Myrtle, A Melodrama

It takes a hardcore cynic to resist a melodrama. When A.D. Players opens its 43rd season with Myrtle, A Melodrama, there will be plenty of the over-the-top comedy, villainy and romance that define the genre. The original musical from the group’s founder and artistic director Jeannette Clift George may not spur epiphanies, but it’s almost certain to make you smile. 7:30 p.m. Through October 18. 2710 West Alabama. For tickets and information, call 713-526-2721 or visit www.adplayers.org. $27 to $37.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2:30 p.m.; Wednesdays, Thursdays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Sept. 11. Continues through Oct. 18, 2009
