Sunday, February 10, 4 pm: Paul Williams: Still Alive at 14 Pews
  • “He won Grammys and an Academy Award; wrote many #1 songs; starred in a Brian DePalma movie; put out his own hit records and albums; was a guest on The Tonight Show fifty times; and is the president of ASCAP...and you might not have heard of him. In the 1970's, Paul Williams was the singer / actor / songwriter that emotional, alienated teenage boys all over the world wanted to be, a sex symbol before MTV, when sex symbols could be 5"2 and sing songs about loneliness with the Muppets. A wistful musical journey that will re-introduce a new generation to Williams' soulful classics, Paul Williams: Still Alive is the charmingly self-narrated story of Stephen Kessler's lifelong obsession with the former superstar-and what happens when the nostalgic filmmaker finally catches up with him. 
  • When director Stephen Kessler first began to look into Williams’ life, he believed that he was dead. But after finding out that Williams was very much alive, he talked the aging pop star into letting him film his current experiences, in the process cultivating a tenuous friendship that proves more revealing – about both men – than either expected.”
  • I have seen this movie and it’s awesome.
  • 14 Pews is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the diverse cultural needs of our community by providing a forum to experience, discuss and celebrate film, art & music, and to strengthen our community through education and fostering cross-cultural experiences.

**Use the discount code- THEHEIGHTS to register and get 10% off race registration at colorinmotion5k.com/event/Houston.**
  • For those of you who may not be familiar with Girls on the Run, it is a wonderful charity that benefits the young girls of Houston. It teaches girls self-respect and healthy lifestyle through running and interactive curriculum. 
  • This is is not a timed race so you can run, walk, jog, whatever your prefer as long as you are moving and having fun. 
  • Here's how it works: 
    • Come in white clothes and start moving!
    • At every kilometer of the race there is a color pit where volunteers throw color on you as you go by, helping make the experience more fun and turning your white clothes into a palette of color. What also makes Color in Motion 5k different than your average 5k race is the after party. Afterwards there is a big party with music, dancing, vendors and a color throw.

Heights Happenings: January 2- January 9, 2013

2013. 2013? Did I really just type that? Wow. 

Hope you all had an amazing holiday season. My family did. It was fun and hectic and insane. We loved every minute of it but are also excited to start a new year and return to some degree of normalcy.

Did you get any good Heights gifts this year? My sons got me a lovely necklace and ring from Hello, Lucky. Santa brought my husband some shaving supplies from One Green Street, as well as their OGS coffee beans locally roasted by Boomtown on 19th. The boys also gifted their grandparents with ornaments they painted at The Funny Potter on Studewood. Unfortunately my kids have reached those ages where they know what they want and it pretty much has to be purchased at a toy store...

I am really looking forward to seeing what positive changes 2012 has for our wonderful neighborhood!

  • Located in Spring Street Studios, CTC produces plays that are at least 100 years old and is the only theatre in the state of Texas that solely produces year round classical drama. The company is in their fifth anniversary season and is quickly growing.
  • Ubu Roi is an avant-garde foray into the nature of greed and power. Ubu plots with his wife and fellow conspirators to kill the King of Poland, the broad satire that proceeds to unfold shows all the wild results of that conspiracy and murder. Alfred Jarry was a groundbreaking playwright whose works pushed the bounds of decency and theatre in his day. 
  • Through this play CTC hopes to expose their audience to something a bit different than the usual theater experience. With a ten person cast playing over thirty characters and a highly interactive set jcomplete with trap doors and hidden entrances, this play promises to entertain as well as challenge the viewer by asking the audience to redefine what they know of as “classical”.
