Theatre Thursday: Othello with Laurence Fishburne

October 25th, 2012 by Joelle Hernandez

November 8, 2012 7-8:30pm

The Walters Art Museum 600 N.Charles Street Baltimore, MD 21201

Come to the Walters Art Museum and watch Laurence Fishburne star as Othello, in the 1995 film interpretation of Shakespeare’s play. This more modern presentation of the classic story provides the viewer with another interpretation of this tragic, but thrilling tale! Duped by the jealous and petty Iago into believing that his beloved wife Desdemona has been unfaithful, Othello takes impulsive action that will haunt him until his dying day. This movie is a great way to prep for the engaging discussion of Othello next Thursday evening with Kwame Kwei-Armah, Artistic Director of CENTERSTAGE, and Leslie King-Hammond, Graduate Dean Emeritus and Founding Director for the Center for Race and Culture at MICA.

The Scottish Firecracker: Sheena Easton Live

October 22nd, 2012 by The Professor

Sheena Easton graces an intimate stage in Hanover

-by Radio RockonTour host Timothy Tilghman

seaston1018
`80’s singing sensation Sheena Easton came to Hanover, Maryland, on October 18, 2012. All dolled up in a tight black pantsuit, she no longer flaunts her sexy attributes, now projecting a subtle matronly image on stage these days. However, her accent is just as saucy and alluring still fueling Easton’s ageless feminine magnetism.

Not exactly a disco-pop-rocker these days, Easton has switched stage gears appearing as a casual cabaret act. Joe Sparker is the tour’s musical director handling keyboards and backing vocals. Her support musicians are Dave Hart on guitar, Eric Tewalt on Saxophone, flute and backing vocals, Phillip Ingram on vocals, and hometown champion Earl Campbell on drums.

Easton jovially interacted with the house crowd talking openly about herself, her popular singing career, and her displeasure about aging with her 54th birthday looming soon on the horizon. She eagerly thanked everyone for coming out on a school night to party with her in concert. After she paused in performance to sip her tea, she quipped it was from Long Island.

Easton’s repertoire contained several cover songs. She even commented herself confirming that it had been quite a while since she had a hit single cresting on the top of the charts. Both Easton and Phillip Ingram shared duet vocals on a couple of love ballads together. Her engaging personae was sprightly and sparked spontaneous laughter throughout the Thursday night with her loyal fans.

Easton polled the patrons on whether she should sing her slutty songs on stage. They roared in approval for her to do so. Unfortunately, her lackluster dance-beat medley of “U Got The Look”, “Sugar Walls” and “The Glamorous Life” was rather disappointing in delivery. It was her signature Top 40 hits that were the highlights of her appearance. The vivacious “Strut”, “Morning Train”, and 007 classic “For Your Eyes Only” were truly the tiptop tunes of the entire evening.

Rams Head Center Stage is essentially a brand new venue that opened recently in Anne Arundel County. However, there were some impaired visual blind spots depending on far from center view one was seated inside. The show went on too quickly really, but a splendid time was had by all, and her audience clearly enjoyed themselves seeing their beloved icon.

Sheena Easton, Rams Head Center Stage,  Hanover, Maryland October 18, 2012 setlist: (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher * Almost Over You * The Lover In Me * How Deep Is The Ocean * How Sweet It Is * U Got The Look > Sugar Walls > The Glamorous Life * We’ve Got Tonight * Strut * In The Winter * Say A Little Prayer > House Is Not A Home > One Less Bell To Answer * Telefone (Long Distance Affair) * 9 To 5 (Morning Train) * Anyway * For Your Eyes Only
