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.

According to the Associated Press, a new musical about Bob Marley will have its world premiere in Baltimore next spring. Per the AP,
The show focuses on the years 1975 to 1978, when Marley survived an attempted assassination in Jamaica and went into exile in London.
