Pianist Jim Brickman performs holiday music

The holidays are as much about music as food — the sounds of the season set the tone for the holidays. And pianist Jim Brickman offers up some of the most soothing and enjoyable of holiday tunes, which he will play in his concert this week at Bass Hall called Comfort & Joy.

DEETS: Bass Performance Hall,

Traditional Christmas panto returns with ‘Sleeping Beauty’

Every year, I like to remind people that holiday traditions can cross international lines, which Theatre Britain celebrates with its annual panto — a family-friendly comedic play that has been popular for more than a century in Merry Olde England. Usually a riff on a fairy tale — this year, The Sleeping Beauty — it contains some cross-dressing, double entendres, singing and even a ghost. There’s something for all ages.
