The Longest Winter – Lightbox Tour
7:30PM – 9:30PM
The Four Hour Day Lutherie
4305 Harford Rd, Baltimore
A crowd of friends and neighbors has gathered on one of the longest nights of the year. All is warm and cozy inside, while the cold winter wind blows just outside the door. The clatter of wine glasses and mugs filled to the brim with hot cider gives way to silence. And from that radiant silence emerges a song…For the past ten years, Robinson & Rohe have been performing The Longest Winter: A Christmas Concert and Singalong. Annually hosted in venues and house concerts throughout the Northeast, this event has become an audience favorite, a staple of the season. This year, they bring their midwinter music to your town, resplendent with a gorgeous backdrop, a triptych of paper cut light boxes designed by illustrator Andrew Benincasa. Liam Robinson and Jean Rohe bring their folk-music roots and contemporary sensibilities to songs new and old. Robinson & Rohe go deep into the Christmas repertoire: the mystical, the melancholic, the soulful, the sublime. Expect songs you may not know: haunting melodies of old Europe, joyful singalongs of the Southern US, and modern takes on the strange and ancient Christmas tale. Please join us for this special evening.

With an original, record-breaking run of 1,466 performances in 4 years at the Theatre Royal in London, 1892, Charley’s Aunt has enjoyed several revivals, translations, and film adaptations, and has charmed audiences for over a century. Two young men, Jack and Charley, scheme to catch the admiration of two young ladies by inviting them to meet Charley’s worldly and wealthy aunt for dinner. When, at the last minute, Charley’s aunt must cancel her visit, leaving the girls without a chaperone, Jack and Charley quickly convince their friend, Fancourt Babberley, to don a wig, a skirt, and a feminine air. All seems to be solved, until the real aunt turns up, and hilarity ensues. A classic farce for the whole family!
