In town for several days and parked under expansive white tents, the show Artania got called off for tonight just a few minutes ago when the day's dark and gloomy skies opened up, accompanied by a tornado alert.
But never fear.
John Finlay, president of FMA Consultants who has been helping the Russian troupe while they're in town, says any Friday tickets will be good throughout the weekend, with shows at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday and 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Sunday. Although how the seat assignments will be worked out is anyone's guess.
Also shut down by the rain: The first day of the BP 150 Bike Ride. And the Crawfish Festival at Sam Houston Race Park.
