To beguile the time, look like the time. Ambitiously and bolding tackling the Bard’s Scottish tragedy as their inaugural production, Susquehanna Shakespeare Ensemble brings Macbeth to the stage in a post-apocalyptic Scotland that exists only in a theatre of the audiences’ imagination. Directed by the company’s Founding Artistic Director, Marshall B. Garrett, the spirited pacing and judicious rendering of the five-act tragedy comes smoldering over the stage in just 90 minutes. Something wicked this way runs!
He that loves to be flattered with worthy of the flattery. What if that being flattered is deserving of the flattery? Are they too then still worthy of the flattery? Perhaps even more so! Folger Theatre, in particular Director Robert Richmond, deserves a great deal of flattery for the current production of Timon of Athens, closing out the 2016/2017 season upon the stage inside the great Folger Shakespeare Library.

What if it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year? You’ve got friends who will be there for you! Right?

Something is taking its course. I don’t know how I feel today. There is no one else. There is nowhere else. It must be an absurdist cycle. Rapid Lemon Productions, under producer Max Garner, presents an evening of absurdism at The Motor House in the Station North Arts District of Charm City. A double-bill of two one-acts that are threaded loosely together in their absurdism roots, the classic Samuel Beckett’s Endgame is paired with the American premiere of Darren Donohue’s Voices in the Rubble.

Our little improvisations all too often have their consequences, and after six seasons the improvisation of boldly attempting new twists on theatre as we know it in Harford County is sadly coming to an end.

The full horror of what was to come wasn’t even an inkling in the eyes of the masses. In a stunning new evocative, jarring, emotionally blindsiding, and harrowing work making its debut as a part of the National New Play Network’s Rolling World Premiere series, Robert Schenkkan’s Building The Wall is sparking a visceral powder keg of conversation in the nation’s capital.

Something Rotten! in the state of Maryland! It’s not politics! It’s not corruption! It’s a bloody, bleeding musical! What the hell’s a musical?

Why, direct from its smashing success on The Great White Way,

Based on the book by Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela and Directed by Logan Vaughn,

The system only works if— errør— :://cødΞ does not c-c-compute. There is a GLITCH in the system.
It’s just a glitch. Ignore it. Move on.
It’s just a— .dØt, after all.
The statistical possibility of one little— .dØt— becoming the downfall of the system— why that’s impossible. Isn’t it? Pointless Theatre Company astonishes and amazes with their newest production: .dØt:: a RotoPlastic Ballet.

The transport and emergency shelter services they offer were disastrous the last time during the devastation of Sandy.
Now is a time to speak, I harken! Can my heart consent to let my tongue throw out such words? Such words as Jacobean Comedy? Quizzically oxymoronic in its nature, the notion that something humorous came out of the era of brutal bloody tragedies often circling like flagrant vultures around things like depravity and incest is preposterous. Until you see A King and No King, appearing now as the lighter half of The Incest Rep at Brave Spirits Theatre.
Let’s face it: Parma is a nasty, nasty place. It’s got people cheating on their spouses, and plots of revenge, even before it gets all incesty. Which, of course, it does, this being part of Brave Spirits’ Incest Rep, along with A King and No King, by Beaumont and Fletcher. Those Jacobeans liked their plays dark, and that’s perfect to help Brave Spirits’ pledge of “Verse and Violence”.
The most available bachelorette in Parma is the beautiful Annabella,
