Founded six years ago, Bay Theatre Company represents a major success story in the realm of Annapolis professional nonprofit theater. Since its first show - Christopher Durang's comedy Beyond Therapy in December 2002 in a nondescript space in Truxtun Park's Griscom Building - Bay co-founders Lucinda Merry-Browne and Janet Luby have been working a little magic. They moved a year later to the company's current home on West Garrett Place, a ground-level suite that once housed a computer company, and small theatrical gems have kept on coming.

Sondheim Tonight! -- the final offering in Everyman Theatre's cabaret series -- doesn't have a plot. But as performed by Judy Simmons, there's at least one small play in this polished, enchanting evening. The miniplay is "I Never Do Anything Twice," which Stephen Sondheim wrote for the character of a madam in the 1976 movie The Seven Percent Solution. The comic song springs to bawdy life as Simmons relates scene after scene about the madam and her most colorful customers, accentuating each double entendre just enough to let us in on the joke without overplaying it. "Anything Twice" is one of almost 20 songs on Simmons' hour-long bill, devoted to the work of the greatest Broadway songwriter of his generation.

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.

French singer Claire Lise turned an interest in theater into a career in cabaret. Lise, who plays An die Musik Live tomorrow night, was a budding actor who turned to music as a child. She wrote her first song at age 9 and moved to Paris after completing school. In Paris, she met a pianist, and the two began writing and arranging authentic cabaret numbers. Though Lise uses a traditional approach (accordion, piano, bass, guitar and vocals), she writes songs that resonate with audiences today, she said.

Toys aren't the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the dark, Weimar Republic-era musical Cabaret. But there's a toy train in director Molly Smith's divinely re-imagined production at Washington's Arena Stage. The train elicits appreciative chuckles from the audience when it makes its first appearance; when it reappears, however, this toy is anything but a plaything. The miniature train is just one of the inventive approaches Smith and her choreographer, David Neumann, have found to John Kander and Fred Ebb's 1966 musical.
