I hope you’ll join me for the first-ever edition of Houston ArtsWeek, Sunday 4-5 p.m. on NewsRadio 740 KTRH. We have a terrific lineup!
BLAST FROM THE PAST
Matthew Dirst, artistic director of Ars Lyrica, joins us from a recent “house concert,” which might be a rare chance to hear Baroque chamber music actually performed in a chamber. Matthew talks about the ensembles new CD and plans for an exciting new Ars Lyrica season.
THE EVITA ENIGMA
We sit down with Rebekah Dahl and Luther Chakurian, who star as Eva Peron and Che Guevara (sort of) in Masquerade Theatre’s current production of “Evita” in Zilkha Hall at the Hobby Center. In particular, we want to know how Rebekah makes us care about a political leader who had a lot not to like.
SUMMER IS MILLER TIME
Cissy Segal Davis joins us to talk about Miller Outdoor Theatre, which remains a Houston summertime treasure despite its effort to extend the season deep into spring and fall – when the weather is mostly nicer anyway. How many other cities can most boast this much entertainment absolutely free. Uh, none.
