Creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky– that surely defines that ooky Addams family. You can add hilarious and goofy to the mix and you have the recipe for a delicious, zany production of The Addams Family, currently playing at Toby’s the Dinner Theatre of Columbia.
What perfect timing for Center Stage to present Kemp Powers’ outstanding play One Night in Miami! The fictional story of four African-American icons who were also friends – Cassius Clay, Malcolm X, Jim Brown, and Sam Cooke – who gathered in a Miami hotel on February 25, 1964, the night of Clay’s upset win over heavyweight boxing champ Sonny Liston that took place during the height of the civil rights struggle.
The set of Samuel D. Hunter’s 2012 The Whale currently playing at Rep Stage’s Studio Theatre on the campus of Howard Community College screams, “I don’t care anymore.” An unkempt living room, an untidy kitchen, books in shelves strewn about in haphazard fashion, and clothes hanging in various places in this crummy northern Idaho apartment symbolize the pathetic, self-loathing, apologetic main character Charlie who resides in this disarray. His apartment is a mess, and so is his life. Designer James Fouchard crafted this outstanding, realistic set for this play.
One Night in Miami, written by Kemp Powers, will be opening at Center Stage on January 14. It offers a fictional account of what may have happened in a tiny Miami hotel room on February 25, 1964, the night 22-year-old Cassius Clay had just won the world heavyweight boxing title. Instead of hitting the town, Clay chooses to celebrate in that hotel room with three close friends: activist Malcolm X, singer Sam Cooke, and football star Jim Brown.
Baltimore has a long and proud tradition in the burlesque world, most notably with the infamous Blaze Starr, and TimelessTease is hoping to be a part of its continued evolution. TimelessTease Productions, which is about to hit the stage in January, is Baltimore’s newest burlesque company, but this isn’t your mama’s burlesque.
For starters, TimelessTease is theater-burlesque; meaning the shows will be scripted plays with burlesque, vaudeville, and live music blended in.
