It’s not surprising that stellar actors Bruce R. Nelson and Carl Schurr would click so well in The Dresser, a well-balanced dramatic and humorous play, which is currently on stage at the Everyman Theatre. They have a long string of theatrical successes under their belts with Mr. Nelson, a local favorite, capturing a Helen Hayes Award among other honors. These Everyman resident company members formed an extraordinary duo and gave what some could rightly call an acting clinic as the two leads in Ronald Harwood’s play.
We’ll never know if King Arthur, his subjects, and rivals actually behaved as they did on the stage of Toby’s, the Dinner Theatre of Columbia, but if they had, it would have been one uproarious era. In the musical theatre’s version of the 1975 film Monty Python’s Spamalot (with a number of differences from the film), director Mark Minnick and his cast and crew offers up one hilarious, laugh-a-second production to the delight of the audience.
The book and lyrics were by Eric Idle who also composed the music with John Du Prez. Mike Nichols directed the original Broadway production of Spamalot in 2005 garnering three Tony Awards including Best Musical among 14 nominations. It ran for over 1,500 performances, and the show has been seen in over a dozen countries.
B'More QFest announced that it will kick off its inaugural year with Leslie Jordan, most well known for his Emmy-winning role as Beverly Leslie on the hit show Will and Grace.

Patti Issues – the hit solo play, starring Ben Rimalower – will be playing for one-night only on January 25. The Creative Alliance will present the show at The Patterson, 3134 Eastern Avenue, Baltimore. The play has been hailed as “ecstatically vivid” by the New York Times and praised for its “wit, feeling, and conviction” by New York’s Time Out. It comes to Baltimore on the heels of its triumphant 14-month run in New York and following recent performances in Boston, Berlin, Glasgow, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Berkeley, Provincetown, and the Fire Island Pines, as well as its inclusion as an official selection in the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s Summer Conference.
