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)

"If you can make it there, you'll make it anywhere." "Life is a cabaret." When you hear these phrases, the music sounds in your head. That's one indication of how well songwriters John Kander and Fred Ebb integrate music and lyrics. And, when they're writing for Broadway, as they have in such shows as "Chicago," "Cabaret" and "Kiss of the Spider Woman," they weave their songs so neatly into the fabric of the shows, they often seem inseparable. Nine years ago, however, Scott Ellis, Susan Stroman and David Thompson discovered new and witty contexts for Kander and Ebb's greatest hits, as well as some of their lesser-known gems.

It all started when Veronica Matricardi spun in her wheelchair in the middle of the stage and yelled, "I'm back, I'm back!" It was June and she had just seen a show at the Colonial Players theater house in Annapolis. Other audience members were filing out, but not Matricardi. She longed to experience the joy of being onstage again. She didn't have to wait long. Joe Thompson, director of Colonial Players' Cabaret for Kids, was there and invited Matricardi to join the cast. "My dream has been to become an actor again," said Matricardi, who in 1979 as a teen-ager performed in a Colonial Players production of Rumpelstiltskin before suffering a stroke the next year.
