Opening night of Closer tonight!


Don’t forget, opening night of Closer with Viola Van Wilde of Gilded Lily Burlesque is tonight, not to mention a ton of other talented folks!  Bar scene and free food afterward!  Check out the details below.

Thursday, February 18th – March 13th 2010

By Patrick Marber

There’s a thin, shaky line between love and hate… and it always seems the people we love most are the ones we hurt most often. In Closer, playwright Patrick Marber gives us a brilliant and painfully honest exploration of the brutal anatomy of modern romance. Modern day London hosts four strangers as they meet, fall in love, fall out of love and back again in this poignant, dark sketch of one or our favorite pop culture topics- The Relationship.

Thursday 2/18 at 8pm, Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm, Sunday 2/28 at 3pm.  General Admission $15, Students and Seniors $12. Tickets are available at the door or through Brown Paper Tickets.

The Nearly Naked Truth this Friday!

Don’t forget, Gilded Lily Burlesque is performing Friday night!  If you’ve come to just one of our sessions, the odds are pretty good someone from Gilded Lily posing.  This is possibly the best burlesque show Alexis and I’ve seen in Baltimore (or anywhere else).  It’s one thing to see Viola, Sable, Paco, Maria, Luna, Lena, or Lucille sit still for a sketchpad, it’s something else entirely to see their art.

The Nearly Naked Truth

Come join Baltimore’s premiere burlesque troupe, Gilded Lily Burlesque, on Friday May 22nd for The Nearly Naked Truth! It’s a nostalgic romp back to the days when men were men and dames were kittens. These lovely ladies (with the help of Paco Fish, outstanding news reporter) will help you navigate the slippery slopes of sex, drugs, plaid pants and communism.

But, don’t get too uptight daddio! After witnessing a spicy shimmy here and a saucy shake there, you’ll be happily sliding down that slope, too! So let Gilded Lily Burlesque reveal to you the Nearly Naked Truth- it’s the American thing to do!

TWO SHOWS! 7:30 and 10:30.
Tickets are $15 and will be available in advance. Watch this space for a link. THIS WILL SELL OUT!
