May 18-June 4: "King of Howard Street"

The Annex Theater closes its season with its first play at Mondo, the first building to open in the new “artist-owned-and-driven initiative to position Baltimore as a center for theatre and the live arts, nationally and internationally” taking over three Howard Street buildings, collectively called Le Mondo. "King Of Howard Street" is written by Annex's Ren Pepitone and adapted from the journals of Anthony Williams, a formerly homeless Baltimorean and advocate for the homeless who has written extensively and eloquently about his life. For those who paid attention to the Fight For $15—ultimately crushed by Mayor Catherine Pugh—you may have seen or heard Williams arguing for the $15 dollar minimum wage; he testified that obtaining a job that paid him that amount was crucial to helping him find a place to live and improve his life. 8 p.m., Mondo, 406 N. Howard St., baltimoreannextheater.org, $15. (Brandon Soderberg)
