Explore Baltimore: Trevor Noah Comes to Town

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017 by The Professor

What: Trevor Noah in Baltimore

Where: Hippodrome at Franc-Merrik Pac

When: November 4th at 7- 10pm (Unfortunately, the other date is sold out!)

The South African television, radio host and comedian, Trevor Noah, will be making an appearance in Baltimore! The host of The Daily Show will be doing stand-up comedy at the Hippodrome, and has already SOLD OUT one show, forcing them to book another date! SO YOU ARE IN LUCK! But hurry, the last show sold out in two days.

Trevor Noah has become one of the leading figures in modern pop culture and media. In his short time with The Daily Show, he has been able to accomplish so much in satirical political commentary– including getting a White House interview with Former President Barack Obama. He also finished the first quarter of 2017 with one of the highest rating The Daily Show has ever seen. If you can’t make at to his stand-up show, I encourage you to check out his work! He is a talented commentator, and performer.

Monday, April 10th, 2017 by Cara Hullings

What: Psycho at The Senator

Where: The Senator, 5904 York Rd

When: Wed. April 19th, 7pm; Sun. April 23th, 10am; Mon. 24th, 1pm; Tues. April 25th, 1pm

As part of their Spring Revival Series, The Senator is showing the classic horror movie, Psycho. This Hitchcock thriller, known for its iconic scene that takes place in the shower, is a must-see, especially in a cool theater like The Senator. Follow the secretary, Marion Crane, as she stops at a remote motel after spending time on the run. Here she meets Norman Bates, the high strung motel owner who loves taxidermy and has some difficult love for his mother. This black and white film already has an old time feel, and in the old fashioned Senator, you’ll feel like you’re watching it in the theaters back in 1960. Don’t miss this chance to appreciate this classic the classic way and be scared!

What: Beauty and the Beast

Where: The Senator Theatre (5904 York Rd, Baltimore, MD 21212)

When: See showtimes on The Senator’s wesbsite

A “tale as old as time” comes to life alongside Lumière the candlestick and Cogsworth the clock in the 2017 adaptation of the Disney classic, Beauty and the Beast. Now playing at The Senator in Baltimore, Beauty and the Beast tells the story of a young woman offers herself as a prisoner to a terrifying beast to free her father. Little does she know, the heinous captor is actually a prince under a magical spell. Dancing teapots, a beautiful and classical soundtrack, and a magical story are brought together in the version of the fairytale that most of us are familiar with, but there are whole new elements in the 2017 version that make a cultural statement, not to mention the phenomenal cast.

With 10 albums, Grammy nominations, and an Emmy nomination under their belt, Bowling for Soup may have developed as a band, but they claim to be the same guys they were 21 years ago. This means they are the same guys who put on some great, high-energy shows like this show at the Soundstage is bound to be. Buy your tickets here before they sell out, and make sure to get to the show early so you don’t miss Stacked Like Pancakes (a WLOY favorite) when they open!

What: Beautiful- The Carole King Musical

Where: The Hippodrome Theater, 12 N Eutaw St

When: January 24th-29th (Times)

Throughout the week, The Hippodrome will be putting on Beautiful, a musical that follows the life of Carole King and her rise to fame. Known to my generation as the voice of the Gilmore Girls theme and to past generations as the voice for their time, Carole King has left an ever lasting mark on our culture that this musical showcases. Beautiful tells the story of how Carole King fought her way into the record business at a young age, wrote songs with her friends/husband, and started her successful solo career. Along the plot of the story, this musical features many of King’s amazing hits like “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” and “You’ve Got a Friend”. With this inspiring story and great music, Beautiful will have you feeling the Earth move under your seat in the Hippodrome.
