Paradox. Club Orpheus. 14Karat Cabaret.Don't look for these in the Fodor's guide to Baltimore.

COMEDY MASTERS OF IMPROV There's no telling what to expect when comedians Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood get in front of an audience. The whole auditorium's a stage to these masters of improv, who hit the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall Saturday for the first time since their sellout 2005 show. Both comedians have done time on Whose Line Is It Anyway? and have performed with such venerable comedy troupes as Second City and Theatersports. You might also recognize them from appearances on The Drew Carey Show.

Classic movies are returning to the Senator this weekend, part of an effort to derail the scheduled April 20 foreclosure auction of the 70-year-old North Baltimore landmark. Bob Fosse's 1972 Cabaret, with Liza Minnelli in her Oscar-winning role, and Christopher Lee in 1958's Horror of Dracula kick off what outgoing owner Tom Kiefaber plans as a series of classic-film screenings, with proceeds used to defray operating costs and work toward bringing current the theater's mortgage. Cabaret, which won eight Oscars (and probably would have won nine, had a little film called The Godfather not won Best Picture)

She came, she saw, she conquered all inhibitions.In two cabaret shows that left little to the imagination, porno star turned performance artist Annie Sprinkle offered the audience at Maryland Art Place last weekend this message: What strikes one person as pornography will strike another as a post-pornographic, postmodern, deconstructive discourse.Not that she used all those ten-dollar words, but in her breathy sing-song voice she said -- or sighed -- as much.Describing Ms. Sprinkle's bluntly ironic show-and-tell act stretches to the limit what may safely be written in a family newspaper.

Kurt Weill, who was born 100 years ago and died 50 years ago, left an extraordinary mark on the 20th century. Keenly aware of how the darkest impulses of human nature were being unleashed in the early decades of the century, Weill used music -- and piercing texts by the likes of Bertold Brecht -- as a means of analysis and protest. From full-scale satire and irony in such music-theater classics as "The Three-Penny Opera" and "Mahagonny" to intimate cabaret songs, Weill's creations have a uniquely affecting power.

Who knew school could be so much fun? At "Cabaret for Kids," formally clad guests toured the Children's Guild Baltimore school, finding new adventures around every corner. In one hallway, an a capella group from Johns Hopkins University, the All Nighters, serenaded. Around the corner, a tarot card reader awaited. Buffets lined some corridors, while a magician roamed others. And this was only the warm-up. The big show was yet to come: a cabaret performance by guild faculty members and supporters.
