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!
