Outrage swept through a primarily Jewish neighborhood in Baltimore County after Swastikas were found spray-painted on a mailbox, reports WBAL. 

The hate symbols, accompanied by the word "Cox", which many believe to be referencing republican Maryland Governor candidate Dan Cox, were seen along Greenspring Avenue in the Stevenson area, the outlet continued.


Police are reportedly investigating several claims of vandalism in the area. 

Delegate Cox also released a statement condemning the acts of vandalism, stating that "such bigotry and criminal activity is evil and must be exposed and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law".

Bay Area arts: 9 great shows to see this weekend

There’s a lot to see and do in the Bay Area this weekend and beyond, here’s a partial rundown.

Rock out with the Renegades

Originating with the idea that local symphonies are full of outstanding players who never get their moment to shine, the Renegade Orchestra is an unconventional musical body that takes classical musicians on a more rebellious path toward rock ‘n’ roll, with a setlist that embraces the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Nina Simone, Miles Davis, Metallica and Donna Summer.

As the orchestra describes it: “What Bach would have written if he had a rhythm section.”

“We don’t do any overly lush, cheesy arrangements,” says conductor Jason Eckl of the roughly 20-member musical outfit. “Imagine the skill of these amazing string players turned loose on everyone’s favorite rock songs.”

You can find out for yourself when the Renegade Orchestra performs Friday at Brooklyn Basin in Oakland. It will mark one of the final performances at the popular outdoor performance venue, which is set to close Aug. 31.

Details: 7 p.m. Aug. 19; 288 9th Ave., Oakland; $20;

Red-state makeover

When was the last time you heard words like “edgy” and “new-look” attached to “Oklahoma” – the legendary 1943 Rodgers and Hammerstein Broadway show that people who don’t like musicals point to when they want to explain how they don’t like musicals. But that was yesterday’s “Oklahoma” – before director Daniel Fish unleashed his version on an unsuspecting theater world. Almost more of a revolution than a mere revival, this take on the show features a stripped-down stage, new choreography, an on-stage band instead of a full orchestra  and a somewhat more ambiguous storyline surrounding the classic love triangle at the heart of the show.

What hasn’t changed, though, is the classic score for the musical, highlighted by such gems as “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin,’” “The Surrey With the Fringe on Top,” “Kansas City,” “People Will Say We’re in Love,” and many more. It’s this new take on “Oklahoma ” that opened this week at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Theatre, presented by BroadwaySF.

Details: Through Sept. 11; Taylor and Market streets; $56-$256 (subject to change);

“Iolanthe”: There will be laughter — and great music – when the Lamplighters Music Theatre returns to Livermore with “Iolanthe,” Gilbert and Sullivan’s fizzy musical comedy, in which residents of a fairy land take on members of a stodgy, dim-witted Parliament.

Details: 2 p.m. Aug. 21; Bankhead Theater, Livermore; $31-$78;

”The Golden Crane,” by Kathy Fujii-Oka, is part of a new exhibit focusing on World War II Japanese incarceration camps .(Courtesy of Kathy Fujii-Oka)  Art of remembrance

Eighty years ago, the Tanforan Racetrack in San Bruno was converted into a temporary “Assembly Center” that eventually held some 8,000 Japanese Americans being rounded up and sent to internment camps during World War II.

Today, on the same grounds, you can visit an art exhibit devoted to that dark chapter of U.S. history.

“Sansei Granddaughters’ Journey, From Remembrance to Resistance,” features the works of five third-generation Japanese American artists dedicated to preserving the legacy of Executive Order 9066, under which President Franklin D. Roosevelt authorized the incarceration of some 120,000 Japanese Americans, most of whom were U.S. citizens.

The exhibit, consisting of videos, sculptures and installations, prints, paintings and mixed-media pieces, features the works of Shari Arai DeBoer, Ellen Bepp, Reiko Fujii, Kathy Fujii-Oka, and Na Omi Judy Shintani. It’s on display at AZ Gallery in The Shops at Tanforan, the site of the original race track.

