‘The Baltimore Waltz’ at Rep Stage

Something is undeniably right about a play that keeps you chuckling all evening then sends you off with a lump in your throat. That, in a nutshell, is Paula Vogel’s The Baltimore Waltz, now opening another sterling theater season at Rep Stage in Howard County. Vogel wrote the play in response to her brother’s death […]

‘Sunset Baby’ at Rep Stage

Dominique Morisseau’s Sunset Baby is social realism with snap. It knows how to “unlock all that attitude,” as one of the play’s three characters puts it, and audiences attending the regional premiere at Rep Stage had best be prepared for it.

Playwright […]

‘The Fantasticks’ at Rep Stage

Try to remember, four months before September when Rep Stage mounted The Fantasticks to close their season. A classic love fable springs to mind; the Music by Harvey Schmidt, the Book and Lyrics by Tom Jones. A boy, a girl, two fathers, a moon, and a wall – what more could a love story need? […]

But is it so simple a choice when those driving forces of primitive carnality surface, and how simply does one choose to turn […]
