FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Baltimore Center Stage Announces Lookingglass Alice Cast and Artistic Team

Center Stage’s Holiday Production Boasts a Contemporary retelling of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale.

Baltimore—November 3, 2017. Baltimore Center Stage is pleased to announce the cast
and artistic team for Lookingglass Alice. A witty tale of curiosity and wonder, Baltimore Center Stage brings a fresh, modern twist to the original story. As the third production in Baltimore Center Stage’s “Season of Community,” Lookingglass Alice is a journey of rediscovery—a timely theme as families reconnect during the holiday season.

Lookingglass Alice is directed by Jeremy Cohen. This is Cohen’s third production at
Baltimore Center Stage. He previously directed Let There Be Love (2010) and Wild with
Happy (2014) and he is excited to collaborate with staff members that he has gotten to
know over the years. Assistant Director Mari Travis was handpicked by Cohen and is a
native Baltimorean.

“From the beginning, this has been a collaborative process, thinking about what this story
should be for Baltimore in 2017,” said Cohen. “The idea for this production is also that
we are engaging very directly with the audience right as they walk through the doors.”

The cast includes Markita Prescott* (Alice), Garrett Turner* (White Rabbit/White
Knight), Patrice Covington* (Red Queen/Dormouse), Christopher Ramirez*
(Dodgson/White Queen) and David Darrow* (Mad Hatter/Caterpillar). Two local artists were cast as dancers, Jessica Bennett, a recent graduate of Garrison Forest School,
and Sensi Silab, a senior at the Baltimore School for the Arts, in her first professional
stage appearance.

The artistic team includes director Cohen and Assistant Director Travis, along with music
director Jose C. Simbulan (Music Director), Tim Mackabee (Scenic Designer), David
Burdick (Costume Designer), Rui Rita (Lighting Designer), Lindsay Jones (Sound Designer), and Caite Hevner (Projection Designer). World renowned professor of hip-hop dance, Rennie Harris will serve as choreographer.

Press Release: Highwood Theatre Opens 2017-2018 Student Season with Sondheim’s Follies

Highwood Theatre 2

For immediate release:

Highwood Theatre Opens 2017-2018 Student Season with Sondheim’s Follies

“An ambitious and challenging piece rarely – if ever – performed by students”

The Highwood Theatre opens its 2017-2018 season with a concert version of Stephen Sondheim’s Follies, based on a group of Weismann Follies showgirls who reunite one last time before the theater they once performed at is torn down. The showgirls and their partners are forced to confront their regrets and challenges with current lives and relationships. The show includes an exceptionally talented 15-person student cast ranging from 7th to 11th grades.

Artistic Director Matthew Nicola explains: “We are tremendously excited about this production of Follies. In particular, the staging as an intimate concert production will not only the strip the piece down to its emotional core, but also bring the characters’ emotional plights within feet of the audience. This is an ambitious and challenging piece rarely – if ever – performed by students because of its complex score and story, yet the young cast tackles it effortlessly.”

The Highwood Theatre‘s 2017-2018 season, Off Your Rocker: Redefining and Defying the Status Quo, is the theatre’s most ambitious season to date. The season, with seven musicals and six plays, spotlights shows built around defying norms and comes at a time when it is especially important for audiences to consider different ways of thinking.

Off Your Rocker: Redefining and Defying the Status Quo stems from Highwood’s mission of building community through theatre and giving everyone a voice in the theatre they produce. It also offers unparalleled opportunities to Highwood’s students and professionals, from staging Highwood’s first professional musical in three years to bringing acclaimed Broadway performer Nick Blaemire and 34-time world dance champion Cate Caplin to Silver Spring.

Follies will take place on Friday, November 10 at 8 PM; Saturday, November 11 at 8 PM; and Sunday, November 12 at 2 and 7 PM. Tickets are $20. All shows will take place at the Highwood Theatre, 914 Silver Spring Ave, Silver Spring MD 20910. Tickets may be purchased online at www.thehighwoodtheatre.org/tickets or through the box office, which can be reached at reservations@thehighwoodtheare.org, at 301-587-0697 or by visiting the box office during regular business hours.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Single Carrot Theatre Hosts Continues Conversations Surrounding Lear

Baltimore, MD – Single Carrot’s 11th Season is now open with its thought-provoking and
fast-paced regional premiere of Lear by Young Jean Lee. Like Shakespeare’s tragedy, Lee’s
text includes universal themes of family conflict, guilt, and madness; at the same time, it
takes a nuanced look race, wrestling with mortality, and the complex dynamics between
aging parents and their adult children. In the hope of continuing the conversations sparked by this vibrant production, Single Carrot will be hosting talkbacks with panelists from Morgan State University, Center Stage, the ACME Corporation, and Chesapeake
Shakespeare Company.

Race, Shakespeare, and Young Jean Lee
Sunday, October 15, following the 3pm performance

Join Gerrad Taylor of Chesapeake Shakespeare Company and Shirley Basfield-Dunlap of
Morgan State University for a discussion on the complex relationship between modern audiences and classical material. Share your thoughts on Young Jean Lee’s frenetic adaptation of Shakespeare’s famous tragedy, and engage with our panelists on issues of race, identity and performance.

Pride Night at Single Carrot Theatre!
Thursday, October 19, preceding the 8pm performance

Join us for cocktails, live pre-show music from Christen B, and a fabulous evening of theatre celebrating the 9th Annual LGBT Center Awareness Day! More about the artist: Christen B seamlessly blends electronic and acoustic instruments with transcendent vocals leaving listeners in a state of euphoria! This Baltimore native is changing the way people experience music. She allows the audience to watch as she masterfully layers unique sounds while looping them on the spot and leaving the crowd wanting more!

