‘One Man Star Wars Trilogy’ at Baltimore Soundstage

“Artoo, What are we doing here…in Baltimore?” It’s not uncommon for a show to open with a musical number. It’s also not uncommon for the opening number to be sung by a single performer.

2015 Capital Fringe Preview #8: Red Knight Productions Presents: ‘Witches’ by Scott Courlander

‘The Campsite Rule’ at Washington Rogues

Over the course of my college years, I have heard countless stories from alumni about their conflicted emotions upon returning to their alma mater.

Straight No Chaser at Wolf Trap

There’s something magical that happens when you take ten talented male vocalists, put them in matching slim-fitting blazers, and get them to sing out loud in perfect harmony and a synchronous two-step. We’ve seen it on popular television shows like Glee and even on a capella reality television competitions like The Sing Off, but nobody […]
