Pulitzer Prize-winning ‘Next to Normal’ at Center Stage


 [A] brave, breathtaking musical… A work of muscular grace and power. 

–The New York Times

 Exhilarating… an achingly poignant score. 

–The Washington Post

 The artistry and ambition are uplifting. 

–LA Times

 The smiles it engenders are the marveling kind, etched in tears.

BDS_2014 Open House Flyerfrom the BDS website:

Designing Baltimore, One Student at a Time

Baltimore Design School is a public middle-high school that focuses on design.  In the high school, students will learn the basics of Fashion Design, Architecture, and Graphic Design. In the fall of 2011 the school started with grades 6 and 7, adding a new 6th grade each year, so that by 2016, the school will be a full 6-12 school

The Baltimore Design School believes that all students, with good instruction and practice, can learn art and design skills and achieve high standards in their academic programs. We value student interests in drawing, making things, fashion ideas, creative problem-solving, three-dimensional abilities, planning and building, and communicating visually through graphics. We love students who see problems that need new solutions, who envision possibilities, and imagine a better world.

We believe our graduates will be leading designers and architects of the future who see design as a way of thinking, problem-solving, and living a productive and rewarding life.

MICA Named 10th ‘Most Hipster’ Campus in US

MICA, 10th most hipster campus in US

I am so glad Baltimore magazine brought this list of “The 10 Most Hipster Campuses 2014″ to my attention. I may have otherwise never had a chance to read these opening sentences: “Hipsters appreciate more than rocking flannel and chugging Pabst Blue Ribbon. They also appreciate skinny jeans, bands you never heard of and, above all, a place of higher learning where they’re able to find like-minded individuals.”

Remember, people, hipsters are not just about the flannel and Pabst! They’re also way, way about the jeans! (It’d have to be about more than flannel and PBR, or else most of my Northern New York redneck relatives — whom I adore — would qualify.) Read More →

The Campbell Dance Experience at Theatre Project

Campbell Dance

catch of the day fish (2)Even for those of us who consider ourselves real culture vultures, I’m gonna bet that most of us just don’t see that much dance on the regular. We may go to plays, films, concerts and lectures, but for many, dance can be a little less on our radar. Even if we like to go out dancing, or take dance classes (Zumba, anyone?) when we think of watching dance performance, many times, our only point of reference is The Nutcracker. Luckily, you can change all that this Friday, with a special, one-night only performance at Theatre Project from The Campbell Dance Experience– some of the most remarkable contemporary dance that the city has to offer.

Acclaimed One-Man Show Mother/SON at Theatre Project

Mother Son at theatre project

catch of the day fish (2)Baltimore Theatre Project is “Baltimore’s Fringe Festival all year round.” And it’s true. While we love the high production and spectacular splash of the shows that come through the Hippodrome and the classically complex works produced by Center Stage, sometimes you just want something a little smaller. A little more intimate. Something high-emotion, but lo-fi. And that’s just the kind of work that can really shine at a venue like Theatre Project. Jeffrey Solomon’s award-winning Mother/SON charts the delicate, layered and changing relationship between a Jewish gay man and his mother. It’s an honest and poignant autobiographical exploration brought to the stage with precision, imagination and understated power. Read More →

      Bread Baking Skill Supper at Dooby’s

      Note: Since the posting of this article, we have learned that this event has been postponed. Stay tuned for a new date!

      Skill Supper Baking

      catch of the day fish (2)Fresh baked bread. Nothing beats it. The smell, the taste, the sound of a thick crust as you bite into it, and the soft, squishy insides that just melt in your mouth right afterward. Plus, there’s the whole ritual and process that goes into crafting such a creation. The fermenting. The kneading. The waiting. The punching (dough—not people). The kneading (again). The baking. It can take all day, or not, depending on your style and how dedicated you are to exactly replicating ancient techniques. But undeniably, it’s a process well worth the time and effort—and definitely worth taking the time to learn to do well. This is especially true if the learning comes with an amazing specialty dinner and instruction from local pros. Read More →
