Company OnStages latest production, Reckless, might be a little out of season (the story starts on Christmas Eve), but the message is timeless: Its not why tragedies happen that matters, its how you respond to them. It takes Rachel, the shows lead, a few turns at bat to learn that, but she eventually does (and so do we). Rachels journey begins when her husband admits that his yet-to-be-delivered gift is a hit man out to get her. After a moment of disbelief, she runs out of the house and into the night. Fleeing into an uncertain future, she hitches a ride with a stranger, saying, I always wanted to do something reckless, you know? 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Through July 25. 536 Westbury Square. For information, call 713-721-0243 or visit www.companyonstage.com. $13 to $15.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: June 26. Continues through July 25, 2009
