You don’t see many collections of extremely personal essays turned into raucous, uplifting stage musicals. It’s just hard to picture the silly but somber musings of David Sedaris or the hazy, drunken memories of Chelsea Handler getting a soundtrack that would incorporate Chorus Line-esque choreography, although Lord knows someone in Broadway is probably trying to do it anyway. If anyone could pull off such a feat, it would be musician and noted Star Search winner Sam Harris, who has done just that with his personal book of essays called Ham: Slices of a Life. His “liter-usical” incorporates very personal stories from his tumultuous childhood to his famed friendship with Liza Minnelli into a live musical stage show. He’ll be in Dallas to perform it for one night only at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Kalita Humphreys Theater, 3636 Turtle Creek Blvd. Regular seats are $16 and premium seats are $36.
