Elizabeth Gilbert

Elizabeth Gilbert's memoir/phenomenon Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia may have finally hit the proverbial wall with the recent release of the parody Drink, Play, [email protected]#k: One Man's Search for Anything Across Ireland, Las Vegas, and Thailand. Still, there are millions of Gilbert fanatics out there, lured by her international tale of self-discovery after a wrenching divorce, and her subsequent hot love for a Brazilian named Felipe. Today, Gilbert will read from the sequel/sure-to-be-phenomenon Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage (each audience member will receive a copy with their admission), the tale of how she came to marry said Brazilian lover. The reading will benefit the Ucross Foundation, a rural-Wyoming retreat for professional creative types like Gilbert, who wrote her tales of womanly epiphany while in residence there. Perhaps Me and My Millions is next? 7:30 p.m. Hubbard Stage, Alley Theatre, 615 Texas. For information, call 713-220-5700 or visit www.alleytheatre.org. $25 to $35.
