BWW Review: A Community's Accomplishment and the Homosexual Gaze: ALL SHE MUST POSSESS at REP Stage BWW Review: A Community's Accomplishment and the Homosexual Gaze: ALL SHE MUST POSSESS at REP Stage
by Jack L. B. Gohn on February 10, 2018 in Baltimore

All She Must Possess does not suggest that the Cone Collection was Etta's work alone, but rather depicts it as the emanation of the entire community, including not only Etta, but her sister Claribel, Gertrude Stein, Gertrude's brother Leo, Alice Toklas, and the artists, for whom Matisse stands in as representative. It was out of that community's joy in creation and discussions of it (Expressionism vs. Cubism, for instance) that the Collection, a thing of transcendent value, is shown as having emerged. (more...)

Photo Flash: First Glance At ALL SHE MUST POSSESS At Rep Stage Photo Flash: First Glance At ALL SHE MUST POSSESS At Rep Stage
by BWW News Desk on February 09, 2018 in Baltimore

Playwright Susan McCully's original production about Baltimore's famed Cone sisters, "All She Must Possess," will premiere at Rep Stage, the professional regional theatre in residence at Howard Community College (HCC). Dr. Claribel and Miss Etta Cone, daughters of German-Jewish immigrants, could have lived tranquil, appropriate lives as respected Victorian ladies. Instead, the iconic duo voraciously collected art and curios from around the world. The unassuming Etta, often overshadowed by her sister, sat demurely among art and literary geniuses of the early twentieth century, while slowly amassing one of world's greatest Modern art collections.

by BWW News Desk on February 09, 2018 in Baltimore

The Vagabond Players continue their 102nd season with THE PILLOWMAN written by Academy Award nominee Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri) and directed by Eric C. Stein. A writer of macabre short stories becomes the focus of a police interrogation when his tales are linked to a series of actual child murders. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art. Don't miss the story the New York Times called 'Energizing...a blindingly bright black comedy...an unsettling and exhilarating new play.' (more...)
