`ANGELS' AT SPOTLIGHTERS

The lowdown -- A little theater that has never been daunted by large endeavors, the Audrey Herman Spotlighters Theatre is taking on Tony Kushner's magnum opus, Angels in America, this season. Kushner's broad, imaginative canvas juxtaposes Mormonism, AIDS, politics and, of course, angels. Part one, Millennium Approaches, opens tomorrow. Part two, Perestroika, is scheduled for June. Under Gabriel Shanks' direction, the cast of Millennium Approaches is headed by Richard Goldberg, Patrick Kilpatrick, Terry J. Long, Shannon Maddox and Don Mullins. After the Oct. 29 performance, a panel discussion on AIDS treatments and research developments titled "What Happens Next?" will feature speakers from Chase-Brexton Health Services, Planned Parenthood and the University of Maryland Institute of Human Virology.

If you go -- Showtimes at the Spotlighters, 817 St. Paul St., are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays, through Nov. 12. Tickets are $20. Call 410-752-1225 or go to spotlighters.org.

THE COLOR OF LIFE

The lowdown -- Baltimore photographer Ben Cricchi's edgy portraits of neighborhood young people in Baltimore's Edmondson Village are on display at Sowebo Arts Gallery in Southwest Baltimore. All the pictures were taken at an outdoor community festival this summer, and Cricchi's black-and-white prints capture the flavor of big city street life while conveying a sweetness and innocence that announce his subjects' unconditional acceptance of the camera's presence. Also on view are color photographs of water-damaged homes in New Orleans by Ryan "RaRah" Stevenson, street shots by Frank Klein and graffiti art by Adam Stab.

If you go -- The Photography Graffiti Show runs through Oct. 29 at Sowebo Arts Gallery, 1111 Hollins St. Call 410-244-5707 or go to soweboarts.org. .. GLENN MCNATT
