a chorus line musical
- In our area, nothing tops L'Etoile Ballet The Russian Ballet Academy of Maryland's spiffy, renovated studios on Red Branch Road in Columbia. Formerly The Ballet Royale Academy (which hosted fabulous dancing in its two decade history), Svetlana Kravtsova and her dancing husband, Vadim Pijicov are the new tenants.
- The run of "Chicago" at the Hippodrome (now through Sunday) represents a homecoming of sorts for cast member Robin Masella, who plays Liz, the condemned prisoner who shot her husband after he popped his gum one-time-too-many.
- Although it could use some fine-tuning of dance numbers and some better singing voices, the Olney Theatre Centre staging of the 1975 musical 'A Chorus Line' has energy and heart.
- But then, as now, old Baltimore needed a lot of fixing and William Donald Schaefer was in his high neighborhood mode. He did it well and had the backup of some pretty amazing people.
