We’ve watched with excitement as non-profit developer Jubilee Baltimore has renovated The Centre, a theater in Station North that was active from 1939 to 1959. Read More →
Baltimore is practically overflowing with really interesting theater lately. We’ve got everything from the classics staged by Center Stage to musicals done by Spotlighters. We’ve got international artists presenting experimental work at Theatre Project, and thoughtful contemporary drama at Everyman. But how many plays has this city hosted that are performed for only one person at a time? That’s right, we’re talking an audience of one. Leave it to the perennially daring Cricket Arrison to devise (and pull off) such a feat. And leave it to the Baltimore Annex Theater to present such unusual work.
North Ave just regained a tiny bit of its old charm, as the Centre Theatre facade finally got some letters back up there. The renovation is being done by non-profit Jubilee Baltimore with support from MICA. (It’s right across the street from the Parkway Theatre, which is being redeveloped by MICA, Johns Hopkins, and the Maryland Film Festival). Read More →
