COMING UP @ CENTERSTAGE

WHERE: Centerstage, 700 North Calvert Street, Baltimore

MAR 17–APR 16

Twisted Melodies
Written and Performed by Kelvin Roston, Jr.
Directed by Derrick Sanders
In association with Congo Square Theatre

This powerful one-man show is based on the life of ’70s soul singer and composer Donny Hathaway, perhaps best known for his duets with Roberta Flack, “The Closer I Get to You” and “Where is the Love?” Twisted Melodies is an immersive and crushing play about the brilliant musician’s compelling inner struggle. Torn between the muses that inspire him and the mental illness that torments him, Hathaway evaluates the choices in his life in a gripping performance by Kelvin Roston, Jr.

Intern Spotlight: Audience Relations Intern Vivian Barnes

Last week marked the grand re-opening of Baltimore Center Stage’s fully renovated theater. Audience Relations Intern Vivian Barnes was on hand to greet long-time patrons: 

“I loved getting to watch people's jaws drop and their eyes widen in delight as they turned the corner and got to see the new lobby, all lit up and expanded. It brought me so much joy to see people walk into the new Head Theater and not want to take their seats because they were so excited to explore everything that has been updated."
