It’s the curse of all rock stars — their music will live on long after they’ve left this mortal coil. Lucky for those of us who still mourn our gone-too-soon idols, at least we have a music-filled romp with Rec Room Arts’ Dead Rockstar Sing-A-Long Club, this time honoring the music of George Michael and Sharon Jones. “We’ve billed it as part theater, part concert. It’s a musical eulogy honoring the work of those musicians,” says artistic director Matt Hune. Actors/singers Wesley Whitson, Orlanders Jones and Mahoganee Renee will portray the lead characters, along with a full band, choreography, lighting and costumes. Even though this is a sing-along — yes, there will be music books — don’t expect a curated karaoke night.

8 p.m. Thursday. Continuing 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. July 20 through August 12. 100 Jackson Street. For information, call 713-999-9196 or visit recroomarts.org. Free to $20.

[Organizer's Description]

WORLD PREMIERE DEAD ROCK STAR SING-A-LONG CLUB Directed by Matt Hune Music Direction by Abby Seible An edgy theatrical concert + movement piece honoring the work of George Michael and Sharon Jones. The second annual Dead Rock Star Sing-A-Long Club honors our most beloved musicians who have died within the year. Last year, it was a Prince and Bowie inspired rumination on loss and public vs. private grief. This year, it’s George Michael and Sharon Jones and it’s all about romantic love. The audience gets songbooks at the door and is welcome to sing a long if they choose. Join us for this upbeat musical eulogy that’s part concert, part theatre, and total celebration. SHOW DATES: July 20 at 8 PM July 21 at 8 PM July 22 at 8 PM July 27 at 8 PM July 28 at 8 PM August 3 at 8 PM August 4 at 8 PM August 5 at 8 PM August 10 at 8 PM August 11 at 8 PM August 12 at 8 PM #recroomhtx #DeadRockStarHOU
