From Improv! The Musical to Louis CK, here are the top theater events happening in Houston the week of February 3.
Louis CK @ Houston Improv Comedy Club
Thursday, February 6 | 8PM
Louis CK is currently on tour around the US, and before he heads overseas for some shows you can watch him perform at the Houston Improv Comedy Club. He will actually be performing for a few days in a row, so you have a lot of opportunities to catch him this week. Still recovering from the #MeToo scandal that took place in 2017, one could say this is his attempt at another redemption tour. His incredibly honest, sometimes ridiculous, and occasionally a little over-the-top comedy style has made his audience laugh for years. You can grab tickets to this show on SeatGeek starting at $334.
Houston Youth Symphony’s Winter Concert @ Rice University
Sunday, February 9 | 2:30PM
The award-winning Houston Youth Symphony will be presenting their Winter concert this Sunday at Rice University. This concert will be a two-part series. The first part will start at 2:30PM, and the second part will begin at 7:00PM. The afternoon program will feature the Debut String Orchestra, String Orchestra, and Sinfonia. The evening program begins with the Houston Youth Symphony performing Sir Malcolm Arnold’s Tam O’Shanter Overture and the finale of Vasily Kalinnikov’s Symphony No. 1. Tickets start at $10.
Jersey Boys @ Hobby Center
Friday, February 7 | 8PM
Jersey Boys is a behind-the scenes Broadway musical about Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons. This Tony Award-winning production goes behind-the-music and inside the story of how they went from the streets of New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They were just four simple guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. Get tickets on SeatGeek.
Improv! The Musical @ CSz Arena
Friday, February 7 | 10:30PM
People like Tina Fey and Will Ferrell are examples of actors who can deliver witty, hilarious, and original lines right on the spot, elevating their performances. Being able to just come up with lines, stories, and an entire show or movie on the spot is always incredibly impressive. Well, that’s exactly what Improv! The Musical is all about. Members of ComedySportz Houston will be taking the stage this Friday night and coming up with a storyline, choreography, and soundtrack right before your eyes. It’s one of those things that you just have to see to believe. Grab tickets for just $10!

The Fantasticks @ Stages Repertory Theatre
Wednesday, February 5 | 7:30PM
This hump day, break up the mundane week with The Fantasticks performing at the Stages Repertory Theatre. The Fantasticks is a 1960s musical loosely based on the play The Romancers by Edmond Rostand. The story follows two fathers that trick their children, Luisa and Matt, into falling in love by pretending to feud. This musical is funny, romantic, and one that will make you feel like you’re in a world of poetry and magic. The show has minimal costumes, practically no set, and a small band. This makes the show feel so intimate, pure, and moving. There’s a reason why it’s the longest-running musical in the world.
