'A Thurber Carnival' begins three-weekend run

Liberty Showcase Theatre's production of "A Thurber Carnival" -- a collection of humorous sketches by James Thurber -- begins a three-weekend run at Winand Elementary School, 8301 Scotts Level Road, on Friday.

Under the direction of Allan Dale 3rd, the cast of 12 features Roman Gusso and Barbara Franklin in the favorite Thurber roles of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Mitty. Curtain times are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., with matinees next Sunday and Feb. 13 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $8. For further information call (410) 653-2917.

@ Among the three artists' works now on view at Resurgam, Susan Miltenberger's monoprints do not so much depict as capture the mood of the night ocean in their tones of black and gray. Barbara Cooper-Sullivan's paintings actually begin with photographs of public toilets; but after the paint is layered and scrubbed away, her canvases take on what the artist calls a "new perspective." And Sam Peters' prints rely on the use of color to convey the emotions this self-styled expressionist artist seeks. The exhibit runs through Feb. 12 at Resurgam Gallery, 910 S. Charles St. For information, call (410) 962-0513.

John Dorsey Ted Neeley and Carl Anderson, who starred as Jesus and Judas in the 1973 film "Jesus Christ Superstar," return to Baltimore for a six-day run of the road-show revival of the Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice rock opera. The same production seen here a year ago in the launch of its national tour, the show runs Feb. 1-6 at the Lyric Opera House. Mr. Neeley also starred in the original 1971 Broadway mounting of the show, which played 711 performances and produced a hit album -- and also a single record hit for Helen Reddy with the song "I Don't Know How to Love Him." Performances of "Jesus Christ Superstar" are at 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, 2 p.m. Saturday, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. next Sunday. Tickets range from $30 to $50. For information, call: (410) 625-1400, or TDD (410) 625-1407.
