Toby's Dinner Theatre in Columbia has always been a regional treasure for theatergoers, but the current production of "Memphis: The Musical" proves that no smash hit is too big for Toby's to produce with pizazz. The theater's intimate in-the-round venue brings the action so close to audiences that they become part of it, expanding the emotional impact into new dimensions. With book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music and lyrics by David Bryan, "Memphis: The Musical" ran on Broadway from 2009 to 2012, and captured four Tony Awards in 2010, including best musical.

David Byrne [Todo Mundo] *** cds With Big Love: Hymnal, David Byrne pens a batch of clean but knowing paeans to the polygamist lifestyle featured on the HBO show starting its third season this month. The compositions conjure images of Byrne performing - his silver hair, an owlish expression, upright and robed - in front of a congregation. But this is Byrne we're talking about, so most of these pieces, with their teasing, witty titles ("Exquisite Whiteness," "The Breastplate of Righteousness")

It's late at night, and a worried-looking, middle-aged businessman is standing alone at the edge of his suburban, backyard swimming pool lost in thought. It has been a day of mounting business debts, as well as threats on his life from a menacing rival. And now, as an anxious wife waits upstairs, he holds a little, blue Viagra pill in the palm of his hand. No, it's not Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini), of The Sopranos. It's Bill Henrickson (Bill Paxton), of Big Love, an intriguing new series about a Utah polygamist with three wives and three families all living in the same cul-de-sac.

Sarah Johns herself will tell you she's a "traditional kinda girl." For her debut CD, Big Love in a Small Town, the country-music newcomer didn't want too much pop polish applied to her sound. "Honey, I love Hank Williams, music like that - real country music," says the native Kentuckian. "If it was up to me, I would've put fiddles and steel all over [the album]. It would've been nothing but shuffles." In concert Sarah Johns and George Strait perform at 1st Mariner Arena, 201 W. Baltimore St., at 7:30 Friday night.

"It was a compulsion. I had no other choice," Katherine Needleman said regarding what lead her down the path to a career in music. "I would've been a pianist except my technique was too limited. " Though she's experimented with many other instruments, Needleman, 34, who moved from Iowa to Ellicott City when she was 7 and now lives in Dickeyville, finally settled on the oboe while at college and has been the principal oboist with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra since 2003. Since that time, she was been a part of nearly all BSO performances and is especially looking forward to playing the Strauss Concerto next season.

BIG LOVE -- HBO Home Video / $99.98 When the teasers for HBO's new series, Big Love, first came out, a television show about a family of polygamists seemed indescribably sleazy. In the series' first complete season, being released Tuesday on DVD, Bill Henrickson (Bill Paxton) has three wives (Jeanne Tripplehorn, Chloe Sevigny and Ginnifer Goodwin) who live in adjoining homes, and with whom he has fathered seven children. Because polygamy is illegal, the Henricksons lead lives of subterfuge and deceit.

An in-depth profile of underpants bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab by National Public Radio suggests that he was a rebellious teenager offended by his parents' bourgeois lifestyle and preoccupied with thoughts of sex. Any of us who grew up in the 1960s can understand where this kid is coming from. We thought of ourselves as free spirits caged by our parents' narrow, middle-class values and, like young Umar Farouk, their excesses truly offended us. Like Umar Farouk, we thought constantly about sex -- although this determinedly chaste young man could not wait to marry, while we happily embraced the sin of love-the-one-you're-with.

How do we love thee, oh small towns of Maryland? Let us count the ways. When earlier this year, a Budget Travel magazine poll named Lewisburg, W.Va., as "America's Coolest Small Town," it got us thinking: aren't Maryland's small towns worth bragging about, too? Apparently Baltimore Sun readers think so. In an online poll, we asked you to name some of the top small towns in the state, and a slew of candidates emerged. Yet one town stood out among the pack: historic Rock Hall, a scenic fishing village on the Eastern Shore.

A play taking a contemporary spin on an ancient Greek classic is the season's major offering from The Theatre at AACC. American playwright Charles Mee's "Big Love" adapts the plot of Aeschylus' "The Suppliant Women" — 50 brides who flee arranged marriages with 50 prospective grooms. Here grooms arrive by helicopter at the Italian villa where the brides are already ensconced and have their own ideas for a welcoming party that may include song and dance. At a rehearsal last week, four Anne Arundel Community College students from the 11-member cast enjoyed rehearsing dance moves with Lynda Fitzgerald, the coordinator of performing arts in dance, who was pleased at their progress.
