An Evening with MIPSO
8PM – 11PM
Creative Alliance
3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Mipso is born from North Carolina’s broad range of disparate musical influences. Their distinctly unique sound an undeniable alchemy of the historical musical traditions of the rural south and their progressive home of Chapel Hill. A discernible and rising force in the upstart musical genre known as Americana, Mipso’s music is lush and forward moving. A tender, harmony-laden river runs through the band’s core, but the rocky outcroppings change with every album outing. Appalachia melds with modern alt-country, hints of folk-rock are leavened with a sly and subversive sense of humor, and underneath it all is a genuine and moving passion for the ever- evolving traditions of Americana. With the recent release of their fifth album, Edges Run, Mipso continues the complex dance of looking back and moving forward with grace and beauty.

Love Letters – a Fund Raiser for Spotlighters!
Aug 2 – 18, Fri & Sat 8PM, Sun 2PM
Spotlighters Theatre
817 Saint Paul St, Baltimore
Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, both born to wealth and position, are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. Romantically attached, they continue to exchange letters through the boarding school and college years—where Andy goes on to excel at Yale and law school, while Melissa flunks out of a series of “good schools”. While Andy is off at war Melissa marries, but her attachment to Andy remains strong and she continues to keep in touch as he marries, becomes a successful attorney, gets involved in politics and, eventually, is elected to the U.S. Senate. Meanwhile, her marriage in tatters, Melissa dabbles in art and gigolos, drinks more than she should, and becomes estranged from her children. Eventually she and Andy do become involved in a brief affair, but it is really too late for both of them. However Andy’s last letter, written to her mother after Melissa’s untimely death, makes it eloquently clear how much they really meant, and gave to, each other over the years—physically apart, perhaps, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.

Crusade – a world premiere play by Bruce Bonafede
Aug 9 – 18, Thurs – Sat 8PM, Sun 3PM
Baltimore Theatre Project
45 W Preston St, Baltimore
The third show of Rapid Lemon Productions’ 2019 “Season of Belief” is a collaboration with the Baltimore Playwrights Festival: CRUSADE, a world premiere by local playwright Bruce Bonafede. It is the future. The takeover of the federal government by Christian fundamentalists, and their assault on the Constitution, has led to civil war between opposing elements of the U.S. military. On reconnaissance patrol in the Rocky Mountains, an Army squad is forced to take cover in an isolated cabin owned by a former professor who now wants only to be left alone. The four members of the squad each have their own reason for being part of the anti-Christian resistance, including the squad’s female member, an expert sniper on a personal mission of vengeance. The situation is complicated when the squad captures a Christian deserter, and further complicated when their initial intention to take him back for interrogation is upended by their discovery that enemy troops are moving into the valley in overwhelming force, clearly in preparation for an attack on their base. This chain of events tests their character and is resolved in a moment of violence that seals their fate.

Love Letters – a Fund Raiser for Spotlighters!
Aug 2 – 18, Fri & Sat 8PM, Sun 2PM
Spotlighters Theatre
817 Saint Paul St, Baltimore
Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, both born to wealth and position, are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. Romantically attached, they continue to exchange letters through the boarding school and college years—where Andy goes on to excel at Yale and law school, while Melissa flunks out of a series of “good schools”. While Andy is off at war Melissa marries, but her attachment to Andy remains strong and she continues to keep in touch as he marries, becomes a successful attorney, gets involved in politics and, eventually, is elected to the U.S. Senate. Meanwhile, her marriage in tatters, Melissa dabbles in art and gigolos, drinks more than she should, and becomes estranged from her children. Eventually she and Andy do become involved in a brief affair, but it is really too late for both of them. However Andy’s last letter, written to her mother after Melissa’s untimely death, makes it eloquently clear how much they really meant, and gave to, each other over the years—physically apart, perhaps, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.

Crusade – a world premiere play by Bruce Bonafede
Aug 9 – 18, Thurs – Sat 8PM, Sun 3PM
Baltimore Theatre Project
45 W Preston St, Baltimore
The third show of Rapid Lemon Productions’ 2019 “Season of Belief” is a collaboration with the Baltimore Playwrights Festival: CRUSADE, a world premiere by local playwright Bruce Bonafede. It is the future. The takeover of the federal government by Christian fundamentalists, and their assault on the Constitution, has led to civil war between opposing elements of the U.S. military. On reconnaissance patrol in the Rocky Mountains, an Army squad is forced to take cover in an isolated cabin owned by a former professor who now wants only to be left alone. The four members of the squad each have their own reason for being part of the anti-Christian resistance, including the squad’s female member, an expert sniper on a personal mission of vengeance. The situation is complicated when the squad captures a Christian deserter, and further complicated when their initial intention to take him back for interrogation is upended by their discovery that enemy troops are moving into the valley in overwhelming force, clearly in preparation for an attack on their base. This chain of events tests their character and is resolved in a moment of violence that seals their fate.
