This past weekend my girlfriends and I kicked off the 2014 holiday season by attending our first event of the season at the Ensemble Theatre in Houston, Texas (http://www.ensemblehouston.com). As a long-time subscriber, I can always count on the Ensemble Theatre to add a different spice, a different flavor, and a different flair to the traditional offerings on the Houston theatre scene during the holiday season. Their production of “A Soulful Christmas” is a refreshing new addition for this season.
When I heard the title I knew we would enjoy some great music and we were not disappointed. The musical ensembles mesmerized us with their rendition of familiar Christmas songs from the 1940’s to the present and the story that was wrapped around the music was very original. The talent of the singers, actors, and dancers was of stellar quality and it was difficult to keep still in our seats.
Since it is still early in the holiday season, I don’t want to be a “spoiler” about the production so this post about it will be short. For those of you in or near Houston, I highly recommend that you get a ticket as soon as you can because I know all of the shows will sell out.
How do you “kick-off” the holiday season in your town?
