This truly spectacular show not only features amazing feats of strength, agility and flexibility from the skilled performers of this world-famous Chinese troupe -- but you may be more than pleasantly surprised by the company's display of sly humor, dazzling color and great live music. Drawing on more than 2,000 years of tradition and 50 years of performing, the Peking Acrobats create a true cirque-style carnival of dance, gymnastics, contortion, balancing, juggling and cycling that's gained them worldwide fame -- including an appearance in the hit movie Ocean's 11.

I adore David Sedaris and had been dying to see him for years. Unfortunately, living in Austin for many of those years, his talks sold out in a heartbeat to State Theater members before the public could get their hands on them, so I was ecstatic to find this deal and go to the show.
I took my first editions of Dress Your Family... & When You Are Engulfed in Flames with me on the off chance I might get them signed. Lucky me! David was in the signing books! Meeting him was truly one of the coolest things ever.
The show itself was, as expected, simultaneously hilarious, heart-warming, disgustingly entertaining and enlightening. The HSPVA jazz band had played in the lobby during the signing and he loved it so much he had all the kids come on stage where he introduced them and praised them. It was a sweet moment.
The whole show was show fantastic and I wish it had gone on for another hour. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for his next appearance.

David Sedaris, an SPA favorite, returns to Houston to dish out his trademark satire in hilarious doses, reading from new and unpublished works. Sedaris slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness with social critiques that have made him one of America’s preeminent humor writers. Best-selling author, playwright, and often heard on This American Life on Public Radio International, “David Sedaris just may be the funniest man alive,” says Time Out New York.
