Concert Review: Whoopi Goldberg at the Lyric

Whoopi Goldberg

How does one review Whoopi Goldberg?  “She was at the Lyric for one show Saturday night and she was brilliant.”  But somehow, I feel like I should say more than that. Her entrance onto the stage was fun.  First, all you see is a sliver of white just offstage on the right, flitting around.  Gradually, […]

Theatre Review: ‘Mary Rose’ at the Rep Stage

Did you know J. M. Barrie wrote other plays besides Peter Pan? That play has nearly eclipsed everything else he has ever done. But he’s got some good stuff.  The Admiral Critchton is my favorite, but he wrote many more.  The Rep Stage is currently running one of them: Mary Rose. You’ll recognize some touches […]

Fells Point Corner Theatre opened its 2012-2013 season Friday night with Diane Son’s Stop Kiss to a very appreciative audience.  Director Jay Gilman made some very unique, interesting choices that went over very well with those watching.  One thing that is remarkable about this opening night was that nothing went wrong.  Things always go wrong […]

Another selection of the Baltimore Playwrights Festival is playing at the Audrey Herman Spotlighters Theater. Well, three of them actually. The Things We Do…an evening of one-acts is a wonderful evening that the audience thoroughly enjoyed. The evening is directed by Lynn Morton and uses the same group of nine actors throughout.  Ms. Morton was inconsistent; sometimes […]

Flowers for Algernon is playing for one more weekend at the Elden Street Players. It’s a touching story and a production well worth seeing. The play is based on Daniel Keyes’ short story, which was also made into the 1968 movie, Charlie, starring Cliff Robertson and Claire Bloom.

If you want to see Mary Poppins at the Hippodrome, you should probably buy your tickets now. If the press night is any indication, they will be selling out fast. And not without reason. It’s possibly the most hight anticipated show of their season.
