Van Gogh in Annapolis and Mardi Gras on the Horizon

Tonight I’m going to the premiere performance of Inventing Van Gogh and I’m excited about seeing it this play, because I really enjoyed Shooting Star by the same playwright Steven Dietz currently being performed at Everyman Theatre in Baltimore. You can read my review on the What’s Up Website.
Inventing Van Gogh. playing at Colonial Players, deals with the question of what is unique in the world of Art and does the “Master” overshadow his creation. I’ll be posting my review of the performance on Monday. But if you don’t want to wait until the reviews are published, the second ticket is half price when you go with a friend this weekend as well as on the evening of February 13th. Call their box office at 410-268-7373.
Saturday night there is a Mardi Gras benefit for Opportunity Builders a wonderful organization that provides work opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities by providing vocational training, employment services, recreational activities and support services. Tickets are $50, include a buffet dinner and silent auciton.
If you are looking ahead as far as making plans, The Mardi Gras Gala to benefit the Arts Council is coming up on February 19th and it is a glamourous and festive evening at the Loew’s Hotel downtown. Just think, if you don’t get around to celebrating Valentine’s Day on Monday the 14th, you can wait until Saturday the 19th. Tickets are $150 each and include dinner, drinks. dancing, and a silent auction ALL to Benefit Arts and Historical Preservation groups in Anne Arundel County.
