Pro Musica Rara and baroque dancers perform today at 0) BMA
Baroque music is more closely tied to dance than any other variety of what we today refer to as "classical" music. This afternoon at 3:30 at the Baltimore Museum of Art, Pro Musica Rara will present an unusual opportunity to perceive the interconnections between these two genres. The program will feature Boston's Ken Pierce Baroque Dancers, who will perform their historical reconstructions of dances from Purcell's "The Faerie Queene." The musicians of PMR will also play works by Telemann and Bach. Tickets for the concert are $12, $10 for seniors and BMA members and $6 for students. For information and reservations, call (410) 243-6843.
Matthew Broderick plays an actor on the way up and Jack Lemmon plays an actor on the way down in a made-for-TV version of David's Mamet's "A Life in the Theatre," premiering on TNT at 8 p.m. Saturday. The program will be repeated at various times over the next 10 days.
Written when Mamet was only 25, "A Life in the Theatre" is an uncharacteristically wistful backstage drama. The two-man play debuted in 1977 under the direction of Gregory Mosher, who has also directed the teleplay, which was adapted by the playwright.
J. Wynn Rousuck "If I'm a gay woman, then I'm treated as if I were also a communist and an alien." So says Ann Beigel, co-author and star of "Commie Lesbos from Outer Space," a one-woman show opening Friday at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St.
Due to its adult subject matter and language, the show will be presented at late curtain times, Fridays and Saturdays at 9:45 p.m. and Sundays at 7 p.m., through Oct. 24. Tickets are $14. For more information, call (410) 752-8558.
