Things to do in Baltimore this week 6/11/18

I wasn’t sure I’d get this one done in time, my flight from Germany got back like 5 hours later than planned. So yes, I missed all the Baltimore fun last week because I was frolicking around Germany but now I’m back and ready to hop right back in to things. This Wednesday I’m going to Bubbles: 22nd Annual Evening of Traditional Beverages. I love anything Champagne related, duh. Hoping to make my way to the 4th Annual Baltimore Wine Fest on Saturday. Trying to keep this an easy week as I get used to this time zone again. I’ve definitely earned one of the beers I brought back from Germany after the morning I’ve had.

Free Improv Class
7PM – 9PM
The Crown
1910 N Charles St, Baltimore
Improv is the art form used by Tina Fey, Key & Peele, Will Ferrell and countless others to create their comedy. Improv is unscripted theatre and it is contingent upon moment-to-moment discovery and flexibility. It is often comedic, but not always. It has an excellent philosophy behind it: yes and. “Yes” is about embracing the situation you are given. “And” is about capitalizing on your given circumstance. Improv relies heavily on “if, then” styles of thinking, and encourages performers to embrace spontaneity and their intuition. It is also happens to be crazy fun! There’s absolutely no cost, just show up! Anyone can do it even if you don’t consider yourself a “funny” person. Bring a friend! Bring two! The more the merrier! Like a drop-in yoga class, every class will focus on a different theme.

The Quickening by Mark Scharf at FPCT
Jun 8 – Jul 1, Fri & Sat 8PM, Sun 2PM
Fells Point Corner Theatre
251 S Ann St, Baltimore
Few things frighten and intrigue as much as a ghost story, but incorporating new, thought-provoking questions around the idea of what happens after death can turn a plot into something special. “The Quickening” takes these questions in unexpected directions certain to keep audiences at the edge of their seats. It is the story of a pregnant woman who moves into a new home in Richmond, Virginia, only to discover that all is certainly not as it seems. She faces challenge after challenge with the help of her mother, and her mathematician neighbor, all the while standing against the skepticism of her husband, who has little faith in the “unexplained”. The Quickening celebrates the courage and creativity of womanhood as they face a dire situation where science and folklore intersect at a frightening crossroads.

Life or Theatre? Written and Directed by Carly J. Bales. Based on the life and work of Charlotte Salomon. Life or Theatre? explodes the work and subconscious of the 20th century expressionist painter Charlotte Salomon on stage, fusing her autobiographical prose and expressionist painting with classical music, cinema, and theatre into a singular expression of her self – a demand by a young woman to exist in a world that demanded otherwise.

The Quickening by Mark Scharf at FPCT
Jun 8 – Jul 1, Fri & Sat 8PM, Sun 2PM
Fells Point Corner Theatre
251 S Ann St, Baltimore
Few things frighten and intrigue as much as a ghost story, but incorporating new, thought-provoking questions around the idea of what happens after death can turn a plot into something special. “The Quickening” takes these questions in unexpected directions certain to keep audiences at the edge of their seats. It is the story of a pregnant woman who moves into a new home in Richmond, Virginia, only to discover that all is certainly not as it seems. She faces challenge after challenge with the help of her mother, and her mathematician neighbor, all the while standing against the skepticism of her husband, who has little faith in the “unexplained”. The Quickening celebrates the courage and creativity of womanhood as they face a dire situation where science and folklore intersect at a frightening crossroads.

The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity
May 31 – Jun 17, Fri & Sat 8PM, Sun 4PM
Cohesion Theatre Company
923 S. East Avenue, Baltimore
A timely satire that probes that nature of cultural stereotypes in our collective consciousness, The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity follows Macedonio Guerra, also known as “Mace,” a Puerto Rican wrestler from the Bronx, who is constantly the “jobber,” or the fall guy in one of the biggest television wrestling companies in the country. As Mace travels through the ranks and to the top of the world of professional wrestling as entertainment, the audience is taken on a journey through notions of race, culture, xenophobia, and the American Dream.

Creative Alliance

Born in 1952 in Cottonwood, Arizona, Junior Brown discovered a guitar in his grandparent’s attic at age seven. He spent the next several years woodshedding with records and the radio. Coming out of his teenage year, he turned pro, playing Country and Western guitar in clubs across the southwest. “I played more nights in honkytonks during the 70’s and 80’s than most musicians will see in a lifetime I did so many years of that, night after night, four sets a night, 15 minute breaks; I mean after that, you gotta get good or get out.”
