Things to do in Baltimore this week 9/24/18

Sorry this is late, I was busy moving in to my new apartment yesterday and it’s still a bit chaotic in here. Who wants to help me unpack, anyone? Anyways, this week I’ll be busy dealing with the apartment but I always have time for Brews and Board Games at The Windup Space on Tuesday. Since I’m living in up in Mount Vernon now I’m definitely going to attend The 3rd Annual ParktoberFest! Well, wish me luck, I’m going to see if any of my dishes broke.

Sawdust and Tinsel
Sep 22, 24, 27
Charles Revival Series
1711 N Charles St, Baltimore
“Ingmar Bergman presents the battle of the sexes as a ramshackle, grotesque carnival in ‘Sawdust and Tinsel’, one of the late master’s most vivid early works. The story of the charged relationship between a turn-of-the-century traveling circus owner and his performer girlfriend, the film features dreamlike detours and twisted psychosexual power plays that presage the director’s ‘Smiles of a Summer Night’ and ‘The Seventh Seal’, works that would soon change the landscape of art cinema forever.” (Janus Films) 1953 Ingmar Bergman 1.33:1 B&W DCP 93 min. In Swedish with English subtitles.

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.

E.T. Senator Theatre
Sept 26 & 30, Oct 1 & 2
The Senator Theatre
5904 York Rd, Baltimore
“‘E.T., the Extra Terrestrial’ may be the best Disney film Disney never made. Captivating, endearingly optimistic and magical at times, Steven Spielberg’s fantasy about a stranded alien from outer space protected by three kids until it can arrange for passage home….is not first and foremost an effects picture, but rather a charming ‘Twilight Zone’-like fable which reminds by turns of ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ ‘Mary Poppins,’ a benign switch on ‘King Kong’ and a variation of Spielberg’s own ‘Close Encounters.'” (Variety)

Helen Money at Ottobar
8PM – ?
Ottobar
2549 N Howard St, Baltimore
Alison Chesley, known also by her stage name Helen Money, is a classically trained cellist who draws her inspiration not only from Pablo Casals and Shostakovich but Jimi Hendrix and The Minutemen. She began playing the cello at the age of 8 in her hometown of Los Angeles, and through her undergrad and graduate studies, steered a course towards a career in classical music. While in Chicago attending Northwestern University, however, her focus shifted towards the rock music she had always loved. Alison decided to go full steam ahead in pursuit of a career outside of classical music. She began a busy period as a solo artist, especially on Chicago’s then thriving studio scene, where she played on over 100 albums. She began composing music for films, theater and dance including two world premiers with the modernist icon Shirley Mordine. And, in 2007, Alison wrote the first Helen Money album and released it on her own label, Cellobird Records. Since then, she’s recorded three additional albums as Helen Money, the latest of which, Become Zero, is available on Thrill Jockey Records.

The production begins with a traditional salutation to the divine, followed by a lyrical composition incorporating brisk rhythmic patterns of footwork, unique formations and graceful movements. This transcends to a vibrant and powerful “Jugalbandhi” element – the dialogue between the percussionist and the dancer followed by a pure classical piece that showcases some of the traditional aspects of this unique dance form. Bhavna concludes with a musical piece where all emotions are elevated and surrendered to the divine.

String and Shadow’s 2018 fall touring show ESPERUS: The Janitor follows Esperus, a lowly mustached employee of the MegaRealm corporation. MegaRealm is the biggest, baddest corporation in the lucrative business of World-Creation. Brought to you by four bodies, eight hands, and a talkative string ESPERUS must save the old world, our world, from neutralization by company CEOs who seek to destroy it to make room for a creepy tech future. The audience, equipped with over-sized magical objects, helps ESPERUS navigate through the convoluted floors of the MegaRealm building and, hopefully, save the world.”

Magic Beans – Tweed at The 8×10
8PM – 1:30AM
The 8×10
10 E Cross St, Baltimore
Magic Beans (Scott Hachey, Casey Russell, Chris Duffy and Cody Wales) have steadily built upon their national notoriety in a very short period of time with a passion for music that is as infectious as their songs. Hailing from Denver, their development has been aided by the warm hearth of the Colorado music scene, and quickly setting themselves apart from the pack as one of the state’s premier acts. Their new album, “Casino Cabaret” (available March 16th), is titled in homage to the vintage sign that hangs above Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom located in the Five Points area of Denver. The venue has served as the heart beat of the Denver music scene for decades under different monikers. Its a place where the legends of jazz, soul, and funk found a common stage, and inspired the Magic Beans to craft an album capturing the different styles and genres that can be heard any given night down in Five Points. With “Casino Cabaret”, the band looks to bring the heart, the vibes, and the feelings of those Denver nights coast to coast.

