Out on Stage

Charm City, a town known for “bleeding purple” in support of its NFL football team, will have a new reason to enjoy the color this October. Running from Tuesday, October 17th to Sunday, October 22nd at the Hippodrome Theatre, The Color Purple brings its soul-raising score of jazz, gospel, ragtime, and blues to Baltimore. The 2016 Tony Award winner for Best Musical Revival provides audiences with a re-imagining of an epic story about Celie and her journey to love and triumph in the American South. Baltimore OUTloud recently sat down with actor Kyle Baird, who plays the roles of Buster and Bobby in the performance.

On the heels of its acclaimed production of The Cradle Will Rock, the Iron Crow Theatre is bringing a “science fiction double feature” to the stage as The Rocky Horror Show will cause audiences to shiver in antici … pation. Running at the Motor House (120 West North Avenue, Baltimore) from Thursday, October 26th to Tuesday, October 31st, Iron Crow’s annual performance follows the story of sweethearts Brad and Janet who encounter the wildly seductive world of Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Along the way they find a creepy butler, a devious maid, and the delightfully muscular creation, Rocky.

Harold Pinter’s The Lover and The Collection challenges viewers’ ability to deconstruct fantasies into realities and unravel lies into truths. It’s all conveyed with the dialog and silences for which he’s known.

Baltimore Symphony makes classics au courant

Music is always evolving. When an artist creates a masterpiece, the world does not say, “That’s it. There’s no more music to be made.” Through inspiration and innovation, musicians build on past creative masters to develop new pieces and styles. The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s Pulse series shows this phenomenon first hand. The third season of BSO Pulse will kick off on October 19th with four-time Grammy Award-winner Esperanza Spalding.
