After a national search, Baltimore School for the Arts (BSA) announced the selection of two department heads to lead the school’s theatre and visual arts programs. Rosiland M. Cauthen will head the theatre department and Archie Veale will serve as acting head of the visual arts department.
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.

Global Sister Cities Exhibition Explores the Role of Art in
Baltimore, MD—May 29, 2014. Center Stage’s newest Fourth Space initiative, Global Sister Cities, connects Baltimore and five international cities to examine the impact of art in the civic sphere.
Most local theatre buffs are pretty excited about Everyman Theatre’s ensuing move downtown. And sure, the new theatre space promises grander things for Everyman. Much of what we love about Everyman is the selection of plays they produce each season. The plays tend to be contemporary, relevant, and requiring the kind of intimacy and human drama that is much better served in a small, simple theatre space than with velvet curtains, golden cherubs, and several layers of balconies. Opening this week at Everyman is Topdog/Underdog, written by Suzan-Lori Parks (the first African American woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for Drama).
In 2009, the Baltimore Rock Opera Society staged their first original production, Gründlehämmer, which “takes place in the mythical land of Brotopia, a once prosperous agrarian Kingdom where the melody of an electric guitar wields power enough to tend a field of crops, to heal the sick, or to smite an enemy.”
Janky but grandiose, the show quickly found an audience ready to follow the BROS down the rabbit hole of excess and faux self-seriousness. Four years later, and the group has five major productions to their credit. They were also instrumental in the revival of the once-dilapidated Autograph Theatre on 25th Street and are now raising money to renovate a more permanent home at the Bell Foundry in Station North and to fund tours through the Northeast.
