It’s a surprisingly Sam Harris-y time to be in Dallas. On Tuesday night, the actor-singer-writer helped open the new ilume Park development on Cedar Springs at a gala fundraiser for the Red Party, benefiting Legacy Counseling Center. Harris charmed the audience, reading from his new memoir, Ham, and even performed a few songs, sounding as clear and powerful as he did when he won the first-ever Star Search contest 30 years ago.
His reign doesn’t end there. Tomorrow in Dallas Voice, we run a review of Ham (preview: It’s hilar!) and in just more than a week, Harris is back for a one-man show at the Kalita Humphreys Theater, courtesy of Uptown Players. In it, he both performs essays from his book and sings numbers. And he’s still pretty easy on the eyes.
I’ve become a fan all over again. You will be, too.
