Though he was strictly a "panpipes and lyres" kind of guy, Plato was spot on about music: "Music," he said, "gives ... wings to the mind, flight to the imagination." Ars Lyrica Houston, the acclaimed ensemble dedicated to music of the 17th and 18th centuries, explores the connection between flights of notes and aerial acrobatics in its latest concert, Flying High. French and Italian baroque chamber works animate this season opener, including G. F. Handel's evocative Tra le fiamme featuring French-Italian soprano Céline Ricci and viola da gambist Mary Springfels. Escape gravity's pull -- in your imagination at least -- during this airy musical meditation at Zilkha Hall at The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. Learn More

So, it just so happened that my girlfriend was talking about attending more plays, seeing as how i'm not that cultured. So. One of her all-time favorites just so happened to be Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Perfect. We went out and had some wine, then went to the theatre. If it would've been a play more than a musical, I think I would've had a much better time.
Otherwise, good production! I enjoyed it!!

The evening was wonderful. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical at first with the seats being in the upper level, however they were wonderful. The performance was outstanding. It was our first time to visit this company's event but it wont be...continued
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels follows two con men living on the French Riviera and, of course….a dame. A hilarious battle of cons ensues, that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end.
The production contains adult humor, parental discretion is advised.
About the Ticket Supplier: Masquerade TheatreEstablished in 1996 by Founding Artistic Director Phillip Duggins, The Masquerade Theatre operated as a sole proprietorship until July 2001 when it obtained non-profit status. The Masquerade Theatre currently performs at Zilkha Hall in The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Houston, as well as at Ovations. Masquerade's office and rehearsal space is currently located at 3558 East TC Jester in the Heights, a diverse economic area in one of Houston's older neighborhoods.
It began as a mixed-venue professional theatre providing a variety of theatrical productions including comedies, dramas, and musicals. Due to the popularity of musicals and increasing requests from patrons, a decision was made in its second season to become purely a musical theatre. Since that time the theatre's audience has grown significantly and demand for seats has resulted in Masquerade becoming the full-time resident company in Zilkha Hall, part of The Hobby Center, in downtown Houston.
The theatre's mission encompasses arts and culture, education, youth development, and community enhancement. Specifically, Masquerade's mission is dedicated to a) providing quality, professional musical productions for theatre patrons in the Houston metropolitan area; b) recruiting and retaining professional actors and actresses in the Houston area; c) maintaining a forum for development of youth talented in musical theatre; and d) reaching out to the youth in the community who might not otherwise experience the enjoyment of the performing arts. One of the theatre's founding principles is that it will hire highly talented actors from the local area so that actors, musicians and stage crews can develop their careers in Houston, rather than having to relocate to New York in order to pursue a career in musical theatre. It is Houston's only resident musical theatre employing artists exclusively from the local area. Masquerade also raises awareness and resources for the benefit of other charities by dedicating to them a portion of net proceeds at selected shows. For example, The Masquerade Tribble School of Professional Musical Theatre recently performed The Music Man and contributed 40% of its net proceeds to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The resident company also recently staged performances of Irving Berlin's The Melody Lingers On in cooperation with the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, attracting contributions for the Fund of approximately $12,000. The company believe that using its actors' talents in this manner provides a clear and satisfying way to demonstrate that it takes its mission to enhance the community very seriously.
The theatre has a 17-member Board of Directors which consists of a diverse group of individuals consisting of CPAs, doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, bankers and other professionals that understand the importance of their fiduciary responsibility to the public in operating a non-profit organization.
