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.

Burlesque Calendar

Hey, we’ve created a calendar for burlesque-esque things going on in Baltimore.   As we find out about things going on, we’ll add them to the list and keep it up to date.  You should be able to see the link over there on the right.
