Cultural Events

Alley Theatre kicks off its one year residency on the University of Houston campus with The Old Friends, a recent off-Broadway world premiere. The Alley is uniting many of the cast and creative team that created the NY production, called “transcendent” by the NY post and named the “critic’s pick” by the NY Times. Award-winning Texas playwright Horton Foote’s play is about the eldest woman in the family and the remaining members of two longtime Texas families who confront issues of loyalty, legacy, the meaning of happiness. During UH WOW, you can join us for only $14 for any Tues., Wed., Thurs. and Sun. 7:30 p.m performance, using promocode: UHSTUDENT.
