Two Cool Cats

Broadway Intersects with Westheimer

Who doesn’t like a martini and a steak followed by a show? You can have your steak and eat it too today at Sullivan’s, which is bringing in some top Broadway talent for Jerby & Omari Tau Live!, a one-night engagement. Omari Tau, working on his day off from The Lion King‘s run at the Hobby Center, is teaming with John Raymond Barker, fresh off his New York City cabaret debut in Jerby: Fully Loaded, for an evening of standards, jazz, theater numbers, rock, pop and funk. The two will also perform some of their original music, which ranges from bawdy novelty songs to power ballads. Guest performers Doris Davis, Mia Fisher, and Bethany Daniels Shapiro round out the act, while you get rounded at the bar. 8 p.m. 4608 Westheimer. For information, call 713-961-0333 or visit $10.

For its 10th anniversary, I’ve given this song a makeover. I wrote it during the fight for marriage equality, yet the song still resonates given the actions and goals of the current administration. This July, I celebrate 10 years of marriage with the man this song is about. No one can take that away from us.
