style is a new comedy very loosely based on “Billy Bob” Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, and is set in Tomball in 1910. This new look at that age-old love-struggle has more twists and turns than a trail left by a maverick steer that’s been munching loco weed…and is spoken in good ol’ Texanese palaver! (Where else will you hear such endearments as “She’s as purty a sight as a Jersey heifer in a field o’ bluebonnets!”?)
This world premiere, written and directed by local Houston playwright Elaine Edstrom, opens Friday, May 7 and runs weekends through Saturday, May 29. Love & Marriage Texas Style will be the inaugural show for the new Houston Family Arts Center (HFAC) Garza Mainstage – a 151 seat state of the art theatre located at 10760 Grant Road, Houston TX 77070.
Tickets are just $16 for adults, $14 for seniors, and $12 for students/children. Special discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. Purchase tickets online at www.houstonfac.com. For more info or group ticket sales, call 281-685-6374.
