But sometimes it’s nice to mix it up– lest we only watch Miracle on 34th Street and It’s a Wonderful Life over and over and over again, right? Well, leave it the the Baltimore Theatre Project to push the envelope ever so gently with what could well become a new, local holiday staple: it’s Charlie Bethel’s one-man rendition of Charles Dickens’ The Seven Poor Travellers.

The newly renovated 13th Floor is holding an inaugural Halloween fete on All Hallow’s Eve itself, and we’re all invited. There will be a costume contest, live music, and all of the fabulous food, drink, and service you’d expect there any day of the year.
