Big Fish

book by John August, music & lyrics by Andrew Lippa, based on the novel by Daniel Wallace and the film by John August
May 18 - June 26 2016

REGIONAL PREMIERE

Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed Columbia Pictures film directed by Tim Burton, Big Fish is the extraordinary tale of Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to the fullest…and then some! Edward's incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – except, perhaps, his pragmatic son Will. But as Will prepares for the birth of his own son, he is determined to find the real-life truth behind his father’s epic "fish stories".

Recommended for ages 12 and up. The equivalent movie rating would be PG-13.

Shear Madness

By Paul Portner, Adapted by Marilyn Abrams and Bruce Jordan
July 13 - August 21 2016

The smash hit comedy whodunit comes to Stages, with special guest star Denise Fennell of the Late Nite Catechism series!

In this hilarious and hair-raising beauty parlor puzzler, the audience acts as the evening’s “Shearlock Holmes”, combing through clues, questioning suspects and trying to solve the murder of a renowned pianist who lived above Houston’s hottest hair salon. New clues and up to the minute improvisation deliver a different show every night! Voted “Best Comedy of the Year” seven times by the Boston Globe and named “Best Play of the Year” by both the Chicago Sun-Times and the Philadelphia Enquirer, Shear Madness holds the Guinness World Record for longest-running U.S. play.

De Kus (The Kiss)

By Ger Thijs, Translated by Paul Evans
October 12 - October 30 2016

REGIONAL PREMIERE

Stages Artistic Director Kenn McLaughlin directed the U.S. Premiere of The Kiss in 2015 at Upstream Theater in St. Louis, where it was named one of the Top 10 Shows of 2015.  Now his acclaimed production comes to Houston.

In The Kiss, two troubled souls cross paths: an apprehensive housewife facing a difficult diagnosis and a disillusioned comedian grappling with despair. This chance encounter leads them to reflect on their lives as they have been, as they might have been, and as they might yet be.

Recommended for mature audiences.

My Mañana Comes

By Elizabeth Irwin
February 15 - March 05 2017

REGIONAL PREMIERE

A kinetic powerhouse of a play, My Mañana Comes asks what it really takes to fulfill the American Dream today. Just beyond the elegant dining room of a five-star Manhattan restaurant, four busboys trade jokes and shifts, pray for tips, and work to escape their dingy back-of-house grind. When a change in management upsets the delicate balance they’ve achieved, each man must decide how far he will go in pursuit of his own dream for a better tomorrow.

Luna Gale

By Rebecca Gilman
May 10 - May 28 2017

REGIONAL PREMIERE

Award-winning playwright Rebecca Gilman (Dollhouse) explores the deeply human complexity at the heart of a seemingly clear-cut custody case. 

Caroline, a veteran social worker, is pushed to extremes as she fights to reunite two recovering teenage meth addicts with their infant daughter. When family history and religious devotion complicate what had seemed like an obvious solution, faith meets doubt and the best intentions meet reality as the people who care about baby Luna struggle to protect her future.

The beloved film and literary classic comes to the stage in a gripping tale of love, hope and revenge in the lawless Wild West.
