The jazz vocalist Irene Jalenti has always admitted that much of her influence comes from the popular music of the 60s and the 70s. The Beatles were always played in her household when she was growing up, and many of the songs that she grew up learning were by the British band. Her love for the band was so strong that in 2005 she recorded an entire album with jazz arrangements of the music of the Beatles, the project was called "Back to the Beatles" and was an undiscussed success in Italy.

Alan Blackman is a Baltimore based pianist and award-winning composer. His 2017 release on Summit Records features guitarist Gilad Hekselman and is entitled Chapter 3.

by Eugene O’Neill
Directed by Donald Hicken

WHERE: Everyman Theatre, 315 West Fayette Street, Baltimore
TICKETS: $56-$65

What begins as an ordinary summer day at the Connecticut home of the Tyrone family morphs into a night filled with foggy, drink-laced demons where long-buried secrets are revealed—and once exposed cannot be ignored. A long-revered showcase for tour-de-force performances, the Long Day’s Journey Into Night cast features Resident Company Members Deborah Hazlett, Danny Gavigan and Tim Getman, alongside Everyman newcomer Kurt Rhoads and M. Butterfly's Katharine Ariyan. The first Everyman Theatre production of a Eugene O’Neill work, Long Day’s Journey Into Night is an autobiographical insight into its late, legendary playwright—and a compassionately brutal look at one family’s struggle to fight for love itself.

“It wouldn't be a stretch to call Long Day’s Journey Into Night a 'holy grail' for actors. Eugene O'Neill's characters require a level of commitment, rigor and virtuosity that few roles match—and the level at which this cast delivers is nothing short of phenomenal.” —Donald Hicken, Director

Single Carrot Theatre Presents A Public Reading of an Unproduced Screenplay About the Death of Walt Disney


by Lucas Hnath

WHEN: February 2-February 25; Thursdays-Saturdays at 8:00pm, Sundays at 3:00pm
: Single Carrot Theatre, 2600 North Howard St., Baltimore
TICKETS: $29, $25 (seniors/students)

Leave the magic behind in this darkly humorous, cutting examination of the megalomaniac who shaped a thousand childhoods: Mr. Walt Disney. The carefree and charming creator of so many beloved characters—father-figure to a generation of Americans—fades away as this fraught and fast-paced play chases down the dark heart of the Disney machine. Power, betrayal, deception, and disillusionment weave together to form a portrait of a man so full of hubris and obsessed with his own legacy, he tried to remake the world and achieve immortality. Join us at the table. Regional Premiere.

Eric Poch (Ron Miller) is absolutely stoked to join Single Carrot for the first time. He graduated from Towson University with a degree in Theatre and loves performing in Baltimore. His credits include the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company (Taming of the Shrew, Richard III, Three Musketeers), Everyman Theater (The Beaux’ Stratagem) and the Baltimore Rock Opera Society (Chronoshred, Electric Pharaoh, Grundlehammer). His mom worked for the Disney Corporation for most of his childhood, and he hopes she enjoys the show!

Mohammad R. Suaidi (Roy Disney) is an educator and theatre maker who graduated from Towson University’s MFA Theatre program. Recent performance works include Giovanni’s Room, a site-specific piece based on the James Baldwin novel (AKIMBO Dance and Movement Art Festival), A. Rey Pamatmat’s play Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them (Iron Crow Theatre), and the collaboratively devised Promenade: Baltimore (Single Carrot Theatre). During the day, Mohammad works at Strong City Baltimore’s Adult Learning Center, where he teaches English to new immigrants and refugees.

Rep Stage’s World Premiere Play, “All She Must Possess,” Inspires Gallery Exhibit at Howard Community College

Fashion from the Era of Baltimore’s Cone Sisters

Exhibit Explores Historical Clothing from Era of Baltimore’s Famed Cone Sisters

WHEN: runs through March 11, Monday–Sunday, 10 a.m.–9:30 p.m.
:  Rouse Company Foundation Gallery, which is located in the lobby of the Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center, Howard Community College, 10901 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia
ADMISSION: Free and open to the public
For more information on the gallery and the exhibit, visit

A new exhibit of historical women’s clothing from the era of Baltimore’s famed Cone sisters is on display at Howard Community College’s Rouse Company Foundation Gallery. Dr. Claribel and Miss Etta Cone, daughters of German-Jewish immigrants, could have lived unassuming lives in Baltimore at the turn of the century, but instead they traveled the world, amassing one of the world’s greatest Modern art collections. The exhibit was developed in connection with the Rep Stage world premiere of All She Must Possess, a highly theatrical celebration of Etta Cone’s extraordinary life.

The exhibit provides an opportunity to view historical garments from the era in which the Cone sisters lived and to learn more about the fashion tastes shared by two of Baltimore’s most famous doyens of Modernity. The exhibit showcases clothing and accessories used for everyday wear, traveling, evenings out, and formal occasions. The exhibit also includes the historical clothing and photographs that inspired Julie Potter, costume designer for All She Must Possess, as she developed the costumes worn by the play’s actors.  Accompanying the clothing are Potter’s original renderings of the costumes.

In the 1870s, when the Cone family moved to Baltimore, the city had a thriving Jewish community, which included prominent business leaders who founded Baltimore’s most successful and prominent department stores. The prestigious Hutzler’s opened its new, expanded building, known as “the palace,” in 1888. Hochschild, Kohn & Co. gave Hutzler’s a run for the money, opening its own large store in 1897. The two department stores offered the entire Mid-Atlantic region the most current fashions of the day.

By contrast, the Cone sisters’ style was simple, conservative, and somewhat austere. They did not adapt to current trends, but instead favored petticoats and long skirts. Their choice in clothing is interesting, juxtaposed with their passion for collecting artifacts and art, which was anything but conservative and plain. As a result, their art collections were modern, exotic, and colorful. Even after the sisters were regular visitors to Paris, they continued to have their clothing custom-made.

