BWW Review: Fresh Production, Unfresh Play: AMADEUS at Center StageBWW Review: Fresh Production, Unfresh Play: AMADEUS at Center Stage
by Jack L. B. Gohn (Baltimore)

(9/22/2014) - There is nothing wrong with the handsome production director Kwame Kwei-Armah has given us, from the amazing two-storey set by Timothy R. Mackabee to the decolletage-heavy, periwig-topped, bustle-bottomed, gilded costumes of David Burdick, to the sturdy performances of Bruce Randolph Nelson and Stanton Nash as Salieri and Mozart, to literally everything else associated with this resurrection of the show. I am convinced that the problem lies with the script itself.

(9/22/2014) - Wow to the theater, a three-tier structure that echoes the layout of Shakespeare's own Globe. Wow to the play, one of Shakespeare's funniest. Wow to the acting, the direction, the staging, the lighting. The audience is assured of over two hours of being in stitches.

BWW Reviews: ONCE at the HippodromeBWW Reviews: ONCE at the Hippodrome
by Tina Saratsiotis (Baltimore)

(9/19/2014) - For Baltimore theater goers, a show at the Hippodrome is a must-see experience. The ornate charm of this historical gem sets an anticipatory air of excitement for the audience. It's proven to be versatile in its staging of both new and old Broadway whether elaborate or intimate. The most recent production, ONCE, is a successful example of the Hippodrome's ability to stretch and contract its personality to fit the style of a small indie movie as well as any elaborate Disney extravaganza.

(9/18/2014) - Vagabond Players' production of ART in historic Fells Point is surprisingly funny despite dense dialogue and sparse set- or perhaps because of them.

Strand Theater Company to Present GOD'S COUNTRY, 10/9-18Strand Theater Company to Present GOD'S COUNTRY, 10/9-18
by BWW News Desk (Baltimore)

(9/16/2014) - The Strand Theater Company welcomes a renown solo artist Michelle Antoinette Nelson, a.k.a. LOVE the poet, with her one-woman show - God's Country. In a setting of a Wednesday night bible study, Michelle will take on eight distinct voices: a teen mother with HIV, an urban teenage drug dealer, a husband on the down low, a poetic narrator, a blind gay church musician, and more. Each character, in what is Michelle's first original full-length play, is searching for the God in themselves through the eyes of everyone else, searching for an interpretation of 'the word' that makes sense in their lives, searching for the answer to this question, 'If this is God's country, where the hell is God?'


BWW Reviews: Rousing MEMPHIS at Toby's Proves You Can Do Worse Than Be FormulaicBWW Reviews: Rousing MEMPHIS at Toby's Proves You Can Do Worse Than Be Formulaic
by Jack L. B. Gohn (Baltimore)

(9/16/2014) - So far as I know, Toby's staging of Memphis: The Musical is the first local production to date in the Baltimore area, certainly one of the first, and a worthy introduction of the show to the region. It seems to have everything that the Broadway show has: fiery, precise dancing, tuneful belting of catchy songs, great period costumes. In other words, a sure-fire great time, as one would expect for a musical that, on Broadway, won the Tony for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book.
