All’s fair in love and war. Shakespeare said it. Well, he didn’t actually. In fact, he wrote a whole bunch of plays that seemed to prove the opposite of fairness in war and especially in love. Much Ado About Nothing, one of the less-troubled comedies, is one such that is now making its way to outdoor (and temporarily indoor) stages by way of Gypsy Wagon Theatre Company this summer. Directed by Bill Soucy,
Tis the bloody business which informs thus to mine eyes: a theatre company hath sprung up afresh in Reisterstown.

Christopher Columbus! It’s astonishing! Little Women playing now through May 21, 2017 at Third Wall Productions in the Hamilton neighborhood of Baltimore City. Directed by Christine Thomas with Musical Direction by Eliza Van Kan and Orchestra Conduction by Andrew Zile, this American classic story, based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott, will have a fire burning inside your soul for the bond of sisterhood!

Che pazzo! Che buffo! Che divertente! Dio mio, che spettacolo! A-wha? You no speak-a de Italiano? That’s-a okay. Neither do they. Not in Ken Ludwig’s Lend Me a Tenor now appearing at Third Wall Productions, anyhow. This madcap farce filled to the brim of mocking stereotypes will have you choking on-a your spaghetti before the evening is through! Directed by Mea Holloway, this zany runaround comedy is fortified with door-slamming, bed-breaking action that will keep you chuckling from start to finish.
