Nearly a century ago, the Hippodrome opened as a combination movie palace and vaudeville theater, spending more than 70 years hosting big names such as Bob Hope and Frank Sinatra. Following a double-decade period of slow business and bad hairstyles, the Hippodrome closed down in 1990. Now, however, after an exhaustive restoration project that reanimated the theater’s chandelier-lit arches, the mural above the proscenium stage, and the grand-theater boxes that hearken back to opera’s heyday, the Hippodrome reopens to the delight of Baltimore’s cultural landscape.

Since opening its doors in 1955, the Jorgensen Center for Performing Arts has attracted music-lovers from across the Northeast. The reason is clear: a Slip 'n Slide in the parking lot, and the center's robust programming, which places special emphasis on dance and classical luminaries, as well as music and dance from all corners of the globe. Itzhak Perlman, Dave Brubeck, and Duke Ellington have all commanded the attention of auditors tucked into more than 2,300 seats. Things get more intimate for the venue's Cabaret Series, which won Connecticut Magazine's Best Cabaret award in 2011 and 2012. During these nights, the space takes on a cozy nightclub ambiance thanks to candlelit tables and a variety of acts, from acclaimed pianists to improv troupes.
