Gilbert and Sullivan connoisseurs hold "The Gondoliers" in high regard. Sullivan's music is first-rate, filled with enough melodic invention to fuel two operettas. And if Gilbert hadn't already done so much with switched identities and contralto-types imparting secrets in the last scene, his libretto would be considered a decidedly original, clever little masterpiece. Young Victorian Theatre Company's production of "The Gondoliers," which closes this weekend at Roland Park Country School, provides a mostly satisfying celebration of the work's many qualities.

A zoo menagerie - including a parrot, a boa constrictor and an African pygmy hedgehog - greeted 5-year-old Finn Seamans of Odenton on Wednesday when he arrived at a courtyard between two office buildings in Elkridge. But the animals, provided by the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore , were only a preview of coming attractions. This month, Finn and his parents leave for a trip to California's wine country to admire giraffes and wildebeests at an African-style preserve, thanks to Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic.

Dozens of big U.S. corporations are considering leavingĀ the United StatesĀ in order to reduce their tax bills. But they'll be leaving the country only on paper. They'll still do as much business in the U.S. as they were doing before. The only difference is they'll no longer be "American" and won't have to pay nearly as much in taxes to the U.S. government. OK. But if they're no longer American citizens, they should no longer be able to spend a penny influencing American politics.

The city of Annapolis has ordered Uber, the company behind a popular ride-sharing application, to stop its service in the capital until it registers as a taxi company. Mayor Mike Pantelides said Monday it's important for Uber to follow the same regulations as the taxicabs that operate in Annapolis. "I'm happy to know there is another means of transportation that will help increase our city's mobility efforts, but I must also be diligent in insisting that they are regulated, just like our taxicabs, in an effort to keep our citizens and visitors safe," Pantelides said in a statement.

Dan Naor got his start in Baltimore 20 years ago, when he found a 16-acre waterfront property for sale and decided to make the leap into the local marina business. Today, the Inner Harbor is a vastly different place than it was in 1994, and Naor's Baltimore Marine Centers operates five marinas in the surrounding area. "In the beginning it was a little rough," said Naor, a native of Israel whose company now acts as an intermediary between Baltimore and some of its most well-heeled guests.

A listless west-side block of downtown Baltimore will undergo an energetic makeover if an idea generated by DIY-style theater troupes and local developer Winstead "Ted" Rouse comes to fruition. Their plan, submitted earlier this year when the Baltimore Development Corp. issued a request for proposals, envisions turning three abandoned buildings in the 400 block of N. Howard Street, between West Franklin and West Mulberry, into a hub of theater, dance and more. It could open as early as 2016.

More than 30 Maryland cab companies filed a lawsuit Thursday against the popular ride-sharing company Uber, alleging antitrust violations and demanding an unspecified amount of damages for upending the state's cab industry. The lawsuit, filed late Thursday in Baltimore Circuit Court, joins a string of legal actions against Uber as traditional taxicab companies and regulators across the country confront the company's cheaper and consumer-friendly army of drivers. Led by five major cab companies and their drivers, the lawsuit contends that Uber's surge-pricing model is akin to price-fixing, that its refusal to abide by traditional cab regulations creates an unfair marketplace, and that taken together, the company has interfered with cabdrivers' relationships with their clients.