“The injustice of our government incarcerating innocent men, women, and children based on greed, fear, and racial prejudice, resulting in the loss of life, homes, businesses, trust, and self-esteem, is deplorable,” said Reiko Fujii, a Bay Area glass works and installations artist who is one of the participants in the exhibit. “I am adamant about chronicling their stories so that they are a recorded part of American history and that these people’s experiences are not forgotten.”

Artist-led tours of the exhibit are available 3:30-4 p.m. Sunday and 1-1:30 p.m. Sept. 3.

Details: Exhibit runs through Sept. 3; AZ Gallery is at 1150 El Camino Real, Suite 254, San Bruno; hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays; 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays; 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sundays; admission is free; for information visit, or contact 650-483-6066 or ​[email protected]

Hershey’s sweet return

We suspect Bay Area fans need their Hershey Felder fix. And we also suspect he is happy to oblige. The multi-talented musician, actor and storyteller who’s won a legion of fans in the Bay Area with his stage shows focusing on famed conductors, returns to the Bay Area this week for the first time since the pandemic started shutting down stage shows two years ago. He’ll be at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts to present the regional premiere of “Hershey Felder: Chopin in Paris.”

The show, directed by Joel Zwick (“My Big Fat Greek Wedding”) finds Felder portraying the great composer Fryderyk Chopin giving a private piano lesson in Paris days after the 1848 revolution, during which he reveals aspects of his life and his music. And, as is the case with all Felder productions, part of the thrill is watching the entertainer perform portions of Chopin’s compositions.

The show, something of a sequel/revision of an earlier work, “Hershey Felder as Monsieur Chopin,” plays in preview Friday and opens Saturday, presented by TheatreWorks Silicon Valley. And if you’re wondering what Felder was up to during the pandemic, he was busy creating film versions of his productions and other works. You can check out his many projects at

Details: Through Sept. 11; $25-$103;

Rudner’s voice of reason

With her soft, deliberate and flawless diction, Rita Rudner sounds like she should be talking about tonight’s lineup on PBS or which color scheme you should employ in your home office space. Instead, she has made a living cooly mocking the institutions we hold most dear – love, marriage, family – and comparing single men to “bears with furniture.” Rudner’s comedy is so sharp and deftly executed that it’s easy to forget that her earliest aspirations were to be a professional dancer or a star of Broadway musicals. But when the comedy explosion of the late 1970s and early ‘80s started to detonate, Rudner noticed that the gender ratio of stars heavily tilted toward the men. So she tried her hand at standup and found she had a real knack for the trade. Thanks to regular appearances on “The Tonight Show” and “Late Night With David Letterman,” Rudner’s comedy act became an American staple. And unlike many of her contemporaries, she has pretty much stuck with it, rather than pursuing a plethora of film and sitcom roles. Since 2001, however, she has been largely based in Las Vegas, where her show has emerged one of the city’s longest-running and most lucrative comedy acts.

She makes a rare break from Sin City on Saturday to perform a set at the Bankhead Theater in Livermore.

Details: 8 p.m.; $20-$80;

Mad about Mads: It would be enough to say the Bay Area’s Mads Tolling is simply a supremely talented violinist if that’s all he was. But part of his musical DNA is an amazing versatility and wide-ranging sense of exploration that draws him in myriad directions. He has been a member of all-world-bassist Stanely Clarke’s band as well as the famed jazz/classical/Americana hybrid band Turtle Island Quartet, and collaborated with artists ranging from Chick Corea to Leo Kotke to the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir. He’s also fronted such bands as Mads Tolling and the Mads Men.

But this weekend, he takes the stage as a solo act and gets to exhibit his musicianship as well as his mastery of 21st-century technology. Armed with an array of “looping” devices, which allow him to create harmonies and multi-part songs live on stage, Tolling will perform at Aug. 21 in Richmond in a concert that will also be livestreamed on the Tunedera music site. As to what he will play, he’s only got about a zillion works in his repertoire to choose from, ranging from Coltrane to bluegrass to Radiohead and Led Zeppelin.

Details: 5 p.m.; 5221 Central Ave., Richmond; live show, $30, livestream, $10;
