Whether one was looking for original tunes by the artists and those closest to them, covers of popular country or R&B music, or songs they performed on the television series, the DC stop of the nine-city concert tour offered a little bit of everything.

I could probably write a one sentence review of Audra McDonald's concert at Bethesda's magnificent Music Center at Strathmore that would sum up my reaction quite well. It would read something like this: Audra is perfection and can do anything.

It's likely of little surprise to anyone that follows the workings of the highest court in our nation that any legal battle situation involving conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and an opponent is ripe for theatricalization. Arena Stage's resident playwright John Strand has done just that with his world premiere play, THE ORIGINALIST. However, the play he wrote is not the one we all might expect.

One of the greatest things about the Kennedy Center is its long history of exposing Washington, DC audiences to a healthy selection of international theatre, music, and dance artists. A major facet of this programming is an annual international arts festival, which, this year, is focused on the Iberian Peninsula and, by extension, other countries that have been heavily influenced by Spain and/or Portugal. Particularly exciting is the Washington, DC premiere of Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras' VOCES, SUITE FLAMENCA.

BWW Reviews: Intriguing Yet Muddled ZERO HOUR: TOKYO ROSE'S LAST TAPE Plays Kennedy CenterBWW Reviews: Intriguing Yet Muddled ZERO HOUR: TOKYO ROSE'S LAST TAPE Plays Kennedy Center
February 9, 2015

Celebrated Japanese artist Miwa Yanagi's play, Zero Hour: Tokyo Rose's Last Tape is making the rounds to various American cities (before playing Washington DC's Kennedy Center this past weekend, it played New York). Fundamentally, the North American tour is a great idea because it takes a more or less comparatively lesser known segment of World War II history involving Japanese Americans and presents it to American audiences in an intriguing way. Underpinning the history-based narrative is also the idea of young, impressionable females being pawns for their older male counterparts - an idea which transcends historical, geographical, and sociocultural contexts.

At Round House Theatre, all that is exceedingly good about Gionfriddo's play 'on paper' is leveraged in the best way possible for this production, and made even 'better' by exceptional acting, direction, and production values. I'd even go as far to say that it's one of the best executed productions I've seen in the area in recent years.
