POP: Who Shot Andy Warhol?
Jan 16 – Feb 1, Thurs – Sat 8PM
StillPointe Theatre
1915 Maryland Ave. Baltimore
Join Stillpointe Theatre as we launch our new performance venue with this radical,new, Baltimore Premiere piece of Musical Theatre “POP”: WHO SHOT ANDY WARHOL? Written by the young newcomers Maggie-Kate Coleman (book and lyrics) and Anna K. Jacobs (music), “Pop!” does its energetic best to simulate the freewheeling fun of the Factory while positioning the speed queens and superstars within the tidy frame of a musical comedy. Cleverly conceived, vividly performed and professionally put together, it has moments of dizzy brilliance. But ultimately and probably inevitably, “Pop!” comes across as canned camp, as have so many other attempts to replay the crazy late-1960s groove on stage and film. In trying to show both the madcap excesses and the psychic cost of Warhol freakdom, the show turns these fabled figures into alternately cute and cranky cartoons. This Production is 80 minutes long with no intermission. Street Parking, and a “pay to park” parking lot is located directly across from the Theatre. Doors open at 7:30pm.

Love & Information by Caryl Churchill at FPCT
Jan 10 – Feb 2, Fri & Sat 8PM, Sun 2PM
Fells Point Corner Theatre
251 S Ann St, Baltimore
Fells Point Corner Theatre brings one of Caryl Chuchill’s most ambitious works to its stage: Love and Information. A fast paced collage of short scenes, the ensemble cast searches for meaning in a world of broken communication and constantly changing technology. Each scene deals with the various ways we receive and give information in contemporary society, but still manages to capture familiar and human moments of confusion, deep forlorn, and intense joy; moments that disappear before we even realize it. Fandom and torture, sex and terror, parenthood and loss, Churchill’s kaleidoscope of contemporary life is an enjoyable and gripping experience that will leave audiences delightfully brimming with existential dread!

Wendel Patrick Quartet
8PM – 11PM
Creative Alliance
3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Deep musical power from one of Baltimore’s sonic visionaries. Wendel Patrick has been referred to as “David Foster Wallace reincarnated as a sound engineer” by Urbanite Magazine and as “wildly talented” by the Baltimore Sun. He has been referred to by XLR8R magazine as “a hip-hop producer that could easily make any fan of Squarepusher, Boards of Canada, or Madlib flip out.” The alter-ego of classical and jazz pianist Kevin Gift, Wendel Patrick is rapidly making a name for himself as a producer to be recognized. In the February 2018 issue of Baltimore Magazine, Wendel Patrick was named one of 30 Baltimore Visionaries and labeled as “one of the most influential and omnipresent figures in the local arts scene”. His five albums, Sound:, Forthcoming, JDWP, Passage, and Travel were all produced without the use of sampling, with Patrick playing every note of every instrument. What is perhaps most astounding and perplexing to listeners is that there are actually no instruments…he crafts all of the instruments, and every note, electronically.

Baltimore Improv Group
1727 North Charles Street, Baltimore
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. About Kim Crout : Originally from Annapolis, I moved to Baltimore City for college and my job and stayed because the seafood is just as good as back home. I’m the Program Manager at a local nonprofit, the Maryland Book Bank, and my days are spent giving away free books to kids around the city (aka the best job ever). I’m a dog mom to two rambunctious pups (Gus and Remi) and have the coolest fiancé in the world that indulges my obsession with Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland and agrees that the structural integrity of our house should be reinforced by stacks of books. In my spare time I like to bargain shop for kitschy home decor, explore the books, nooks, and crannies of Baltimore and help my fiancé in the kitchen by stirring something every once in a while.

POP: Who Shot Andy Warhol?
Jan 16 – Feb 1, Thurs – Sat 8PM
StillPointe Theatre
1915 Maryland Ave. Baltimore
Join Stillpointe Theatre as we launch our new performance venue with this radical,new, Baltimore Premiere piece of Musical Theatre “POP”: WHO SHOT ANDY WARHOL? Written by the young newcomers Maggie-Kate Coleman (book and lyrics) and Anna K. Jacobs (music), “Pop!” does its energetic best to simulate the freewheeling fun of the Factory while positioning the speed queens and superstars within the tidy frame of a musical comedy. Cleverly conceived, vividly performed and professionally put together, it has moments of dizzy brilliance. But ultimately and probably inevitably, “Pop!” comes across as canned camp, as have so many other attempts to replay the crazy late-1960s groove on stage and film. In trying to show both the madcap excesses and the psychic cost of Warhol freakdom, the show turns these fabled figures into alternately cute and cranky cartoons. This Production is 80 minutes long with no intermission. Street Parking, and a “pay to park” parking lot is located directly across from the Theatre. Doors open at 7:30pm.

Fandom and torture, sex and terror, parenthood and loss, Churchill’s kaleidoscope of contemporary life is an enjoyable and gripping experience that will leave audiences delightfully brimming with existential dread!

Tsibele (“Onion” in Yiddish) is Klezmer band, who reminds us that in our politically volatile time, we can look into our history for songs, messages, and stories to inform contemporary communities of resistance. Tsibele’s Yiddish repertoire explores themes of life under capitalism, tyranny, and heteropatriarchy. Tsibele’s music explores the limits of the klezmer. These songs have a powerful resonance. Sung in Yiddish, they seem to be infused with extra historical heft, bringing singers and listeners closer together. When the group sings songs like Dem Nayntn Yanuar, with the translated words “Destroy the tyrants who are sucking our blood. They suck our blood like it’s the best wine/The czar and the government should go to hell— And they will” .although sung in a different language, from a different time, are heard loud and clear in our present day.
