On Saturday, March 28, 2015, co-chairs Vivian Wise and Sandra Porter will host HOLLYWOOD AND VINE, a night of revelry and delight supporting Stages Repertory Theatre. One of the very first events to be held at the dazzling new venue The Astorian, the evening celebrates the glamour and excitement of the early days of Hollywood in a setting that must be seen to be believed!

HOLLYWOOD AND VINE includes dinner, dancing, and stellar entertainment, as well as admission to THE AFTER-PARTY—IN TECHNICOLOR! The spectacular auction will feature an array of crave-worthy items, including jewelry, home accessories, art, travel and more. And to add the perfect touch of artistic flair, you’ll be able to film, photograph and/or star in your own movie scenes, created on one of our custom black-and-white sets!

Steadfast Stages supporter Mario Ariza, Chief Operating Officer of Houston First, is set to receive the seventh annual Theodore Award for Visionary Leadership in honor of his vital role in helping Stages achieve its longtime goal of purchasing its home at 3201 Allen Parkway. This fun, fabulous evening will be a great tribute to his extraordinary work on behalf of Stages.

Our annual gala and auction is a vital source of revenue for Stages’ artistic, education and community programs. Stages raises a substantial portion of its annual operating budget through the gala, while keeping expenses reasonable. Last year’s gala helped launch our most ambitious and successful season to date, and with your continued support we are poised to reach new heights!

Reserve your table/seat now, or email gala@stagestheatre.com for additional information.

Stupid Fucking Bird

by Aaron Posner, sort of adapted from 'The Seagull' by Anton Chekhov
March 18 - April 12 2015

REGIONAL PREMIERE

Nominee: Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award, eight Helen Hayes Awards

Love, death, beauty, despair and one unfortunate seagull collide in this unabashedly provocative riff on Chekhov’s classic. Con is a burgeoning playwright in love with his ingénue; his mother, an aging actress, is involved with a famous novelist; the novelist, in turn, is increasingly enchanted with Con’s girlfriend; and everyone else suffers on the sidelines. Chekhov’s characters still ruminate on love, revolution and the pursuit of happiness, but this time convention gets shot to hell.

FOR MATURE AUDIENCES. This show contains nudity, strong language and adult situations. The equivalent movie rating would be 'R'.

The Spiritualist

by Robert Ford
April 29 - May 24 2015

REGIONAL PREMIERE

Rosemary Dunn is an English widow who cooks for the school lunch service and communes with the spirits of dead composers (Liszt is her favorite). When a crusading American newspaperman tries to unmask her as a fraud, the so-called “spiritualist” channels a famous rock star to prove that great music is eternal! A comic drama inspired by true events, The Spiritualist explores the tensions between art and commerce, fact and faith.

Directed by Seth Gordon
