“Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Broadway”

The Houston Symphony performs classics from the Great White Way

A lot of Broadway fanatics were left out in the cold — literally — last month when New York’s stagehands went on strike. Add that to Times Square’s brutal crowds and the cost of an expensive plane ticket, and you might start thinking: Wouldn’t it just be easier if Broadway came to me? Well, your prayers have been answered: With “Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Broadway,” the Houston Symphony will please even the most experienced fanatics of the Great White Way.

Conductor Michael Krajewski will lead the ensemble of musicians, plus vocalists Debbie Gravitte, Doug LaBrecque and Anne Runolfsson, through hits from Lloyd Webber’s classics The Phantom of the Opera and Cats. And as if Sir Andrew’s repertoire weren’t enough to feast on, they’ll also perform hits from A Chorus Line, Wicked, Beauty and the Beast, Chicago and The Lion King. 8 p.m. today and tomorrow, 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-224-7575 or visit www.houstonsymphony.org. $29 to $97.
Jan. 4-5, 8 p.m.; Sun., Jan. 6, 7:30 p.m., 2008
