Looking for a fabulous date night, or perhaps a classy night out with friends? If you’re a Camden resident living in Houston, you will receive an amazing discount on tickets to the newest show at Alley Theatre in Houston. The theatre is proudly presenting the world premiere of Cleo, and it simply can’t be missed!
Written by Lawrence Wright, the play takes audience members back to the Roman set of the film, Cleopatra, in 1962. The captivating story revolves around Elizabeth Taylor and her scandalous romance with co-star Richard Burton during and after the filming of the classic movie. We won’t spoil the story (because you really should see the play), but we will tell you that Cleo focuses on the relationship that received condemnation from the Vatican and the US Congress, opening up the age of paparazzi and tabloid celebrity, ensuring that the names of Taylor and Burton would always be associated with the greatest scandal in Hollywood history. Wright enthralls his audience, humanizing one of the most famous actresses in history, making it easy to understand what she was experiencing emotionally during her very public affair. Cleo is interesting, entertaining, and humorous. Simply Camden bloggers Jodie Gomez and Madi Hayes had a wonderful time, and highly recommend a visit to Alley Theatre for your next night out!
Located in the epicenter of the Houston Theater District, parking near Alley Theatre is usually in plentiful supply. However, it is always a good idea to do your research ahead of time on the best parking deals or think about using public transportation. Another option is to valet at the entrance of Alley Theatre. When we attended the show, we found out that valet parking will only cost a few dollars more than most garages in the area, with the benefit of being close and not having to worry about finding your car in a crowded garage after the show.
Before you take your seat, spend a moment exploring the Theater District! There are several local eateries within walking distance of Alley Theatre where you can grab a bite before the show. We recommend checking out The Blue Fish. You’ll enjoy the sushi so much; you won’t stop thinking about it for the next week. (Seriously - we’re experiencing that right now!) The drinks and cocktails are also tantalizing.
Cleo is running through April 29th and is suitable for mature audiences. Visit your community’s leasing office or log into MyCamden for details about your resident discount on tickets! If you can’t make it to this play, look here for the Alley Theatre’s other upcoming performances.
