This glam rock musical phenomenon surrounds a transgendered East German rock singer named Hedwig and her band, The Angry Inch. Through an electrifying rock score by Stephen Trask and a wickedly hilarious book by John Cameron Mitchell, Hedwig enchants her audience with the gritty details of her life. She recalls growing up in East Berlin as a "girly boy" named Hansel who undergoes a botched sex-change operation after falling in love with an American G.I. She explains her journey to America, her tumultuous relationship with rock star Tommy Gnosis and her rise to Z-list fame. The infamous musical began its life Off-Broadway, starring book writer John Cameron Mitchell, and went on to gain a cult following through hundreds of subsequent productions in the U.S. and abroad. In 2014, "Hedwig" made its Tony Award-winning Broadway debut. Art Factory's production reunites Factory favorites and last year's stars, Colton Berry and Raven Troup, as Hedwig and Yitzhak, respectively.

The term "knight in shining armor" isn't just for romantic fairy tales. Chivalry and duty are bound together by the masterpieces of European arms and armors from the Medieval and Renaissance ages all the way up to the 1800s. In the Middle Ages, knighthood was closely linked with horsemanship and jousting and was considered high fashion among the nobility of the 15th century. The provocative beauty and exquisite craftsmanship of the armor revealed the figure of the knight, his code of chivalry and his battlefield role. Learn about all this and more when the "Knights in Shining Armor" Exhibit comes to the Houston Museum of Natural Science. See full suits of armor, helmets, corselets, shields, swords and other weaponry in an exhibit exploring the themes of love and war, jousts and tournaments, and historical context. You'll marvel at the still-life ("Natura Morta") armor installation, even as you whisper silent words of thanks for being born in the era of modern-day stretchy pants. Your voucher gains you entry on any date through the exhibit, which is in Houston until May 2018. [less-]

Sarah Palin, the GOP's first female vice-presidential candidate, became a conservative icon and Republican kingmaker. Donna Brazile, the first African-American to head a presidential campaign, went on to lead the Democratic National Committee at a critical juncture in the 2016 campaign.

In this powerful conversation at Cullen Performance Hall in Houston, two of the most respected and outspoken women in American politics examine our increasingly polarized country and the future of the Republican and Democratic parties.
