In Ages of Man, actor Marc Horwitz provides audiences with a new definition of tough. Horwitz might not chase criminals for a living or enter burning houses to rescue trapped children. All he has to do is stand on stage by himself and talk to people who aren't there. He just has to deliver 110 minutes of sonnets and Shakespearean dialogue while shifting between two dozen roles. He merely must act his heart out inches from a room full of blank-eyed, arms-crossed, foot-jiggling theatergoers who can see every drop of sweat trickling down his face.

Murray Horwitz is a Renaissance man in an age of specialists. He's been a professional circus clown, songwriter, playwright, public radio executive and arts administrator. He's directed TV soap operas, worked for the New York State Assembly and appeared on stage with performers ranging from Jonathan Winters to Wynton Marsalis. "Specialization is highly overrated. We are living in an age when everybody is encouraged to specialize ... and we're discouraged from knowing anything outside of our own particular ken," he says.

Though the Orioles don't consider finding a closer to be a top priority this winter, they have been talking with the representative for free-agent reliever Octavio Dotel. Team president Andy MacPhail spoke again with Danny Horwitz a few days ago. Neither side will disclose specifics, but the Orioles are believed to be exploring a one-year deal. Dotel, 34, went 2-1 with a 4.11 ERA and 11 saves with the Kansas City Royals and Atlanta Braves last season. The Orioles consider him an option to replace Chris Ray, who is expected to miss the entire 2008 season after undergoing ligament-reconstructive surgery on his right elbow.

While the art of storytelling will serve as the backbone for the Performance Workshop Theatre's newest production, the play is far from soft-voiced readings of books pulled from the children's section at the library. St. Nicholas, by acclaimed Irish playwright Conor McPherson, best known for Olivier Award-winner The Weir, features a jaded Dublin theater critic who describes how a midlife crisis led him to chase after a young actress and ultimately landed him in the lair of a few powerful vampires.

In the 10 short works being presented under the title "The Portable Pinter" by the Performance Workshop Theatre Company, people talk at each other, past each other, about each other, but rarely to each other.Harold Pinter is a playwright who is deeply suspicious of words. And yet words are the major tools with which he must convey the difficulty of communication.At Fell's Point Corner Theatre, Marc Horwitz's direction is a bit broad at times for such subtle pieces, but he successfully emphasizes the communications gap and also manages to draw connections between certain playlets -- even when the characters within those playlets are unable to connect with each other.

It's lunchtime. But the Mayor and his crew aren't eating. They never do. The midday break is better spent in the burgundy leather chairs and stools at the back of Fader's tobacco shop in Towson. Bob Fryer sits down with a Pedrone, a six-inch hand-rolled cigar from Nicaragua. He cuts the tip with a palm-sized tool, pulls out a lighter and draws the smoke in quick, kiss-like puffs until an orange flame jumps from the tip and a fragrant curl of smoke streams upward.

The impulse to help those devastated by Hurricane Katrina has generated fundraising concerts throughout the country, including one in Baltimore equally generous in intent and content. Organized by pianist Lura Johnson and her husband, violinist Matthew Horwitz, the event Monday night at Central Presbyterian Church brought together a stellar lineup of locally based talent, headlined by the almost legendary keyboard artist Leon Fleisher. In all, 16 musicians, including Baltimore Symphony Orchestra players and faculty members from area schools, volunteered their services to benefit relief funds of the Red Cross and the American Symphony Orchestra League.

The art of reading fiction aloud has been largely lost in this era of electronic entertainment. But once upon a time, reading aloud was an important form of pop culture. Now the Performance Workshop Theatre Company has revived this art in a series of readings of short stories written by playwrights. Judging from last weekend's double bill of Luigi Pirandello's "In Silence" and Tennessee Williams' "Portrait of a Girl in Glass," the readings, jointly titled [un]told stories, are a wonderfully rich way to spend an evening.

WASHINGTON - There's plenty of awful news flowing from the White House these days. The nation is in "an energy crisis." The economy is "sputtering." So says President Bush, almost daily, before adding that he knows just the solutions. They happen to be part of his domestic agenda. The answer to the nation's energy woes? Boost domestic energy supplies - for example, open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska to oil drilling. The prescription for a sliding economy? A $1.6 trillion tax cut. The president's alarmist words come even as experts question the severity of the nation's energy problems and point to some positive signs that the economy, while clearly slowing, is not sinking into serious recession, despite the 13.5 percent plunge in the Dow Jones industrial average over the past 10 trading sessions.
