The musical, developed by our own Theater Under the Stars and the Alley Theatre, with lyrics by two-time Oscar-winning lyricist Leslie Bricusse (Dr. Doolittle and Victor/Victoria), has its share of pop anthems and campy operetta moments, but it has an entertaining, high-drama quotient that is unbeatable in live theater, especially when produced by Houstons own live-wire musical company, Masquerade Theatre. Those phenomenal voices will put appropriate oomph into the showstoppers Once Upon a Dream, A New Life and In His Eyes. And you cant knock a score whose big number, This Is the Moment, was performed at the Olympics, the Miss America Pageant and the Democratic Convention. 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays. Through May 29. Hobby Center, 800 Bagby. For information, call 713-861-7045 or visit www.masqueradetheatre.com. $36.25 to $66.25.
Fridays-Sundays. Starts: May 20. Continues through May 29, 2011
