The 12th Annual Variations Project has arrived in Baltimore for the 2016 calendar year. Under the care of Rapid Lemon Productions, this year’s theme— as chosen by last year’s audiences— is Variations on Blame. To help spread the word and encourage local artists of Baltimore to become involved with the project, TheatreBloom sits down for an exclusive interview with the Founder of Rapid Lemon Productions to discuss the project and ways for people to get involved.
Hey, pal! Come here and shoot a president— or maybe just watch Stillpointe Theatre Initiative and Spotlight UB do it instead with their production of Assassins. With complex Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and Book by John Weidman, this edgy obscure musical is poignant and relevantly delivered for the current political climate and packs a powerful message to the audience. Co-Directed by Ryan Haase and Kimberly Lynne, the production sparkles with a twisted sense of patriotic pride amid a shimmering sea of talent.
