Keep Houston Press Free

Hot Child in Hollywood

The never-ending saga of celebrity gals gone wild hits the stage in Hot Child in Holly-wood. Local playwright Greg Hundemer of the BooTown Theatre troupe penned this tale about Tenley, a modest Midwestern teen who wins a contest to hang out with her Hollywood idol. Plenty of adult situations ensue as Tenley discovers that her role model, Kelsie, is not the polite priss she plays on the big screen. She introduces Tenley to the Hollywood lifestyle, including plenty of booze, cigarettes and sex with older co-stars. Who knew fame could turn girls bad? Oh yeah, everybody. BooTown’s talent for the off-the-wall ensures that this show will go beyond E!’s imagination. 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Through March 22. Midtown Art Center, 3414 La Branch. For information, call 713-521-3097 or visit www.myspace.com/bootowntheatre. $7 to $10.
March 20-22, 8 p.m., 2008

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
