(June 3-5) What the Fool?!?
If you find yourself in Baltimore this weekend, Quest Theatre Company presents "What the Fool?!?" at Theatre Project on West Preston Street. The site-specific performance is actually set at Theatre Project: The venue awakens the soul power of an otherwise bland man with a terrible comb-over.
