Luck is believing that you are lucky, and it is high time for Baltimore to have a healthy dose of luck. Rolling through on the rattling rails of a passing street car, the alternating half of The Great American Rep, Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire, has settled into Everyman Theatre and is bringing all the luck Charm City needs to feel good about its theatrical experiences as of late.
Passing time is painful. So what could be more titillating than other people’s hell when it comes to distracting the mind from its own personal grief? In a powerfully evocative stage adaptation of David Grossman’s novel, Theater J brings Falling Out of Time to the stage as the penultimate production of their 2015/2016 calendar season. Directed and Adapted by Derek Goldman, this strikingly emotional drama hones in on the potent power of grief and its ability to transform the lives of an entire village.
A pilot is the blue. A fighter pilot becomes the blue through sweat, brains, and guts. Grounded, an evocative one-woman show written by George Brant, has landed at Everyman Theatre this fall. An award-winning sold out sensation in London, this co-production with Olney Theatre Center takes flight for the Baltimore-Washington area premier and soars with flying colors as an exceptionally well-penned and phenomenally well-performed dramatic production.
