Don't miss the must-see show of the fall! The ultimate detective story, this gripping psychological thriller is the perfect cross between the worlds of Downton Abbey and Sherlock Holmes. Filled with twists, turns and gasps, J.B. Priestley's An Inspector Calls will leave you guessing until the very last moment.
J.B. Priestley skillfully holds up a mirror to his characters, reflecting societal issues of class, collective responsibility and gender dynamics. How have artists historically used the stage as a space to engage their audiences with deeper questions about ourselves and our society?
The Washington Post talks to director Noah Himmelstein
"If it sounds like Noah Himmelstein is suddenly everywhere, he is!" says the Washington Post. Find out about the director's work on An Inspector Calls, I Am Harvey Milk starring Kristen Chenoweth and more.

Ever wonder what it was like to live with 50 servants in your household? What would you wear if you were an Edwardian? Get inspired as you go behind the scenes and learn about the world of the show you are about to see.
Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice officially opens tonight and seats are already selling fast for the run of the show!
In the Bennet sisters’ 19th-century English world, marriage is the prize, but for second-eldest, Lizzy, companionship trumps blind courtship. Enter Mr. Darcy, and one of literature’s most iconic romances takes flight.

3rd Annual Best of Baltimore Student Film Festival
WHEN: Thursday, September 17 | 7:30pm
Back by popular demand, come see a selection of the best student films from Goucher, JHU, MICA, Morgan, Towson, Stevenson, University of Baltimore, and UMBC. Each college showcases two films. Don’t miss seeing work by filmmakers who will soon be nationally and internationally recognized.
Quotes about the Best of Baltimore Student Film Festival from participating Baltimore universities and colleges:
"The Best of Baltimore Student Film Festival is a great opportunity for students to show their work, and for the Baltimore community to see what the new generation of filmmakers is up to. Our students are excited and proud to be part of this event." – Professor Daniel Marcus, Goucher College
"There is a wealth of mostly unseen and untapped talent out there among Baltimore's undergraduate filmmakers. It's about time they shared it with each other and with the community, and the Creative Alliance's Student Film Festival is the one place where that's actually happening." – Professor Linda De Libero, Johns Hopkins University
Morgan faculty and students are excited to participate in this year's Creative Alliance Student Film Festival. As both a Morgan Faculty and a Creative Alliance member, I voice my strong support for Baltimore students and filmmakers, and for the Short Film form in particular. In my view, there is no more valuable experience for the student filmmaker than screening her work for an audience, and the Creative Alliance provides an excellent arts-supportive environment for filmmakers and filmgoers. Shorts are FUN, and we salute and support the Creative Alliance for mounting yet another excellent community arts event." – Professor David Warfield, Morgan State University
"At Stevenson University, we believe in providing our students with as many hands-on real-world experiences as possible, and a public screening of their work counts as such an opportunity. Students are able to see how their films play to an audience other than their friends and family, and gain from the valuable feedback they receive from these (we hope) impartial viewers. They also benefit from exposure to the work of their fellow students from other institutions, and will hopefully make contacts to broaden their circle of local filmmakers. We look forward to seeing what you think of their films, and to seeing the films from the other schools. It should be a great night!" – Professor Christopher Reed, Stevenson University
"This is a great way for not only individual students to have their work showcased but for student filmmakers to network and be inspired by one another." – Professor Dina Fiasconaro, Stevenson University
"It's an excellent venue for students to see the work of their colleagues from many local institutions - and to exhibit their work to a larger, regional audience. This will hopefully inspire the students and potentially lead to cross-campus collaborations." – Professor Greg Faller, Towson University
"The Annual Best of Baltimore Student Film Festival is a wonderful opportunity for students to share their work with film students at other universities in the Baltimore area. This sharing of student work has the potential for developing future cooperative ventures among film students in the region." – Professor John Mackerron, Towson University
"Over 6-billion hours of video are watched on YouTube each month. The search term "student films" brings up more than 24-million hits. Which ones are worth watching? Festivals, like this one at the Creative Alliance, pull together the best choices for you (and the screen is bigger than 13")." – Professor Julie Simon, University of Baltimore
