Today, Judy shares her thoughts on Macabaret, the whimsically macabre musical revue now on stage at Baltimore's Stillpointe Theatre.

Written by Scott Keys and Rob Hartmann, Macabaret is a collection of darkly humorous story-songs dealing with everything from murderous spouses and evil cows to the Andrews Sisters and OJ Simpson. The Stillpointe Theatre cast is directed by Amanda Rife, with musical direction by Stacey Antoine.

Macabaret continues at Stillpointe Theatre through December 10. Click the show link for more information.
