Halston

Sunday, Apr 28, 2019 at 1:30 PM - English

Roy Halston Frowick was America's first celebrity designer. His life story is a dramatic and visually outstanding tale of the transition from classic Hollywood elegance to the extravagant wild nightlife of the 1970s. His ideas perfectly encapsulated the times, and his creations made him the regular stylist for stars. Halston flew high but gambled his empire on an escalating hedonistic lifestyle and a series of impulsive decisions during a period that started as one long party and ended up spinning out of control. Frédéric Tcheng tells the story with style, originality and plenty of exuberance just like Halston would have wanted.

Always Patsy Cline by Ted Swindley

Sunday, Apr 28, 2019 at 2:00 PM - English

The Wick Theatre is delighted to present Always...Patsy Cline, based on the true story of legendary country artist Patsy Cline's friendship with Houston housewife, Louise Seger. Tickets are $75-$85, website or call the box office.

Louise Seger met her idol in 1961, when Cline went to Houston for a show. Louis arrived early and, by coincidence, met Cline who was traveling alone. They immediately struck up a friendship and over a pot of strong coffee, the women chatted about their common concerns. When Cline left for Dallas, Louise never expected to hear from her idol again. But, a pen-pal relationship followed and provides much of the show's plot.

Show more >>

The play focuses on the fateful evening in 1963 at Houston's Esquire Ballroom when Louis hears of Cline's death in a plane crash. Louis supplies a narrative while Cline floats in and out of the set singing tunes that made her famous Anytime, Walkin' After Midnight, She's Got You, Sweet Dreams, and Crazy to name a few. This brilliant show offers fans a chance to look back, while giving new fans an idea of what experiencing Patsy Cline was like and what she meant to her original fans.

The show stars Terri Dixon and Lourelene Snedeker and is directed by Dom Ruggiero, with musical direction by Caryl Fantel.
