Unusual musicals at Fell's Point Corner Theatre

"Weird Romance," two one-act musicals with a score by Alan Menken and David Spencer, opens Jan. 27, at Fell's Point Corner Theatre, 251 S. Ann St. (The opening was originally scheduled for Jan. 20.) The first musical, "The Girl Who Was Plugged In," is a futuristic satire of advertising. The second, "Her Pilgrim Soul," is a time-travel story about a husband who strengthens his marriage through revelations about a previous life.

Theatrical direction is by Terry J. Long; musical direction is by Robert Gee. Alan Menken was the longtime collaborator of the late Howard Ashman, a Baltimore native, with whom he wrote "Beauty and the Beast," "Aladdin," "The Little Mermaid" and "Little Shop of Horrors."

Show times for "Weird Romance" are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, through Feb. 26. Tickets are $12. For more information, call (410) 276-7837.

@ The three sonatas of Brahms may be the greatest pieces for violin and piano written in the 19th century. Each inhabits a LTC different universe: the G major's is powerful and optimistic; the A major's is radiant and sweet; and the D minor's is fiery and dramatic. The three sonatas will be performed at 8 p.m. Saturday by two of the area's most-admired musicians: Baltimore Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Herbert Greenberg and Peabody professor of piano Marian Hahn.

The concert will take place in Smith Theater on the Howard Community College campus. Tickets are $18 general admission, for seniors and $8 for full-time students. Call (410) 715-0034 for more information.

Stephen Wigler The sculptures of G. David Burch are composed of granite and bronze and, the artist says, they are abstract but spring from subconscious images that are contained in the mind. They are images of creatures that no longer exist, inherited genetically from prehistoric ancestors, and Burch hopes that these images will have the ability through his art to evoke similar images stored in the subconscious minds of his viewers. Nine of his works, including "Oracle II," shown here, are on view through Feb. 5 at the Gallery on the Circle, 18 State Circle in Annapolis.
