Christopher and Kristy Bradshaw and Leigh and Reggie Smith (pictured, from left) joined the Houston Ballet’s 2022-23 season kickoff with a festive Opening Night Onstage Dinner held at the Wortham Theater Center. Chaired by Christine and David M. Underwood, Jr. and honoring Jean and Henry May, the evening raised more than $210,000 for the Houston Ballet. Guests enjoyed a performance and post-performance dinner on the Brown stage. This year’s performance included Trey McIntyre’s reinterpretation of Sir James M. Barrie’s classic tale Peter Pan told through the eyes of a child with spectacular flying sequences, sword fights, giant puppets, and pixie dust. After the performance, Houston Ballet executive director Jim Nelson addressed the crowd while the stage was transformed into a beautifully set dinner for more than 200 guests.
