There's a restaurant scene partway through Act 2 of "La Cage aux Folles" that spotlights Christopher Sieber, playing Albin, the reigning drag queen of Saint-Tropez in the propulsive and entertaining production at the Hippodrome this week. Albin, decked out like an overstuffed Margaret Thatcher and still hurt by perceived slights from the most important people in his life, is called upon to sing a little something. Sieber's whole body subtly softens and seems to glow as he sings in gentle, conversational tones: "Hold this moment fast, and live and love as hard as you know; make this moment last, because the best of times is now. " No great shakes as a lyric or a tune, but Sieber's nuanced singing sells it so affectingly that you'd swear it was the most divinely inspired song in the Broadway canon, a bittersweet anthem as much for those in love as for those who feel threatened.

The leadership of Baltimore's Senate delegation was on the line yesterday in a primary election marked by one fewer legislative district but no shortage of choices.Voter turnout in the city was light for most of the day. By 7 p.m. -- an hour before polls closed -- 27 percent of registered voters had voted, election officials said.State Sen. John A. Pica Jr. faced a stiff challenge from Del. Curtis S. Anderson in a bitter contest in Northeast Baltimore's 43rd District. The race took a particularly nasty turn in the past few weeks, as the candidates fought over the support of homeless advocate Bea Gaddy and traded charges over an inflammatory brochure calling Senator Pica a liar.
