It performed at the Spear Center inside the Rouse Building at Columbia Town Center.If this location sounds familiar (and it should), there's a perfectly simple explanation.

Vernon Gray, Democratic Howard County councilman.The evening was masked as a celebration of his 15 years of service, albeit he made the announcement of his decision to run once again for the Howard County Council, instead of seeking election for Howard County executive.
