"It's hard to express how funny and exhilarating and poignant this show is," says Adams. "It's my favorite play I've ever directed, because it has so much to say about the difficulties of being an artist." This production marks the third time that Adams and Celeste Roberts, the actress who plays Callas, have done Master Class, which Adams says might seem "to be a show about opera, [but] it's really a show that even people who don't like opera can love." 8 p.m. today. Through January 24. Main Street Theater, Chelsea Market, 4617 Montrose. For a full schedule, call 713-524-6706 or visit www.mainstreettheater.com. $10 to $36.
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Jan. 2. Continues through Jan. 24, 2010
