Thursday: The Mother Load

May 5

Moms in general are pretty cool, from moms who do the capital Mom thing and go to soccer games and stay at home  and wear "mom jeans" (which now seems like an obsolete term used only by whiny dudes because I know more childless women, like myself, who wear old high-waisted denim than women with children, but whatever) to moms who run businesses, lead biker gangs, or have more snakes than children. You go, moms; thumbs up to all of you. In anticipation of Mothers' Day, the artists at Black Cherry Puppet Theater will have all their thumbs up inside the holes of handmade characters (or pulling their strings) to pay tribute to all the moms in a show hosted by none other than Mother Goose herself. The evening will includes music and a "nonstop stream" of motherhood-centric storytellers, touching on some unusual aspects of child-bearing, child-rearing, and probably child-fearing. 8 p.m., Black Cherry Puppet Theater, 1115 Hollins St., (410) 752-7272,, $10.
