1. ‘My Fair Lady’ at Kennedy Center.
“…is as close to perfection as a musical can be…” – Lynne Menefee.
Synopsis: My Fair Lady tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady.” But who is really being transformed?
2. ‘Brighton Beach Memoirs’ at Vagabond Players.
“The story line is fluid, funny and unpredictable…” – Michael Garvey.
Synopsis: Broadway’s comic master, Neil Simon, takes us back to depression-era Brooklyn where his young alter-ego, Eugene Jerome, navigates puberty and family angst with hilarious finesse.
3. ‘The Unexpected Guest’ at Laurel Mill Playhouse.
“‘The Unexpected Guest’ is wonderfully indulgent fun. If you enjoy a good mystery and like suspense, this production will provide you with both.” – Susan Brall.
Synopsis: Lost in the fog, a stranger seeks refuge in a nearby house, only to find a man shot dead and his wife standing over him with a smoking gun. But the woman’s dazed confession is anything but convincing, and the unexpected guest decides to help. Remarkably, the police clues point to a man who died two years previously, but as the ghosts of a past wrong begin to emerge, a tangled web of lies reveals family secrets and chilling motives, where the real murderer turns out to be the greatest mystery of all.
4. ‘Love and Information’ at Fells Point Corner Theatre.
“The ensemble of nine terrific actors carries the load together…” – Max Garner.
Synopsis: A collage of thought and feeling in modern times Fells Point Corner Theatre brings one of Caryl Chuchill’s most ambitious works to its stage: Love and Information. Someone sneezes. Someone can’t get a signal. Someone won’t answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone’s not ready to talk. Someone is her brother’s mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone’s never felt like this before.
5. The Gordon Center presents ‘McArdle & McKechnie Celebrate Sondheim and Hamlisch”
Andrea McArdle and Donna McKechnie, two of Broadway’s most endearing leading ladies, who starred in two of Broadway’s most iconic shows (Annie and A Chorus Line) bring their ever-vibrant talent and personal connection to Baltimore with this celebration of two of America’s most beloved musical theatre composers: Stephen Sondheim and Marvin Hamlisch.
The performance is Saturday, January 18, 2020, | 8:00 pm at The Gordon Center For Performing Arts, Owings Mills, MD.
