Baltimore Center Stage had “Lookingglass Alice” in its season lineup long before Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore was on the radar or #metoo became a hashtag. And while this energetic and whimsical take on the beloved Alice’s trippy meanderings isn’t explicitly about female exploitation and empowerment, I couldn’t keep my mind from going there.
Baltimore Center Stage has continued its fall season with Shakespeare In Love, a theatrical adaptation of the Oscar-winning film of the same name, directed by Blake Robison, Artistic Director of the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park.

With a bit of financial backing from the city, Baltimore’s DIY rock opera collective is linking up with Baltimore’s Arena Players for a two-part production in early 2018.

Settle in for this time-honored musical, about a boy, a girl, and their scheming fathers after an exclusive Mixolo members-only brunch in the theater’s Parlor room. If bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys aren’t enough, a visit with special guests from the production should prep you for the show.
