Every good story has an element of romance, comedy, tension, and maybe even murder. This rings true as A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder comes to Baltimore’s Hippodrome Theatre. Running from December 27th to January 1st, audiences are introduced to Monty Navarro, a distant heir to the D’Ysquith fortune and ninth in line for the Earldom of Highhurst. Monty will do whatever it takes to skip to the front of the line and inherit the fortune regardless of who stands in his way.
The beloved holiday classic, A Christmas Carol, will warm the hearts of audiences just in time for the holidays this month at Toby’s Dinner Theatre. Running until January 8th, 2017, A Christmas Carol is the musical adaptation of the timeless holiday story by Charles Dickens. Baltimore OUTloud recently sat down with David Bosely Reynolds who plays Ebenezer Scrooge.
Take a moment and think back to the tear-stained diary entries of your ten-year-old self. The folded and faded letters from your teenage youth. The mortifying moments of your past that give you a moment’s twinge and a chuckle when you recount them as an adult. That’s just the effect that audiences will witness at Mortified: Baltimore. Hailed by Newsweek as a “cultural phenomenon,” Mortified: Baltimore is the adult recounting of their most embarrassing and treasured childhood artifacts. Performing Saturday, December 10th at 8 p.m. in the Ideal Arts Space in Hampden, audiences can revel in the humorous awkwardness that binds us all from our youth.
Representations of the 1% are alive and well in Center Stage’s revival of Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Christopher Hampten running now through December 23. Based on the novel by Choderlos de Laclos, the plot revolves around the machinations of the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont who spin a tangled weave of deceptions and lies throughout France in the mid 1780’s shortly before the French Revolution (1789). The Marquise—played deftly by Suzanne Douglas—is hell bent on revenge and will stop at nothing to achieve her ends. Brent Harris dexterously inhabits the role of the Vicomte who seduces women from Paris to the countryside as sport until he ultimately falls in love with a prudish Mademoiselle—La Presidente de Tourvel played piously by Gillian Williams. Games and chaos ensues leading to a dual and a lot of death. Plot sound familiar? You may remember it in the 1999 hit Cruel Intentions or the 1989 film Dangerous Liaisons starring Glenn Close and John Malkovich.
