'Tiny Alice' will open Friday at Fells Point Corner Theatre
The richest woman in the world offers to donate a fortune to the church, but her terms seem less than saintly in Edward Albee's 1964 metaphysical mystery play, "Tiny Alice," which opens Friday at Fells Point Corner Theatre, 251 S. Ann St.
Fells Point Corner's production of this challenging exploration of faith, power and wealth will be directed by Steve Goldklang. The cast includes Joseph Moore, Jennifer Brown, Mark E. Campion, Christopher Thomas Clegg and Roger Buchanan. Show times are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10. For more information, call (410) 276-7837.
@ Joseph Stephens is an extraordinarily accomplished man. He's a distinguished psychiatrist -- he's a member of the faculty of the medical school of Johns Hopkins University -- and he's also a concert pianist. As a musician, Stephens has a quality that a good psychiatrist must have -- a fearless ability to explore the unknown. This evening at 5:30 at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, Stephens will perform a fascinating program of transcriptions -- some of them so rarely heard that even many piano aficionados don't know of their existence. This recital is likely to be the only chance you'll ever get to hear the Byzantine harmonic complexities that the wizardly Leopold Godowsky constructed on a simple melody in his "Passacaglia on the beginning of Schubert's 'Unfinished Symphony.' " The concert is free, but contributions of $3 or more to the cathedral are recommended.
Stephen Wigler The lives of the Inuit people of Canada's Northwest Territories will be reflected in "Northern Lights: Inuit Textile Art From the Canadian Arctic" opening at the Baltimore Museum of Art Wednesday. It will contain about 40 examples of textiles by Inuit seamstresses, whose work depicts aspects of the Inuit culture from everyday life to myth and legend. The exhibit opens its North American tour at the BMA, and in early December three of the Inuit artists will be at the museum to give tours of the exhibit and demonstrate how the wall hangings are made. The exhibit continues at the BMA, Art Museum Drive near Charles and 31st streets, through Jan. 30. Call (410) 396-6310.
