Danny Hoch brings his show to Theatre Project

The Village Voice named him one of "culture's best and brightest" of 1993. The New York Times described him as "fiercely talented." And Newsday called him "a superb and compassionate technician." Beginning Thursday, Baltimoreans will be able to see what this praise is all about when 23-year-old Danny Hoch brings his one-man show, "Some People," to the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St.

An anthology of a dozen characters ranging from a West Indian disc jockey to a Polish plumber to a Hispanic man mourning his son, "Some People" is coming here prior to a fall opening at New York's Public Theater. It will be filmed for HBO. Show times are 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through Aug. 27. Tickets are $14. For more information, call (410) 752-8558. "Migrations," to open at School 33 Saturday, will contain work that either emerges or submerges in the act of creation. Richard L. Dana's paintings begin as abstractions, but as he works, figures and objects emerge that relate to mythology and history. Similarly, Josephine Murray begins with abstract line and color, out of which come figures relating to autobiographical stories, as in her "Black Stream" pictured here. Laurel Fannin's paintings and sculpture, on the other hand, have figurative elements that merge into the material of the work, either canvas or wood. "Migrations" continues through Sept. 23 at School 33 Art Center, 1427 Light Street. For information, call (410) 396-4641.

John Dorsey "The Night of the Iguana," Tennessee Williams' 1961 play about the denizens of a decrepit Mexican hotel, begins performances Tuesday at Olney Theatre, 2001 Route 108 in Olney. Staged by Olney artistic director Jim Petosa, the production stars well-known Washington actors Philip Goodwin, as the defrocked Rev. T. Lawrence Shannon, and Richard Bauer, as the 97-year-old poet, Nonno.

Curtain times are 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 7:30 p.m. Sundays, with matinees at 2:30 p.m. Sundays and Aug. 27, and at 2 p.m. Sept. 1, through Sept. 11. Tickets are $22-$27. For further information call (301) 924-3400.
