Things to do in Baltimore this week 3/11/19

This is the cold that wouldn’t end, it just goes on and on my friends. I feel like I’ve been sick forever. I missed out on a lot of fun last week, still taking it easy this week but attending a few shows. Don’t miss Dinner with Friends at Everyman Theatre. It opens this week and you know I’ll be there. I’m also making it to the last showing of The Effect by Lucy Prebble at Fells Point Corner Theatre on Sunday. Sunday of course is St. Patrick’s Day. I could have listed the 800 bars that are having specials, but who has that time? Pick a bar, it’s having a special, pretty much guaranteed. Leprechauns, green beer, wear green, don’t get pinched, etc. I need a nap.

March Taste & Tour
6PM – 7PM
The Engineers Club
11 West Mount Vernon Place, Baltimore
During the late-1800s Gilded Age, you needed to secure an invitation from Mary Frick Garrett Jacobs—a sign that you had been deemed worthy to rub elbows with society’s upper echelon—in order to visit the mansion. Today, however, you don’t need to belong to the upper crust, or even an invitation, to see the Garrett-Jacobs Mansion. You just need a ticket. For Mary Frick—often referred to as “Baltimore’s Mrs. Astor”—her lifelong passion project was the Mount Vernon Place mansion that now bears her name. To create the Garrett-Jacobs Mansion, she ultimately combined three large rowhomes into one 40-room showcase that featured the work of two prominent architects: Stanford White and John Russell Pope. Sign up for our new Taste & Tour series, during which you can enjoy a docent-led tour of the mansion, learn its history, and enjoy a signature cocktail or sparkling water.

Mobile Unit Presents: Antigone
Mar 14-17, Thu 7:30PM, Fr & Sat 8PM, Sat & Sun 2PM
Baltimore Center Stage
700 North Calvert Street, Baltimore
A civil war has just ended, throwing the city into chaos and tearing families apart. Desperate to establish peace and order, the victorious leader, Creon, has issued strict new laws. But his niece, Antigone, resists these decrees for violating spiritual law and threatening her right to honor the dead. With lives, loves, and justice on the line, and two competing truths on a collision course, can the personal and the political co-exist? What happens when the good of the many clashes with the good of a few? Who wins when the laws of men confront the laws of nature? And can one still, small voice really shake the foundations of power? The Baltimore Center Stage Mobile Unit presents a freshly reimagined production of Sophocles’ timeless drama, directed by Daniel Bryant (Twelfth Night, Endgame)—set in the not-so-distant present, past, and future, and featuring original poetry by 2016 National Poetry Slam Champion (and local Baltimorean), Lady Brion.

HOW FAR WOULD YOU FOLLOW YOUR PASSION? What is the cost when we sacrifice truth for success? Can radical love be pious, or merely provocative? Does every religion sell God for a price?

The latest hit from the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of A Civil War Christmas, The Baltimore Waltz, and How I Learned to Drive, this highly acclaimed and award-winning drama pays homage to artists ahead of their time and doomed to pay the price. Content Advisory: Based on the real-life story behind Sholem Asch’s controversial Yiddish drama God of Vengeance, this play is suited for middle school ages and up.

Mobile Unit Presents: Antigone
Mar 14-17, Thu 7:30PM, Fr & Sat 8PM, Sat & Sun 2PM
Baltimore Center Stage
700 North Calvert Street, Baltimore
A civil war has just ended, throwing the city into chaos and tearing families apart. Desperate to establish peace and order, the victorious leader, Creon, has issued strict new laws. But his niece, Antigone, resists these decrees for violating spiritual law and threatening her right to honor the dead. With lives, loves, and justice on the line, and two competing truths on a collision course, can the personal and the political co-exist? What happens when the good of the many clashes with the good of a few? Who wins when the laws of men confront the laws of nature? And can one still, small voice really shake the foundations of power? The Baltimore Center Stage Mobile Unit presents a freshly reimagined production of Sophocles’ timeless drama, directed by Daniel Bryant (Twelfth Night, Endgame)—set in the not-so-distant present, past, and future, and featuring original poetry by 2016 National Poetry Slam Champion (and local Baltimorean), Lady Brion.

Biliana Voutchkova and Susan Alcorn
8PM & 9:30PM
An die Musik
409 N Charles St, Baltimore
Susan Alcorn is a great player who has mastered and redefined an unlikely instrument. With an exquisite touch she invoked it’s history, extended its emotional and ethereal strengths and explored its microtonal possibilities, drawing it out of the contexts that traditionally render it invisible, or generic, and into its own mature discourse, reminding improvisers that ‘free’ includes the right to be romantic, melodic and four to the bar.
Biliana Voutchkova is a thoroughly engaged composer-performer/interpreter whose work combines regular performances of major solo violin/ensemble works, new compositions by contemporary composers often written for her, and her own work with performative, long length formats, real time composition and improvisation. Her research as a creative artist spans the widest possible range of sound/music/movement and extends the sonic and technical capacities of her instrument evolving into the development of a highly individual musical language.

Les Poules à Colin: Next Generation Quebecois Musicians
8PM – 10:30PM
Creative Alliance
3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Taking their name from a traditional song, Les Poules à Colin were raised behind the scenes at folk festivals, learning their craft at kitchen parties amongst some of Quebec’s finest trad musicians – which included their parents – in a region famous for its living heritage. The group’s sound is a seamless blend of their strong folk upbringing and North American influences that range from old-time to jazz, with some provocative and moody effects. Their repertoire is a mix of original and traditional pieces, primarily in French but with some English compositions, and reveals gorgeous vocal, instrumental and rhythmic prowess. Their adaptations of traditional songs from Quebec, Brittany or Louisiana speak eloquently to their generation while retaining the beauty of timeless music. Fiddle, guitar, lapsteel, banjo, mandolin, piano, bass and foot percussion form a rich and varied backdrop for their inventive arrangements. Les Poules à Colin reveal a unique and modern perspective on traditional Québec culture.
