Performing Arts Houston shouts out C.J. Stroud with clever sale on must-see shows
Sports and culture often intersect: take star athlete-owned restaurants, pro athlete walk-in fashion, or the fact that one of the world's biggest movie stars is a former college football player and former wrestler. It's a match that works.
So, we love that Performing Arts Houston, purveyors of all things music, theater, and more, has shouted out Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud with a limited-time promotion, one where everyone wins.
Performing Arts Houston is offering limited-time sale on select — and very cool — shows runs now through 3:30 pm Saturday, January 18. Local sports fans know that's kickoff for the Texans' huge AFC Division playoff game with the Baltimore Ravens. And in a clever nod to our franchise QB — who we think is the best in the NFL — these tickets are just $7, in honor of our hero's jersey number.
As for those shows: performances and events range from globally renowned pianist Bruce Liu, Grammy Award-winning trio Time for Three, and even a night with Peter Sagal, the witty host of the hit NPR show Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! Discounted, $7 tickets are for select price levels and must be purchased before the 3:30 pm Saturday deadline.
