While the 9 to 5: The Musical tour has been postponed, we're excited to bring you ON YOUR FEET! based on the story & music of @gloriaestefan and @emilioestefanjr! @nytimes raves, “The very air in the room seems to vibrate in this undeniably crowd-pleasing musical!” Mar 2-4, 2023!

Our hearts are heavy with the news of the Uvalde tragedy. Our support is with the children, families, teachers, and the community who are forever impacted. This is another reminder of the work that needs to be done, both on the awareness of mental illness and family violence.

Those aren't fuzzy red caterpillars in this photo from the Corner of Curiosity; they're female inflorescences of Acalypha hispida (chenille plant). This tropical shrub thrives in hot, humid summer climates & produces flowers any time temps are warm enough (which is often in HOU).

Our hearts are broken for the victims and families of the tragedy in Uvalde. If you are struggling, we encourage you to reach out for support, whether that be with The Council or elsewhere. No one should suffer alone – we heal in community.
