Pop icon Cyndi Lauper made history as the first solo woman ever to receive the Tony for Best Score thanks to her contributions to Broadway's high-heeled hit, "Kinky Boots". The winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, "Kinky Boots" tells the story (based on actual events) of Charlie Price, who has inherited his father's nearly bankrupt shoe factory. Trying to live up to his father's legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, a fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible. Along the way, Lola helps Charlie become the man he's meant to be. Featuring direction and Tony-winning choreography by Jerry Mitchell ("Legally Blonde", "Hairspray") and a spectacularly uplifting book by four-time Tony winner Harvey Fierstein ("La Cage aux Folles"), this red-hot musical smash can be enjoyed at the Jones Hall for the Performing Arts in Houston.

"Fetch Clay, Make Man" tells the fascinating story of the unlikely friendship between boxer Muhammad Ali and actor Stepin Fetchit. Set mostly during the mid-'60s, the young, vibrant Ali (then known as Cassius Clay) is winning bouts in the boxing ring and arguments outside of it about the dignity of African-Americans.

Few composers have drawn as much literal inspiration from their childhood home as the American maverick Charles Ives, whose music has become a special project of award-winning pianist Jeremy Denk. In this imaginative outing, Denk, violinist Stefan Jackiw and members of Houston Chamber Choir explore inspiration and Ives' unparalleled invention, interweaving the original hymns, patriotic songs and marches, performed by a quartet of singers, with the wildly imaginative sonatas of Ives that those songs inspired. "Charles Ives's America: Hymns, Songs, Sonatas" was praised by "The New York Times", which wrote, "Mr. Denk's playing exuded affinity for Ives and vivid imagination. Mr. Jackiw, deftly balancing fervor and elegance, beautiful tone and earthy colorings, proved a comparably inspired Ivesian." This special concert from Da Camera of Houston takes the stage at Zilkha Hall's Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. [less-]