Adapting the Classics
Friday, October 20, following the 8pm performance

Join Gavin Witt of Center Stage and Lola Pierson and Stephen Nunns of The ACME Corporation as they discuss the complicated task of adapting famous classical texts for a modern audience. Nunns and Pierson collaborated last year on an original adaptation of A Streetcar Named Desire, Stranger Kindness, which was recently named “Best Play” in City Paper’s Best of Baltimore Reader’s poll. Witt, along with Center Stage’s Kwame Kwei-Armah, is part of a national project to reimagine and update Shakespeare’s plays for a modern audience. Join them in a conversation on the nuanced process of bringing a well-known, perhaps beloved, text into the present.

About the Play:
Lear
By Young Jean Lee
Directed by Andrew Peters
Shakespearean drama meets millennial self-indulgence in this outlandish and driving take on King Lear. Boring, stuffy parents have been left for dead – consigning audiences to the not-so-tender mercies of a younger generation, a mix of heroes and villains indulging their own selfish whims. Despite sharp wits and sharper teeth, these Kardashian-esque kids are comically shallow, callous, and vain: more concerned with dancing and drama than their own doomed parents. But superficial pleasures can only reign for so long before their conscience catches up with them, unearthing ugly secrets, doubts, and fears. Regional premiere.

WHEN:
Previews: Wednesday, October 4 and Thursday, October 5 at 8pm
Running: October 6 – 29
Thursday- Saturday at 8pm
Sundays at 3pm

WHERE:
Single Carrot Theatre
2600 N. Howard Street

PRESS RELEASE: Everyman Theatre’s Intimate Apparel Reveals Patterns of Synergy and Commitment to Playwright’s Work

Everyman Theatre’s Intimate Apparel Reveals Patterns of Synergy and Commitment to Playwright’s Work
Production Weaves Thematic Threads with Meaningful Community Connections

Intimate_Apparel

Baltimore, MD – As though tailor-made for the locally-commissioned play’s Baltimore audience,Intimate Apparel stirs with substance, style and sincerity at Everyman Theatre—October 18 through November 19, 2017—in a quietly commanding production that radiates with powerful performances on-stage and profound local partnerships off-stage, bringing the play’s delicate themes affectingly to life.

Wearing her heart on her sleeve while sewing intimates for her clientele, Esther is the talented African American seamstress in turn-of-the-century New York who has built a savings for herself making beautiful undergarments—while earnestly daydreaming of new beginnings, romantic possibilities, and the lingering affection she shares with a Jewish fabric merchant. But when an egregious deception cuts short heartfelt desires, can class, culture and circumstance outmatch the strength of human spirit? Inspired by a true story, Intimate Apparel is a heart-rending contemporary work in the style of an enduring classic—from Lynn Nottage, the first female playwright to win two Pulitzers.

Intimate Apparel marks the third Lynn Nottage play produced at Everyman Theatre, following 2015’sRuined and 2014’s By The Way, Meet Vera Stark. Intimate Apparel director Tazewell Thompson (who previously directed Great Expectations and Ruined at Everyman, as well as a production of Intimate Apparel at Dartmouth College) brings what Everyman Theatre Founding Artistic Director Vincent M. Lancisi describes as “a dramatist’s eye and a librettist’s ear” to the helm.

“Plays like Intimate Apparel are about bringing the real changing world into the theater,” said Thompson. “They are about making the theater contemporaneous with life; making the theater a leader of perception, not a follower. Intimate Apparel awakens us to the selves within ourselves; allows us to see, hear and understand the lives of, indeed, every man.”

In this spirit, Everyman’s production of Intimate Apparel is augmented by an extensive slate of ancillary programming that fastens topics from the play (including empowerment, entrepreneurship, and evolving trends) to close-knit community collaborations involving local artists, makers and independent entrepreneurs as well as institutions such as MICA, Baltimore School for the Arts, the Baltimore Design School and the Maryland Film Festival’s SNF Parkway Theatre.

“The story on stage can be just the beginning of the journey,” explained Everyman Theatre Managing Director Jonathan K. Waller. “We invite audiences to join us in deepening the experience by exploring how the play’s themes connect to our lives and history here in the Baltimore area. For Intimate Apparel, we have more opportunities to do this than ever before thanks to a growing circle of committed and connected partners.”

Partner projects for Intimate Apparel include an on-site costume exhibit, a tasting involving local restaurants, a film screening and discussion, a community conversation with local/regional fashion designers, a panel discussion about labor and sex work, and a walking tour of Baltimore’s historic garment district—among others. (See below for comprehensive listing.)

The cast of Intimate Apparel reunites several cast members from Ruined, including Resident Company Member Dawn Ursula* (Esther), Jade Wheeler* (Mayme) and Bueka Uwemedimo* (George). Rounding out the cast is Jenn Walker* (Mrs. Dickson), Resident Company Member Beth Hylton* (Mrs. Van Buren), and Drew Kopas* (Mr. Marks) and Steve Polites (Understudy-Mr. Marks).

The Intimate Apparel design team includes director Tazewell Thompson, Donald Eastman (Set Design), Stephen Quandt (Lighting Design), David Burdick (Costume Design), Fabian Obispo (Sound Design & Composition), Gary Logan (Dialects) and Denise O’Brien (Wig Design).

Intimate Apparel runs October 18 through November 19, 2017. Tickets ($10-65) are now on sale online (everymantheatre.org), by phone (410.752.2208), or at the Everyman Theatre Box Office (315 W. Fayette Street, Baltimore, MD).
