Hi, I'm Morgan! I'm a twenty-something theater critic and writer (which really just means I've been a Theater Kid my whole life but now I'm an adult) based somewhere between Baltimore and Washington DC. 

Hopefully, I can help you discover a new show or the next song that will be stuck in your head for weeks on end.

I've been a theater writer since 2016, and I'm so excited to share my passion for the arts with you! Happy reading!

Welcome to Intermission!

News: Maryland Governor Announces $30 Million in Emergency Relief for Music and Entertainment Venues

Maryland governor Larry Hogan announced last week that $30 million in awards will be granted to more than 90 live music and performance venues, live entertainment promoters, and independently-owned local movie theaters around the state whose operations have been impacted by COVID-19. The announcement comes in a press release from the governor's office and is part of a larger economic relief package that grants more that $700 million in emergency funds provided by the State of Maryland.

“These awards will save hundreds of jobs and help many of Maryland’s entertainment venues sustain their operations until they can safely and fully reopen,” said Governor Hogan in the press release. “While safe and effective vaccines will help bring a return to normalcy and end the damage to our economy, we need to continue to do everything we can to support our small business community.”

The press release states that the funds have been granted to "49 for-profit or nonprofit live entertainment venues in 12 counties and Baltimore City, including nightclubs, theaters, and arenas; 27 independently-owned movie theaters in 11 counties and Baltimore City; and 16 live entertainment promoters."
