- ‘Perfect Arrangement’ at Fells Point Corner Theatre.
“Director Patrick Gorirossi has brilliantly brought the piece to life, expertly assembling a team of professionals both on stage and off.” – Timoth David Copney.
Synopsis: It’s 1950 and new colors are being added to the Red Scare. Two U.S. State Department employees, Bob and Norma, have been tasked with identifying “sexual deviants” within their ranks. There’s just one problem: Both Bob and Norma are gay, and have married each other’s partners as a carefully constructed cover. Inspired by the true story of the earliest stirrings of the mainstream American gay rights movement, madcap classic sitcom-style laughs give way to provocative drama as two All-American couples are forced to stare down the closet door.

“This production is a surprisingly refreshing treat that is easy to enjoy.” – Brian Bochicchio.
Synopsis: A tribute to the women of 1960’s rock, pop and soul music—from the Shirelles to the Supremes, from Diana Ross to Aretha Franklin, from Tina Turner to Janis Joplin—this musical celebrates the talent, soul and power of the women who characterized a decade and whose legacies are still celebrated around the world. Join us for this incredible tribute musical and reminisce with hit songs like “Where the Boys Are,” “Natural Woman,” “Proud Mary,” “Cry Baby,” “Chain of Fools,” and more!

4.‘Dear Evan Hansen’ at The Kennedy Center.
“…a profound and important musical of our time.” – Lynne Menefee.
Synopsis: A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in. Dear Evan Hansen is the deeply personal and profoundly contemporary musical about life and the way we live it.
