Acclaimed One-Man Show Mother/SON at Theatre Project


Mother Son at theatre project

catch of the day fish (2)Baltimore Theatre Project is “Baltimore’s Fringe Festival all year round.” And it’s true. While we love the high production and spectacular splash of the shows that come through the Hippodrome and the classically complex works produced by Center Stage, sometimes you just want something a little smaller. A little more intimate. Something high-emotion, but lo-fi. And that’s just the kind of work that can really shine at a venue like Theatre Project. Jeffrey Solomon’s award-winning Mother/SON charts the delicate, layered and changing relationship between a Jewish gay man and his mother. It’s an honest and poignant autobiographical exploration brought to the stage with precision, imagination and understated power.

Bored? Broke? A little bereft? Ready to spend some time with demons? Dybbuks? Yiddish? Intrigue? Check out Teibele and Hurmizah, an erotic fable in English and Yiddish. It will begin its two-week Baltimore tour at Arellano Theater at Hopkins on Friday, April 13, and will end next Saturday, April 21, at the Bell Foundry with a stop of the Jewish Museum of Maryland on Thursday, April 19. Admission: Free!

Opening with Talmudic standup by local poet Alexander Nemser, and a short screening of the stop-motion animations of Mugi Takei. Featuring the musical talent of Charm City Klezmer and the creative costumes by recent MICA graduate (MICA ’12), Amelia Beiderwell. “Teibele and Hurmizah” explores superstition, fantasy, and sex in a conservative Jewish community in Poland at the turn of the century with a dark and sexy sense of humor.

Admission is at no cost thanks to funding from the Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Fellowship and Homewood Arts at JHU.

If all of this isn’t enough incentive, free snacks and refreshments will be provided.
