Out on Stage

Out on Stage

Audiences are invited to enter the enchanting world of Cirque du Soleil’s “Ovo” this month at Baltimore’s Royal Farms Arena. Running from Wednesday, August 23rd – Sunday, August 27th, “Ovo” is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life. A world where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight, and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. It’s love at first sight when a gawky, quirky fly arrives in this bustling community and a fabulous ladybug catches his eye– and the feeling is mutual.

Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre (ASGT) shows no sign of slowing down as In the Heights takes the stage this month. Running from August 3rd to September 3rd, In the Heights is a heartfelt musical from Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of the Broadway sensation Hamilton. Baltimore OUTloud recently chatted with ASGT’s PR point woman Ashley Gladden, who’s also an ensemble member for the show.

The Bard’s most underappreciated classic?

The Baltimore Shakespeare Factory (BSF) brings the Bard’s comedy Love’s Labour’s Lost to audiences in Baltimore this month. Running from July 28th to August 20th, the story is set in the Kingdom of Navarre, where the current King Ferdinand has just decided to turn his court into “a little academe” and swear off all pleasures of the flesh to study for three years. However, a snag arrives in the form of the Princess of France, who is travelling to Navarre to convince the king to return the region of Aquitaine to her father, the king of France. What ensues thereafter is a tour-de-force that will leave audiences’ minds spinning.

Idina Menzel’s voice will defy both gravity and sound this month at the Model Performing Arts Center at The Lyric. To the delight of Baltimore audiences, the actress, singer, and songwriter will perform a tapestry of her most recognizable hits – as well as a few surprises – on Tuesday, July 18th at 8 p.m. The songstress recently sat down with Baltimore OUTloud to discuss her upcoming performance, her future projects, and her relationship with the LGBT community.

The metaphorical hills around Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center are once again alive as The Sound of Music wafts into the hearts and minds of theatre-goers. Running until Sunday, July 16th, the beloved musical showcases not only the innate strengths of its performers, but the raw talents of local actor Austin Colby.
