Memoirs of the Sistahood, Chapter Two

Learn how to be a good wife at today's performances of Memoirs of the Sistahood, Chapter Two. Film, choreography and art help reveal the lives of the six Beaullieu "sistas," Becky, Beth, Bitsy, Bonnie, Barbara and Babette, along with brother Buster. Memories of growing up in a huge family in Louisiana during the 1950s are the focus of the multimedia performance, which includes one especially instructive breakfast (one of the sisters dances with a box of cereal, giving the women in the audience advice on how to be a good wife). 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Barnevelder Movement/Arts Complex, 2201 Preston Street. For information, call 713-529-1819 or visit www.memoirsofthesistahood.com. $10 to $15.
