Eric Conway recital

Eric Conway is one of the busiest - and most gifted - musicians in the Baltimore area. When he isn't teaching piano and music theory at Morgan State University, he's accompanying a soloist or a choir, or playing chamber music, or working as a member of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra - or making a solo appearance, as he will tonight.

Conway will break in a newly acquired grand piano at Villa Julie College with a program that offers works by Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Ravel and Gershwin.

The recital is at 8 tonight in the Inscape Theatre, Villa Julie College, 1525 Greenspring Valley Road. Tickets are $15. Call 410-602-7433.

`Baltimore Women'

Just in time for Women's History Month, the Theatre Project is presenting Female Parts: Stories of Baltimore Women. Created from three months of workshops led by director Missy House, this uplifting multimedia piece tells the stories of 14 women of varied ages and ethnicities who come together in a community that transcends individual differences.

Female Parts is the inaugural production of House's new locally based company called ALIVE Productions, an organization devoted to using the collaborative creative process to promote social justice.

Show times at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., are 8 p.m. today-Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $12. Call 410-752-8558.

Woman's view of the Bard

The female characters may not fare too well in Shakespeare's Othello, but they get another chance in Paula Vogel's Desdemona: A Play About a Handkerchief, which begins performances tonight at Company 13.

Vogel's radical reinterpretation of the tragedy is told from the women's point of view. The three-person cast consists of Megan Martinez as Desdemona, Kate Michelsen as Emilia and Kerry Brady as Bianca. Direction is by Jamie Sinsz.

Company 13 performs at the Top Floor, 5440 Harford Road. Show times are 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays, through March 20. Tickets are $8. Call 443-691-7040.
