TRAFFIC ADVISORY for Saturday, October 20 matinee:
We’re open! The Baltimore Running Festival (marathon) will cause delays and detours until midafternoon. Evening performance patrons won’t be affected. Matinee patrons need to add about 40 minutes to their travel time, according to Baltimore City Department of Transportation spokesmen. They recommend the following highway route to avoid the marathon:
From points North, East and West: Take Baltimore Beltway 695 to I-83 South exit. Follow I-83 south to the Guilford Avenue exit. Take Guilford Avenue south (it is also called South Street when you reach downtown). At Water Street, turn right to reach our partner Arrow Parking garage.
If you are coming from Washington D.C., and points south: Take I-95 North to the Baltimore Beltway 695 toward Towson. Follow 695 around the city to I-83 South exit. Follow I-83 south to the Guilford Avenue exit. Take Guilford Avenue south (it is also called South Street when you reach downtown). At Water Street, turn right to reach our partner Arrow Parking garage.

She Stoops to Conquer, 2pm
By Oliver Goldsmith
September 28 – October 21, 2018
“Ask me no questions, and I’ll tell you no fibs.”
Kate Hardcastle has a love problem: Her prospective fiancé is tongue-tied around women of high class but a charmer with the help. Silliness and satire follow when he mistakes Lady Kate for a serving maid – and she decides to play along. Enjoy a bawdy, witty, comic feast of practical jokes and romantic mix-ups from the 1700s.
