2008 Chinese New Year Festivals in Houston

Masquerade Theatre - The Scarlet Pimpernel. Houston events at the Hobby Center, 800 Bagby. The Scarlet Pimpernel is a musical by composer Frank Wildhorn and lyricist Nan Knighton, based on the novel of the same name by Baroness Orczy. The show is set in England and France during the Reign of Terror of the French Revolution. The story is a precursor to the spy fiction and the superhero genres, where a hero hides under a mild-mannered alias. Call 713-861-7045 for tickets. Event ID: 2/24

Alley Theatre - The Lieutenant of Inishmore. The Lieutenant of Inishmore revolves around a group of terrorists in a radical IRA splinter group and their ruthless (and cat-loving) leader “Mad Padraic.” When Padraic’s beloved cat is found dead, the death must be concealed before Padraic returns from a stint of violence. What follows are a series of savagely funny events that are both shocking and surprising. Houston events at Alley Theatre, 615 Texas. Call 713-228-8421 for more info. Event ID:2/24

Houston Fine Arts Events

Houston events at Museum of Fine Arts, 1001 Bissonnet. Call 713-639-7300 for more info. Event ID:5/4

Where Clouds Disperse: Ink Paintings by Suh Se-ok.  Over his 40-year career, Suh Se-ok has incorporated his traditional training with his Modernist sensibility to create dynamic works that embody his artistic vision.

Location: Museum of Fine Arts, 1001 Bissonnet. Call 713-639-7300 for more info.

Genome: The Secret of How Life Works. Have you ever wondered what you have in common with a potato? How genes affect growth and aging, or what your future children might look like? Stop wondering and start exploring! Scientists have mapped the human genome – a person’s entire set of genes. Genes are the secret codes, or recipes that make us who we are and that influence who we might become. Houston events at Health Museum, 1515 Hermann Drive. Call 713-521-1515 for more info.