The exhibit was made possible by the Towson University Historic Clothing Collection, and sponsored by the Towson University Department of Theatre Arts.

All She Must Possess
by Susan McCully

WHEN: February 8–25
: Rep Stage, the professional regional theatre in residence at Howard Community College, 10901 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia
TICKETS: $40 for general admission, $35 for seniors and the military, and $15 for students with a current ID. Thursdays are $10 performances. For tickets and additional information about the production, visit or call the box office at 443-518-1500.


The Baltimore Cone sisters, Dr. Claribel and Miss Etta, daughters of German-Jewish immigrants, could have lived tranquil, appropriate lives as respected Victorian ladies.  Instead, the iconic duo voraciously collected art and curios from around the world. The unassuming Etta, often overshadowed by her sister, sat demurely among art and literary geniuses of the early twentieth century while slowly amassing one of world's greatest Modern art collections. “All She Must Possess” is a highly theatrical celebration of Etta's extraordinary life. Works of art come alive and her one-time lover, Gertrude Stein, sings her praises as we watch her journey from society laughingstock to doyen of Modernity.

“All She Must Possess” will be Rep Stage’s production in participation with the 2018 DC Women’s Voices Theater Festival.

"Reflections" Exhibits Opens @ The Lewis Museum

Reflections: Intimate Portraits of Iconic African Americans

WHEN: Thursday February 1, 201, through August 12, 2018, Noon - 5pm
Reginald F. Lewis Museum, 830 E. Pratt St., Baltimore

Think about the various rooms in your home - your living room, bedroom, office, etc.

Think about the items that you have in these rooms. Are there paintings, sculptures, records, sports equipment, posters or toys? Do you think the things we surround ourselves with are a “reflection” of who we are?

Reflections: Intimate Portraits of African Americans is a documentary-style series of photographs that differ from traditional portraiture. Instead of a single, close-up, posed portrait of the person, photographer Terrence A. Reese (TAR), takes black and white photographs of renowned Americans in their personal living spaces—environments which reflect their persona. The density of the living spaces sometimes makes it difficult to find the subject, but the viewer is rewarded by analyzing the photographs to imagine a life well-lived. Reese also strategically places mirrors or reflective surfaces in the photographs to reveal the subjects in rich and interesting ways.

These unusual portraits liberate the eye to move about within the boundaries of the image, not encompassing it all in one glance. The exercise reveals the unforeseen and true nature of the individual. It is the challenge of locating the subject's image in the mirror that becomes an intriguing and rewarding experience while exploring their space, their physical extension of self. Each image is accompanied by the photographer’s personal written memoir which reveals a creative collaboration of dialogue that culminates into an emergence of art.

The collection of more than 45 portraits includes a network of luminaries such as legendary photographer and filmmaker Gordon Parks, dancers Harold and Fayard Nicholas, civil rights activist Daisy Bates, media mogul Catherine Hughes, and others. 

Can you find the icon in the mirror?

Reflections of Baltimore

Extending the theme of reflections and perceptions as it relates to how we view various people, places and things, the Reginald F. Lewis Museum presents Reflections of Baltimore, a community curated space where artists, activists, residents and casual observers can present their reflection of Baltimore.

“Reflections of Baltimore is designed to serve as a social laboratory offering a safe space for the community to respond to how they perceive Charm City,” remarked Charles Bethea, Director of Collections and Exhibitions the architect of this community curated project.  “Over the last several years, the people of Baltimore have seen their city in the national spotlight from a controversial death of an unarmed Blackman that led to an Uprising, children in huddled in classrooms without heat, and a patient discharged on the street in the dead of winter in nothing more than a hospital gown, and we (the RFLM) are taking a proactive role in shaping the narrative of our home city,” Bethea continued.

Working with several local artists and photographers, Reflections of Baltimore will be an organic workspace featuring live art creations and interactive opportunities for community dialogue on the perception of Baltimore.  Through each addition to the space, the gallery will transform with different perspectives, view points and presentations through August.

Reflections of Baltimore is being presented in conjunction with Reflections: Intimate Portraits of African Americans.  Visitors will be able to view unique portraits of iconic African Americans surrounded by material objects that are extensions of how each perceives themselves and then view or participate in the community curated gallery shaping the perception of the city of Baltimore.

About the Reginald F. Lewis Museum

A Smithsonian affiliate, the museum engages visitors through its permanent and special exhibitions, resource center, as well as programs such as its film series, live music performances, and family programming.

A mosaic of asphalt adventures, landscape photography, and some of the craziest s*** you’ve ever seen, Dmitrii Kalashnikov’s THE ROAD MOVIE is a stunning compilation of video footage shot exclusively via the deluge of dashboard cameras that populate Russian roads. The epitome of a you-have- to-see- it-to- believe-it documentary, THE ROAD MOVIE captures a wide range of spectacles through the windshield—including a comet crashing down to Earth, an epic forest fire, and no shortage of angry motorists taking road rage to wholly new and unexpected levels—all accompanied by bemused commentary from unseen and often stoic drivers and passengers.

Thirty years after his death, Joseph Beuys still feels like a visionary and is widely considered one of the most influential artists of his generation. Known for his contributions to the Fluxus movement and his work across diverse media — from happening and performance to sculpture, installation, and graphic art — Beuys’ expanded concept of the role of the artist places him in the middle of socially relevant discourses on media, community, and capitalism. Using previously untapped visual and audio sources, director Andreas Veiel has created a one-of-a-kind chronicle: BEUYS is not a portrait in the traditional sense, but an intimate and in-depth look at a human being, his art and ideas, and the way they have impacted the world.
