Cabaret Premiere of Sarah Fleming Walkers New Album ELEVEN OCLOCK NUMBER to be Presented a Photo
Austin Playhouse has announced tickets and cabaret tables are now available for a live “Cabaret Premiere” of Sarah Fleming Walker’s new album Eleven O’Clock Number. 

Review: PRETTY WOMAN at Bass Concert Hall Photo
It's not that PRETTY WOMAN THE MUSICAL is necessarily worthy of a terribly poor review, but it's not worthy of a good one either. Does it get the job done? Is it a musical? Was it executed well? Is the talent up to the task? Yes, to all these. But that's about where the good work ends. There's well directed talent up there on stage, but the book and undistinguished lyrics aren't a big help.
