    50% Off Tickets to Kendrick Scott's Oracle
    Valid Dates: 1/23/15 10:09 AM - 3/7/15 8:00 PM
    venue / Wortham Theater Center    district / Theater

    You'll never be able to see Picasso paint or Ella scat but you can see Kendrick Scott drum. Well, maybe "drum" is too modest a word for the endlessly inventive activity Scott engages in, creating an astonishing variety of sounds and rhythms from behind his kit. There are solid reasons why The Washington Post called this Houston native "a true virtuoso" and The New York Times named him a "Drummer Whose Time is Now." Experience them all firsthand when Kendrick Scott's Oracle ensemble plays the Da Camera of Houston series. The group features fellow Houston native Mike Moreno on guitar, saxophonist John Ellis, pianist Taylor Eigsti and bassist Joe Sanders. Their latest album, Conviction, has received rapturous reviews with JazzTimes declaring it "a wondrous achievement." Share in the wonder live when Kendrick Scott's Oracle plays the Cullen Theater. Performance on March 7. Purchase tickets.

    venue / Wortham Theater Center    district / Theater

    Many dance companies claim to "break the rules," but only Compagnie Käfig seems to defy the laws of physics.

Elegantly combining dare-devilish circus skills, street-dance, martial arts, hip-hop and astonishing digital projections, Compagnie Käfig creates pieces that are, in the words of The Boston Globe, "simply jaw-dropping." Let yourself be amazed by the Compagnie's incredible pace, complex rhythm and truly remarkable athleticism when its latest show, Correria Agwa, comes to the Wortham Theater Center on April 17.

    50% Off Tickets to Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire
    Valid Dates: 3/3/15 8:41 AM
    venue / Wortham Theater Center    district / Theater

    Originally produced on Broadway, Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1948. Three years later, the movie adaptation won four Academy Awards. People can't get enough of the story set during a steamy summer in New Orleans' French Quarter, where a vulnerable Blanche DuBois seeks shelter at the apartment of her pregnant sister Stella and Stella's husband Stanley. Now you can see the drama unfold in a vibrant new take from the Scottish Ballet at Houston's Brown Theater. With a jazz-inspired score and vintage-style costumes, this production uses 30 dancers to tell the story of fragile Blanche and brutish Stanley -- and the tensions that escalate when the two are left alone in the house after Stella heads to the hospital to give birth. Performance on May 15. Purchase tickets.
