Now Playing Onstage in Baltimore - Week of 4/13/2014 BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON
ANNE ARUNDEL COMMUNITY COLLEGE
4/10-4/19/2014
BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON creators Michael Friedman and Alex Timbers cook up an alternate universe (and draw parallels to today's political/populist landscape) with their musical about the seventh U.S. president, reinvented as an "emo" rock star. BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON tells the story of America's first political maverick. A.J. kicked British butt, shafted the Indians and smacked down the Spaniards all in the name of these United States--who cares if he didn't have permission?An exhilarating and white-knuckled look at one of our nation's founding rock stars, BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON recreates and reinvents the life of "Old Hickory," from his humble beginnings on the Tennessee frontier to his days as Commander-in-Chief. It also asks the question, is wanting to have a beer with someone reason enough to elect him? What if he's really, really hot?This wildly entertaining 90-minute show is perfect for comedic actors and singers, with minimal dancing required. BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON is an actor driven rather than design-dependent musical; it encourages breaking the fourth wall, audience participation, and rocking out!

GLASS MIND THEATRE PRESENTS THE ALL-AMERICAN GENDERF*CK CABARET
Glass Mind Theatre
4/11-4/19/2014
Glass Mind Theatre Presents THE ALL-AMERICAN GENDERF*CK CABARET by Mariah MacCarthy Directed by Susan Stroupe A Baltimore Premiere! Traditional sexuality combusts. A gender-bending emcee guides the audience as limitations of sexuality are redefined throughout confines and confusion. Aside from the androgynous emcee, Genderf*ck revolves around eight seeming-stereotypes of gender and sex. The twenty-somethings are all intertwined in each other's lives as they navigate sex, gender identity and their relationships with each other. Platonic and romantic relationships sizzle and twist in different directions, and the characters begin to shed what they believed defined them. MacCarthy combines humor, drama, raunchy jokes and dance parties. This production contains a stylized depiction of sexual assault. FEATURING: Jessica Ruth Baker, Siobhan Beckett, Vince Constantino, Jarrett Ervin, Sam Hayder, Maddie Hicks, Sarah Lloyd, Alexander Scally and Sarah Weissman. Friday and Saturdays at 8pm Sunday, April 13 at 2pm Thursday, April 17 at 8pm

Chapelgate Christian Academy
3/28-4/30/2014
Annie Oakley is the best shot around, and she manages to support her little brother and sisters by selling the game she hunts. When she's discovered by Col. Buffalo Bill, he persuades this novel sharpshooter to join his Wild West Show. It only takes one glance for her to fall head over heels for dashing shooting ace Frank Butler, who headlines the show. She soon eclipses Butler as the main attraction which, while good for business, is bad for romance. Butler hightails it off to join a rival show, his bruised male ego leading the way, but is ultimately pitted against Annie in a final shoot-out. The rousing, sure-fire finale hits the mark every time in a testament to the power of female ingenuity.Music and Lyrics by Irving Berlin; Book by Herbert Fields & Dorothy Fields
