Ever wonder how Fells Point Corner Theatre got its name, since it is not technically in Fells Point (it's in Upper Fells Point) and it is not on a corner?
Fells Point Theatre and the Corner Theater were both active in the Baltimore area in the seventies and eighties. Fells Point Theatre concentrated on presenting exciting new plays recently produced in New York; Corner Theater devoted its attention to the local playwrights, providing readings, workshops and full productions of new plays. When both theaters lost their homes, they joined forces under the leadership of Bev Sokal of Fells Point Theater and Bruce Godfrey of Corner Theater. In 1987 the theater opened with Sam Sheppard’s, Fool for Love.
