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.
