The story of a 'good' man in a bad time
"Good," a play by C. P. Taylor set in Nazi Germany, will make its Baltimore premiere at Fells Point Corner Theatre, 251 S. Ann St., beginning Friday. Produced on Broadway in 1982 by the Royal Shakespeare Company, "Good" was described by its late author as the "story of how a 'good' man gets caught up in the nightmare of the Third Reich."
Fells Point Corner's production is directed by Barry Feinstein and features Joe Moore as a German philosophy professor and Richard Jackson as a Jewish psychologist. Performance times are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:30 and Sundays at 2 p.m. through April 18. Tickets are $9. (The March 21 performance will be presented in the theater's handicapped-accessible first-floor space.) For information, call (410) 276-7837.
@ The Walters Art Gallery initiates a new concert series called "Concert and Conversation" today at 3 p.m. The first in the series features pianist Rachel Franklin and Peabody professor of music theory Eileen Soskin, who will discuss the pieces on Franklin's program. Franklin, a Peabody graduate student, will play a selection that includes three late, enigmatic pieces by Franz Liszt and one of that composer's grand Bach transcriptions; music by Liszt's student, Julius Zarebski; Bartok's "Improvisations on Hungarian Peasant Songs"; and Chopin's F Minor Ballade. Tickets are $7. For more information, call (410) 547-9000.
'Art for Action' at TSU
A benefit for HERO and AIDSWALK '93 that combines live performances with a silent art auction will run from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday at the Holtzman Gallery in the Fine Arts Center of Towson State University.

The evening's music and dance performances will include an appearance by noted soprano and TSU faculty member Ruth Drucker.
"Art for Action" begins a week of activities -- including a showing of the regional section of the AIDS memorial quilt -- designed to mark AIDS Awareness Week on the campus. Other events include a concert Friday by the group Disappear Fear and a benefit performance of Richard Greenberg's comedy "Eastern Standard" Saturday.
