    Tribute to Long-Time Houston Playwright Eddie Cope

    ANNOUNCING – A Special Remembrance Tribute to honor Eddie Cope.  The Theatre Community is invited to attend a special event to remember and honor Master Stage Playwright Eddie Cope (pictured), who died on November 30, 2009 at the age of 96. Time: Monday evening, January 18th, 2010 at 7:00 pm. Venue: Main Street Theater - Chelsea Market 4617 Montrose Blvd. Houston, Texas 77006.

    The evening will include thoughts from Eddie’s relatives, friends, co-authors and fellow theatre professionals. Additionally, there will be a live performance of Eddie’s short comedy, BINGO. Refreshments will be served. All of the many friends, fellow-playwrights, actors and directors who knew and worked with Eddie (who published over 30 plays and had countless more produced) are welcome to join us for what will surely be a meaningful and memorable tribute to one of the true legends of theatre in Texas.

    PARKING UPDATE AT CHELSEA MARKET (MAY 2014):

    As you may or may not be aware, Main Street Theater's Chelsea Market activities will move to the MATCH once it's built.  The MATCH is the Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston and will break ground on May 7, 2014.  We hope to be able to move out of Chelsea market into our new home at the MATCH in the fall of 2015.  There's more information on the MATCH here: http://www.matchouston.org/

    IN THE MEANTIME:
    You may have noticed that Chelsea Market has recently lost half its parking lot in a sale to a developer. In addition, our lease on that space has expired, BUT we are being allowed to stay through our 2015 season, providing we can find solutions to some of the parking problems our activities create. This affects all our programs: the showcases on Saturday mornings, our schoolday performances, and our weekend family matinees.  We are very grateful to be able to stay at Chelsea until the MATCH is ready.  

    We want to do everything we can to help our fellow tenants and our landlord, so:

    • For SATURDAY PERFORMANCES, we have received permission from the Joy School across Chelsea Blvd. to use their parking lot.  If it is convenient for you, please check this lot first for parking and walk across the courtyard to the theater. 
    • There's also quite a bit of on-street parking on Chelsea Blvd.     

     We hope this will also make it easier for YOU as you won't have to deal with the stress of a full Chelsea Market parking lot!
