Out on Stage

Out on Stage

Cirque du Soleil’s “Toruk – The First Flight” soars into Baltimore this month bringing with it a stunning cavalcade of vivid characters from the world of Avatar. The mythical tale, set thousands of years before the events in James Cameron’s Academy Award-nominated film, tells the story of Ralu, Entu, and Tsyak who must search out Toruk in order to save the sacred Tree of Souls from a natural catastrophe.

The Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, D.C. (GMCW), is adding a little Latin flair to Washington society this month in celebration of its spring gala on Saturday, May 14th at the Mayflower Hotel. Entitled “Havana Nights,” the Cuban-themed affair is GMCW’s annual black-tie fundraiser. Hosted by NBC4-TV’s Wendy Reiger, patrons will also enjoy the music of special guest performer Cheyenne Jackson.

When Beauty and the Beast takes to the Hippodrome stage on opening night, Annapolis-native David Grindrod will experience the culmination of his childhood dreams come true. The performer recently stepped away from his role in the “tale as old as time” to chat with Baltimore OUTloud about the upcoming performance, growing up in Annapolis, and his excitement about returning home.

Flirtatious dance numbers and theatrical intrigue will captivate onlookers as the musical masterpiece Cabaret comes to Baltimore’s Hippodrome Theater. Running from April 26th through May 1st, Cabaret will take audiences back to 1930s Berlin where the seedy Kit Kat Klub sets the stage for passion-filled drama and celebration. Baltimore OUTLoud recently sat down with Cabaret star Randy Harrison, who steps into the role of the Emcee.

As I turn a corner in the basement of Har Sinai facility that Pumpkin Theatre now resides I was blasted 30 years into my past. Stacks of multicolored carpeted mats were neatly tucked in a corner, which Pumpkin Theatre’s little patrons use to be transported to exotic locations, enchanted forests, and elegant ballrooms. This is how I first experienced theatre many years ago and subsequently led me to lead a life in the theatre as an educator, performer, director, and critic.
