The abundance of reality television proves that all the world's a stage, and courtroom dramas make up a good portion of our unscripted guilty pleasures. Now local attorneys and judges are stepping out of the courthouse and into the world of musical theater for Night Court 2017: Con Law - From the Beginning, trading in their briefcases and gavels for an evening of singing, dancing and rapping. The charity show parodies hits from DNCE, Amy Winehouse, Pat Benatar and Broadway's Hamilton as it takes us on a musical journey through law, politics and history. Expect to see a few suits in the audience, too, as legal professionals can pick up a couple of CLE credits just for attending. 7:30 p.m. August 16-19. The Hobby Center, 800 Bagby. For information, call 713-315-2525 or visit nightcourt.org. $35 to $43. [Organizer's description:] Support Houston Legal Charities, Come see Night Court!
