Crabtown so little time so much to do

One of the best things about Charm City is the array of entertainment options not far from your front door.  But what are Baltimore’s Best Bets? Let us tell you –

May 6 – (6 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. show; fully seated event). U.K. “Night After Night 2012” featuring Eddie Jobson, John Wetton and Terry Bozzio. Sound Stage, 124 Market Place. Tickets: $50-$75. Here’s the event site.

Super group alert! Super group alert! True this prog rock super group of the ‘70s featured a revolving cast of players from Yes, King Crimson, Roxy Music, and Soft Machine but they developed a beyond-loyal fan base that never found a replacement that was quite as good.

Now three main players – Bozzio, who was Frank Zappa’s drummer, Eddie Jobson whose bands included Jethro Tull and Roxy Music plus Zappa, and Wetton who was in Uriah Heep, King Crimson and Asia– are together for a short reunion tour. Do NOT miss out.

Now through May 13The Whipping Man, The Head Theatre, Center Stage, 700 N. Calvert St., Baltimore. Tickets: $10-45. Here’s the event site.

Jews, slaves and the Civil War. That’s the set up for the Whipping Man, the story of three Richmond Jews – one a former Confederate solider and two his former slaves – set around a Sedar Table. You just know that this play, written by Matthew Lopez and directed by Kwame KweiArmah is going to leave you with post-theatre topics for discussion.

May 10 (7 p.m.) – Madeleine Albright Book Talk, Central Branch of Enoch Pratt Free Library, 400 Cathedral Street. Free. Here’s the event site.

OK, we doubt the former Secretary of State is going to dish too much about her time in the White House or her thoughts about her successors.

Still, her discussion of her new memoir “Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937-1948” is bound to give you plenty of insights into what a true Washington insider thinks about the most recent state of our union.
