Things to do in Baltimore this week 12/11/17

I think I had too much fun last night at On The Rocks. Nonetheless, I’ve pulled myself together to bring you this week’s fun stuff. My schedule this week is pretty theatre heavy. I’m super excited to go see Mr Burns: A Post-Electric Play on Monday.  The show is sold out that night but please try to see it a different night. Tuesday is the New Galapagos Gala: A Soiree Among the Specimens to support H.T. Darling’s Incredible Musæum. Seriously, if you haven’t gone to experience H.T. Darling’s Incredible Musæum you are missing out! On Sunday I’m going to see The Revolutionists at Everyman Theatre. Words cannot describe how much I am looking forward to seeing this play. It’s not every day that Charlotte Corday gets some recognition. You too can experience all the awesome theatre that Baltimore has to offer!
