6 Best Fall Plays to Catch in Person

One of the activities I missed the most during the pandemic was going to the theatre with and sometimes without the children. We are excited that we may finally might be seeing that stage spotlight at the end of the tunnel, leading us back to live, indoor theater again. Here are some shows that we will be welcoming this fall.

Broadway at Hobby Center opens with My Fair Lady September 14

As the curtain rises in New York once more, the big musical tours will also hit the road. One of the grandest, the My Fair Lady revival, dances through Houston.

Alley Theatre opens with Sweat October 1

For their 75th anniversary season the Alley has an incredible  lineup with several world premieres.

Stages opens with Hook’s Tale October 1

Stages is all in with world premiere plays and musicals for ’21-22, including four debuts from locally based playwrights. The fall lineup has a generous mix of comedies, dramas and musicals, with two holiday shows: a brand new Texas Panto, Panto Little Mermaid and a fan favorite from CTU (the Catechism theatrical universe), Sister’s Christmas Catechism.

Main Street Theater opens the fall season with Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! The Musical

Main Street Theatre is also bringing back the holiday spirit with A Little House Christmas scheduled from November 3 to December 18, 2021.

Theatre Under the Stars opens with Rock of Ages October 5

Many of the dazzling shows that were scheduled for last season have been moved to the coming season, so get ready for ’80s headbangers (Rock of Ages), singing sea creatures (Disney’s Little Mermaid), hospitable Canadians (touring Come From Away), and a fake nun on the run (Sister Act).

A.D. Players opens with “Dear Jack, Dear Louise” October 6

The company looks to bring Houston audiences a season of shows about human triumph amid struggles.
