The Hobby Centers Sarofim Hall will host a sister session when Gossip, Lies & Secrets settles in for a weeklong run. The urban-genre musical stage play by Angela -Barrow-Dunlap follows three female friends, a novelist, an R&B diva and a TV soap star who are successful but find the stress of that success daunting. To let off steam, they get together to dish dirt and reveal their deepest, darkest secrets with a sacred pact that their secrets are safe with each other. But when the author gets a hot publishing deal, guess what she does? The show features film and music stars Clifton Powell and Blu Cantrell, as well as former Miss USA Kenya Moore. 8 p.m. today through Friday, November 9; 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday, November 10; 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Sunday, November 11. 800 Bagby.
