Cowtown turns into ‘Chicago’ for two nights only
It’s one of the longest-running musicals in history, and for good reason: With a terrific score, breathtakingly modern plot and sexy, jazzy style, Chicago is entertaining, thoughtful and hot as hell. But while it’s been around for 40 years, this tour — which includes classic songs (“Cell Block Tango,” “All That Jazz,” “The Old Razzle Dazzle”) and iconic choreography — will only be at Bass Hall for two nights. Don’t miss out!

It opens this weekend and runs through Memorial Day. Get thee downe there anon!

Dixie Longate keeps everything fresh with Tupperware Party
The 1970s cultural phenom known as the Tupperware Party didn’t actually go anywhere — it’s still around, only it’s moved from the living room to the stage. Dixie Longate (drag queen Kris Anderson) hosts a real Tupperware party (expect to leave with storage for your leftovers!) with a large dash of sassy in the return of her comedy show to the intimate McDavid Studio. She’s settling in for a nearly month-long run, but it shouldn’t matter too much whether you see it opening night or later in the run — she has a way of keeping things fresh.
