Do You Like Them with a Mouse?
We bet you like green eggs and ham, we bet you really do. We bet you like them on a train, a plane or even in a zoo. We're sure you like green eggs and ham -- so sure are we indeed -- we bet you like green eggs and ham even when you read. We know you read Green Eggs and Ham, but now it's to your kids. You want to share that happy tale, just like your parents did. So next time you read it, be sure to let them know: There's a symphony about said delicacy by Robert Kapilow.
His work has been called a masterpiece, among other things. It's a light piece about Seuss's tale that onward rings and rings. So take your kids to hear it, take them one and all. All you need's a ticket, and we bet you'll have a ball. 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Saturday, March 6. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-224-4240 or visit www.houstonsymphony.org. $8.50 to $12.75. --Keith Plocek
