Starting Friday: "The Secret Garden"

Oct. 30-Nov. 29

Growing up, I was sort of obsessed with "The Secret Garden." I had two copies of the book, as well as a "Secret Garden"-themed nature journal that someone bought me as a gift. Now, as an adult, I can appreciate the themes of the transformative power of nature and the way human connections and love can help us become better people, but when I was little I was mostly just in love with the idea of being an orphan in a giant old manor with a secret bit of magic that was all my own. Adults and kids alike can enjoy the Tony Award-winning musical adaptation of the 1911 novel at Center Stage and dream of their own lush oasis. Center Stage, 700 N. Calvert St., (410) 332-0033,, $19-$59. (Anna Walsh)
