The Spotlighters do it: 'Look Back in Anger'

"Look Back in Anger," John Osborne's groundbreaking British domestic drama, will be presented at the Spotlighters Theatre, 817 St. Paul St., for four weekends beginning Friday.

Directed by Robert Clingan, the production features Chris Clegg as the archetypal angry young man and Diane Signiski as his tormented wife. Show times are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through April 25. Tickets are $8 and $9. Call (410) 752-1225.

@ The musical public generally isn't interested in master classes. But that's not the case when the master doing the teaching is Eileen Farrell. The legendary soprano, who was equally renowned as an operatic star and a pop diva, will present master classes at the Peabody Conservatory tomorrow from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon in the Friedberg Concert Hall. Most of the singing will be by the conservatory's talented students, but it should give listeners in the auditorium a chance to hear the thoughts of one of the greatest singers of the last half-century. The classes are open to the public free of charge. Call (410) 659-8150.

Artist seeks universality through self-reference

A red light that flashes on and off to the artist's recorded heartbeat, enormously enlarged footprints on paper on the wall and in metal on the floor, images and writing taken from the artist's dreams, a video in which we see the artist's picture and hear his voice-over -- Jonathan Borofsky is everywhere in "Subjects: Prints and Multiples by Jonathan Borofsky, 1982-1991" at St. John's College in Annapolis. Borofsky's art is self-referential to an extraordinary degree, but through self-reference and self-revelation it seeks to touch a universal chord. The artist has become known for his gallery installations, but has also been creating prints for the last decade. This traveling show, the first to explore that aspect of his work, was curated by James Cuno, director of the Harvard University Art Museums. The show will be at the Mitchell Gallery through April 28. Call (410) 626-2556.
