Things to do in Baltimore: February 2022 Theater

Hi friends. I took a break the last few months with the uptick of COVID and the holidays. Due to the recent loss of a pet, I’m still not quite ready to dive back in to doing this weekly but there is is a lot of great theater going on in February so I wanted to make sure you don’t miss out. I went to the opening of of Behold, a Negress at Everyman Theatre last night and it was really good – plus the set was beautiful.

Angel Street (Gaslight)
February 4 – February 20
Fells Point Corner Theatre
A neo-Victorian Gothic suspense thriller set in 1880s London that explores the abusive tactic of gaslighting, the name of which is derived from this play. A Broadway hit first produced on the West End and also known as Gaslight, the play tells the story of the Manninghams, who live on Angel Street in 19th century London. As the curtain rises, all appears to be the essence of Victorian tranquility. It is soon apparent, however, that Mr. Manningham, a suavely handsome man, is slowly driving his gentle, devoted wife, Bella, to the brink of insanity with an insinuating kindness that masks more sinister motives. While he is out, Mrs. Manningham has an unexpected caller: amiable, paternal Inspector Rough from Scotland Yard. Rough is convinced that Mr. Manningham is a homicidal maniac wanted for a murder committed fifteen years earlier in this very house. Gradually, the inspector restores Bella’s confidence in herself and, as the evidence against Manningham unfolds, the author has built and sustained some of the most brilliant, suspenseful sequences in modern theatre.

The Youngers yearn for a better life outside the confines of their tenement on Chicago’s south side. When a means of escape presents itself, they each come to realize the “American Dream” can mean different things to different people in the exact same family. So, whose dreams come true, and whose get deferred? Lorraine Hansberry’s 1959 masterpiece is not only a groundbreaking portrait of the Black experience in America, but a timeless exploration of how far a family will (or won’t) go to stay together.

Is Edward Snowden Single?
February 18 – March 12
Single Carrot Theatre at The Windup Space
Mimi and April are best friends. And actresses. And totally hot. And talented and smart and so brave, duh. When self-absorbed Mimi is faced with a choice to live with integrity, what decision will she make? Edward Snowden tells her “it takes a lot of courage to be selfish,” or maybe she imagined that. Frolic in the reckless joy, drunken nights, and rites of passage of millennial youth. How long can it last, and at what point do we have to let go?

God of Carnage
February 18 – March 13
Vagabond Players
A comedy of manners…without the manners, Reza’s Tony Award-winning Broadway sensation offers up the guilty pleasure of watching a pair of upper middle-class marriages go boom. The playground altercation between two eleven-year-olds brings together four parents who think they can resolve things in a civilized, adult manner. BUT, as the evening progresses, and the drinks flow, the gloves come off and pure animal instinct reigns supreme.
