Ruffled, racy and sexy-sheer spring fashion steals the spotlight at The Gordy, Stages Repertory Theatre’s fabulous new $35 million setup a block south of its former Montrose location. Here, a warehouse with bunker-thick concrete walls that once inconspicuously housed storage and restoration facilities for the MFA has become a vibrant, state-of-the-art production facility with three separate stages, 608 seats and 70,000 total square feet. Silence your phones, unwrap all candy, and let’s get on with the show!

AN INTERVIEW WITH Dr. Katie Eick, CEO & Founder of Rockin' Pets, Rollin' Vets & Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

What were your biggest challenges in 2020? Well, the onset of Covid would have to be our biggest challenge.

ASK HOUSTON CHEF, writer, filmmaker and activist Adán Medrano about the spiritual aspect of preparing a home-cooked meal, especially using the centuries-old recipes he enjoyed growing up in San Antonio and northern Mexico, and time seems to stop. "'There are voices in the wind. We've forgotten to listen to them,'" says Medrano quietly, sourcing a quote from the new documentary Truly Texas Mexican, which premieres March 1 on Amazon, Apple TV, Google TV and PBS stations across the country, and is inspired by his award-winning cookbook Truly Texas Mexican: A Native Culinary Heritage. "When you cook, you are dealing with a landscape," he explains. "Once you realize your connectiveness to the land and to each other, that is spirituality."
