Theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck joins Tom with another of her weekly reviews of regional productions. Today she spotlights A Wonder in My Soul, a tale of friendship and family set in the heart of Baltimore which is playing at Baltimore Center Stage through next weekend.

Written by acclaimed playwright Marcus Gardley and directed by Daniel Bryant, A Wonder in My Soul is the story of Swann (Harriett D. Foy) and Gwynn (Wandachristine), two best friends pressured to make an important decision about their Baltimore beauty shop as the forces of gentrification begin to impact their neighborhood. The play was originally set in Chicago, the city in which it premiered in early 2017, but Gardley has rewritten it with a Charm City setting for its Baltimore debut.

A Wonder in My Soul continues at Baltimore Center Stage through next Sunday, December 23. Get more information about ticketing here.
