All songs aren't created equal. For 19-year-old Khalid Robinson, "Location" went from SoundCloud buzzmaker to national smash hit thanks in part to Kylie Jenner's Snapchat.

A young woman ends up shipwrecked on a foreign coast, her twin brother presumed dead in the disaster. This being a William Shakespeare play, there are plenty of complications to come of this, but of the elegantly elaborate kind. She disguises herself as a boy and goes to work for Duke Orsino, only to fall in love with him. This is where Shakespeare really shines; the drama unfolds as the love between these two is complicated by plot twists that we won't reveal. You'll have to head to Miller Outdoor Theatre to learn the tale of these two. For information, visit houstonfestivalscompany.com or milleroutdoortheatre.com. Free.
