Picture it! Schlimer, medieval Germany— the roof is made of dirty thatch, there are rats nibbling on stinky cheese, there are feces and rotting vegetables in the streets— okay, maybe don’t picture it. Picture instead two dedicated, earnest, devoted, passionate guys who just want to actualize their dream of writing a big flashy Broadway musical and have it produced by a rich Broadway producer. Turn tables, puppets, helicopters, people who used to be famous,

While Italy may seem worlds away, here in Baltimore we are able to experience our own little taste of the Old World culture in downtown’s Little Italy. With all of its independent restaurants, featuring charming atmospheres and top-notch foods, Little Italy is one of the most romantic places that Charm City has to offer.
Love is a delicious and vicious act. And it is devouring up its audience over in Little Italy. Hilarity never landed so well as it does with the inaugural production of a brand new company called Epic Productions Inc.
