Houston Monday, September 24 Events

Check out what there is to do in Houston this summer on our Houston Attractions Guide.

Houston Ballet - The Four Seasons, Petite Mort. Houston events at the Wortham Center. Choreographed to one of the most beloved works in classical music, Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, it's a poignant narrative on the passage of time. A world premiere presented with William Forsythe’s In the middle, somewhat elevated, famed for its high attitude and explosive movement, and Jiří Kylián's aggressive Petite Mort, this is classic ballet at its most evocative. Call 713-522-5538 for more info. Event ID:9/30

The Four Seasons. Presented by the Houston Ballet. Call 713-227-2787 for more info. Event ID: 9/30

Stages Theatre - Souvenir. Comedy offers an affectionate portrait of Jenkins, a music-loving socialite whose charity concerts earned her a cult following in New York in the 1930s and '40s, culminating in a sold-out concert at Carnegie Hall. Genuinely devoted to "her art," Jenkins was apparently oblivious to the appalling sounds she produced, and the fact that her "fans" attended for laughs, not musical excellence. Houston events at Stages Theatre, 3201 Allen Parkway. Call 713-527-0123 for more info. Event ID:9/30

Stages Theatre - Late Nite Catechism. Sit up straight, spit out your gum and be quiet – or pay the price! This riotously funny international hit comedy takes audiences back to their school days with a show that’s part interactive catechism class, part stand-up comedy routine. Houston events at Stages Theatre, 3201 Allen Parkway. Call 713-527-0123 for more info. Event ID:9/30