Lysistrata. . . a play for the 21st Century!
Sep 21-Oct 14, Fri & Sat 8PM, Sun 2PM
Spotlighters Theatre
817 Saint Paul St, Baltimore
Lysistrata, originally written and performed in 411 BCE, is considered by many to be the greatest work of the ancient comic playwright Aristophanes. In the play, as part of her extraordinary mission to stop a grinding, never‑ending war, Athenian matron Lysistrata convinces the women of Greece to withhold sex and to capture the Acropolis, thus bankrupting the war effort and reducing men to comic deprived desperation. Bawdy, unrestrained and surprisingly modern in its world view, Lysistrata is performed in a recent translation by Sarah Ruden that critics call “a perfect Lysistrata for the new millennium.”

She Stoops to Conquer by Oliver Goldsmith
Sep 28-Oct 21
Chesapeake Shakespeare Company
7 South Calvert Street, Baltimore
Kate Hardcastle has a love problem: Her prospective fiancé is tongue-tied around women of high class but a charmer with the help. Silliness and satire follow when he mistakes Miss Hardcastle for a serving maid – and she decides to play along. Enjoy witty and warm comic feast of practical jokes and romantic mix-ups. First performed in 1773, She Stoops to Conquer broke new ground, steering British comedy away from the sentimental or genteel, and giving the audience a “low” or “laughing comedy” that skewered society’s pretensions. A young lady of country upbringing is the heroine, outwitting city folk and her scheming elders. In that bygone era before a lady could get a background check of her suitor through Google, charming Miss Hardcastle goes undercover to learn more about Marlow, the man her dad hopes she’ll marry. A smash hit at its debut, She Stoops to Conquer still delivers the laughs.

BIG Time – How do you know when you’ve truly succeeded? The answer is when the Baltimore Improv Group invites you to have your life memorialized in a series of made up, totally unprepared comedy scenes celebrating you! Come join a hand picked cast of BIG’s best improvisers as they comedically revere some of Baltimore’s most important movers and shakers. Sean Dynan holds his Master of Music in Saxophone Performance from The Peabody Institute, has worked professionally in theater, film, and TV, advanced the ranks of the Court of Master Sommeliers, and worked at some of Baltimore’s top restaurants. Seeking to marry all of his passions into one entrepreneurial venture, Sean is dedicating this next chapter of his life to the friend that has magically woven its way throughout the last decade of his career: cannabis. Both by working as a patient consultant at Mt. Vernon’s neighborhood ReLeaf Shop and founding his own company, Sean seeks to push the envelope in Maryland’s current medical cannabis market as a self proclaimed “pot somm” exploring the intersection of (hospitality x weed) as we hope to usher in the next logical step of the recreational cannabis market.

Lysistrata. . . a play for the 21st Century!
Sep 21-Oct 14, Fri & Sat 8PM, Sun 2PM
Spotlighters Theatre
817 Saint Paul St, Baltimore
Lysistrata, originally written and performed in 411 BCE, is considered by many to be the greatest work of the ancient comic playwright Aristophanes. In the play, as part of her extraordinary mission to stop a grinding, never‑ending war, Athenian matron Lysistrata convinces the women of Greece to withhold sex and to capture the Acropolis, thus bankrupting the war effort and reducing men to comic deprived desperation. Bawdy, unrestrained and surprisingly modern in its world view, Lysistrata is performed in a recent translation by Sarah Ruden that critics call “a perfect Lysistrata for the new millennium.”

She Stoops to Conquer by Oliver Goldsmith
Sep 28-Oct 21
Chesapeake Shakespeare Company
7 South Calvert Street, Baltimore
Kate Hardcastle has a love problem: Her prospective fiancé is tongue-tied around women of high class but a charmer with the help. Silliness and satire follow when he mistakes Miss Hardcastle for a serving maid – and she decides to play along. Enjoy witty and warm comic feast of practical jokes and romantic mix-ups. First performed in 1773, She Stoops to Conquer broke new ground, steering British comedy away from the sentimental or genteel, and giving the audience a “low” or “laughing comedy” that skewered society’s pretensions. A young lady of country upbringing is the heroine, outwitting city folk and her scheming elders. In that bygone era before a lady could get a background check of her suitor through Google, charming Miss Hardcastle goes undercover to learn more about Marlow, the man her dad hopes she’ll marry. A smash hit at its debut, She Stoops to Conquer still delivers the laughs.

“‘E.T., the Extra Terrestrial’ may be the best Disney film Disney never made. Captivating, endearingly optimistic and magical at times, Steven Spielberg’s fantasy about a stranded alien from outer space protected by three kids until it can arrange for passage home….is not first and foremost an effects picture, but rather a charming ‘Twilight Zone’-like fable which reminds by turns of ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ ‘Mary Poppins,’ a benign switch on ‘King Kong’ and a variation of Spielberg’s own ‘Close Encounters.'” (Variety)
