A heart has suddenly become available for transplant — and the members of St. Patricks Hospital's Heart Transplant Selection Committee have only a matter of minutes to decide which of three patients will receive it.

Watch it all unfold at A.D. Players Theater in Houston. [less-]

"Collected Stories" is a two-character drama that takes an intimate look at the lives of a pair of writers, focusing on their friendship, ambitions, conflicts, rivalries and betrayals. Ruth Steiner, played by Co-Artistic Director Kim Tobin-Lehl, is an established scribe from Greenwich Village in New York. Famous for her short stories, she wants to share her knowledge and passion with the next generation of young and hungry authors. But when Lisa Morrison arrives, Ruth may have got more than she bargained for in this intense and funny play about art and the creative process. "The Hollywood Reporter" says: ”As usual Margulies holds the rich ore of his material up to the light so that it sends beams in every direction … always fluid and lively, the play is thick with ideas, like a stockpot of good stew.” [less-]

"Chicago" has everything that makes a Broadway musical great: sizzling songs, seductive dance numbers and a show-biz story that packs a powerful punch. Set amidst the showy decadence of the 1920s, the longest-running American musical of all time tells the tale of convicted murderers Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly, who'll stop at nothing to get the attention of the press and celebrity attorney Billy Flynn. Their malicious crimes turn them into media darlings, producing a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which could just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids. A smash on Broadway, winning six Tony Awards, and on the big screen, taking home the same number of Academy Awards, this biting satire features the unforgettable songs of Kander and Ebb, including "All That Jazz," "Cell Block Tango" and many more hits. Experience the razzle-dazzle at Jones Hall for the Performing Arts in Houston. [less-]
