John Malkovich visits Strathmore, April 26, 2018

From our friends at Strathmore...

Strathmore has announced the last-minute addition of two Music Center performances just in time for the public on-sale of its 2017-18 Season - John Malkovich in the visceral one-man production, Just Call Me God, and the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra’s Mediterranean Images with lauded Cuban classical guitarist Manuel Barrueco under the baton of conductor José-Luis Novo. These performances bring the total number of events in Strathmore’s growing 2017-18 Season to 44. For more information or to purchase tickets, please call (301) 581-5100 or visit

Malkovich’s poignant Just Call Me God joins other main stage theatrical works such as Million Dollar Quartet and A Night with Janis Joplin. The 2017-18 Season also marks the fourth year of a multi-year collaboration between Strathmore and the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, wherein Maryland’s capital city orchestra appears on the Music Center stage with a world-renowned musician, which in the past has included cellist Lynn Harrell and violinist James Ehnes.

Tickets to these shows, and all other performances in Strathmore’s 2017-18 Season, go on sale to the public on Friday, June 9, 2017.

Strathmore’s flexible programming schedule allows it to continually book new artists throughout the year, capitalizing on artist availability and new tours. Additional events in the 2017-18 Season will be announced.

John Malkovich may be best known for appearing in more than 70 films, from Places in the Heart to Con Air to Being John Malkovich, but most recently, he’s garnered rave reviews for sold-out performances in Michael Sturminger’s Just Call Me God at London’s Barbican Centre. The musical drama features Malkovich and music by Bach, Messiaen, and Ligeti; his words as a megalomaniacal dictator countered by the powerful response of music most sublime. It’s a journey exploring tyranny in the raw in “the last speech of a dictator,” where power corrupts absolutely.
