Celebrity Interviews

Leslie Grossman loves Baltimore like a vampire craves blood

“American Horror Story: Cult,” the seventh season of Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series, premiered this month on FX, taking aim at the current political landscape in America. “Cult” explores the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election and tackles the divisive reality of the US today. Joining the cast of “AHS” powerhouses Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Cheyenne Jackson is actress Leslie Grossman. Grossman recently chatted with Baltimore OUTloud to discuss her upcoming role in “Cult,” her love for Bravo’s “Real Housewives,” and her Baltimore connection.

Fresh energy and vision at Baltimore Choral Arts

Ella Fitzgerald once said, “Music is the universal language... it brings people closer together.” No one is more fluent in that language than Baltimore Choral Arts Society’s newly named musical director Anthony Blake Clark. A conductor and composer who’s led choral and orchestral ensembles in the US and Europe, Clark is the third musical director in Baltimore Choral Arts’ 51-year history. The Texan-native recently chatted with Baltimore OUTloud about his passion for music, his new position, and his vision for infusing Baltimore communities with music.

Life’s Her Cabaret

An interview with Bridget Everett

A fixture on the alt-cabaret circuit for years, Bridget Everett is the definition of a force to be reckoned with. Possessing a voice that rattles walls and windows, Everett is a dynamic singer, where she’s performing solo or with her band, Tender Moments. Currently Everett can be seen giving an outstanding dramatic performance as Barb, mother to the titular Patti in the movie Patti Cake$ (Fox Searchlight), written and directed by Geremy Jasper. I spoke with Bridget in August 2017, shortly before the film opened in theaters.

Wright on Target

An interview with singer Lizz Wright

Dividing her time between the mountains of North Carolina and a classroom in Chicago, wherever Georgia-native and singer/songwriter Lizz Wright is, there’s music. Here’s the truth about Wright, she never disappoints. Whether she’s introducing listeners to her own spirited and powerful original compositions or performing singular interpretations of the work of others, each of her six studio albums, including her latest, Grace (Concord), will lift you up and knock you out. I spoke with Wright in the summer of 2017.

Cyndi Lauper’s Detour

An interview with the diva great

Known for putting her money where her mouth is, versatile Grammy and Tony Award-winning diva Cyndi Lauper is an outspoken supporter of the LGBT community. But it was her singing voice and distinctive fashion sense that initially caught our eye. After forays into pop, dance music, standards, and the blues, Lauper lends her remarkable vocal range to a set of country numbers on Detour (Sire). Joined by country legends Willie Nelson and Emmylou Harris, Lauper leaves her “unusual” mark on mid-20th century country classics, including Wanda Jackson’s “Funnel of Love,” Patsy Cline’s “Walking after Midnight,” and “I Fall to Pieces.” She knows when to use country’s trademark catch-in-the-throat on heartbreakers “Misty Blue” and “Begging to You.” Duets with a yodeling Jewel (“I Want to be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart”) and Alison Krauss (“Hard Candy Christmas”) are also standouts. I spoke with Lauper, who is embarking on a concert tour with Rod Stewart in June 2017.
