  • Randy Harrison on the Enduring Power of Cabaret
    March 21, 2016
    Since its premiere on Broadway, Cabaret has become one of the biggest stage hits in modern history, even spawning an Oscar-winning film starring Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey. It isn’t just the incredible music that keeps audiences coming back; the themes of 1930’s Berlin are still relevant. This week, Cabaret will begin its week-long run at the Hobby Center.

  • Spring Forward into Buffalo Bayou
    March 17, 2016
    Cher may be able to turn back time but even she couldn’t stop us from turning our clocks forward an hour this past Sunday.

She spilled the tea on all things drag in Houston. Ryan Bellinghausen: What sets Houston queens apart? Violet S'Arbleu: Different places in the country (and indeed the world) are known for different things: Chicago queens sport some of the wildest makeup and costumes (examples from RuPaul’s Drag...
  • Walk For A Cause
    March 2, 2016
    Helping the community is something we all know we should do more of, but who here hasn’t even considered it since we knew it counted on those pesky college applications? Don’t worry, I am raising my hand on that as well. But you can help raise awareness and money for a cause by doing something as simple as putting one foot in front of the other. This Sunday, the AIDS Foundation Houston, Inc. will be hosting their annual AIDS Walk, presented by Marathon Oil. The 3k walk assists...
