The Week's Best

THE WEEK'S BEST

November 20, 2003

CDs

Pink continues the party she started on 2001's M!ssundaztood on her new CD, Try This. It's not perfect, and it's not wildly thought-provoking, but it is fun. page 30.

Music

Rufus Wainwright, a literate, die-hard romantic with a strong love for opera and all its grandness, tries to find a place in the pop-music landscape and draws masses of fans along the way. page 29.

Stage

This weekend, Peabody Opera Theatre offers the two tragedies and one comedy that make up Il Trittico: Il Tabarro (The Cloak), Suor Angelica (Sister Angelica) and Gianni Schicchi. page 14.

Eats

China Best, which has been around for more than nine years, offers a rarity -- sushi served buffet-style. The fish is fresh and mostly tasty, and the items get replenished often. page 20.

Scene

Baltimore loves bingo -- and "Gay Bingo" at the Hippo, with its sarcastic caller and community spirit, is no exception, drawing tons of players every week. The event also raises money for the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Baltimore. page 36.

Where: The Charles Theatre, 1711 N. Charles St.

When: Tonight from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
