by Itai Yasur - May 4, 2015

Remounting a work originally presented at Woolly Mammoth's rehearsal room earlier this year, the Alliance for New Music-Theatre now brings their original adaptation of Metamorphosis to the new Capital Fringe performance venue. The Trinidad Theatre, located at 1358 Florida Ave NE, is exactly the type of small, hip, black box that DC isn't known for, and it's as good of a host as any for Metamorphosis as the Alliance prepares to take their production to the Prague Fringe Festival later this month.

New Hampshire Theatre Project's Senior Youth Repertory Company to Present RHINOCEROS, 5/15-24New Hampshire Theatre Project's Senior Youth Repertory Company to Present RHINOCEROS, 5/15-24
by BWW News Desk - May 11, 2015

Directed by Robin Fowler, Rhinoceros is a play that from its inception has challenged the status quo. One of the major influences of absurdist theatre, Ionesco's play still resonates with its themes of blind conformity, totalitarianism, Metamorphosis, love, despair, and death. The illogical comedy of Rhinoceros hits on many touchstones of the human experience, feeling both familiar and incredibly alien at the same time. (more...)

BWW Reviews:  A Mesmerizing, Memorable TRAP At Ambassador TheaterBWW Reviews: A Mesmerizing, Memorable TRAP At Ambassador Theater
by Andrew White - Jun 8, 2015

Ambassador Theater, with their production of Polish poet Tadeusz Rózewicz's masterpiece The Trap, introduces Washington audiences to a theatrical genius of Samuel Beckett's stature. The Trap traces key elements in Franz Kafka's life, and Rózewicz's masterstroke is to weave the much darker future-the rise of Nazism, the death of Kafka's sisters' in the Holocaust, and the long Soviet occupation-with the troubled 'present' of Kafka's time.

BWW Reviews: Singer WENDY A. RUSSELL Reflects On Her Life With Solid Debut Show at Don't Tell MamaBWW Reviews: Singer WENDY A. RUSSELL Reflects On Her Life With Solid Debut Show at Don't Tell Mama
by Billie Roe - Jun 28, 2015

From the moment she steps on stage and sings the entire first verse of Gloria Estefan's “Coming Out of the Dark”–-in the dark--you get the impression this is not going to be one of those usual personal journey “I've-been-everywhere-and-done-everything” kind of acts. In her debut show, Where Have I Been All My Life (June 18 and 27 at Don't Tell Mama), Wendy A. Russell vividly presents the personal Metamorphosis of a post-modern woman. Quoting Woody Allen's “90% of life is just showing up,” Russell states she showed up 100% of the time and still found life lacking, which is understandable considering she was raised with the “good girl” mentality of the 1960s “Mad Men” era.

KAFKA'S QUEST to Run 2/26-3/15 at Theater for the New CityKAFKA'S QUEST to Run 2/26-3/15 at Theater for the New City
by BWW News Desk - Jan 26, 2015

'Kafka's Quest, a.k.a. Kafka/Samsa' is a quasi-realistic play by the late playwright Lu Hauser that imagines the family life of Gregor Samsa, the tragic victim of Kafka's 'Metamorphosis,' and his friendship with an historic Yiddish Theater actor and actress in Prague, prior to the events of the famed novella. Set in Prague in 1912, it portrays Gregor Samsa (the name Kafka personified himself with in the book) as torn between his father, who wants to keep him on the straight and narrow with a full time job, and his friendship with artists of the Yiddish Theater, who want him to join and write for them. His father's bankruptcy forces Gregor to become the breadwinner of the family, which has been forced to take in two mysterious lodgers to make ends meet. The back and forth between the two poles of Gregor's life will culminate in 'The Metamorphosis.' Theater for the New City will present the play's world premiere February 26 to March 15, directed by Manfred Bormann. (more...)

by David Fick - Jan 22, 2015

The premiere of SAMSA-MASJIEN in the Baxter Theatre's Flipside venue last week was my second experience of the play. I previously saw the piece at the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees (KKNK) last year, where it was staged in a hangar on the grounds of the South African National Defence Force, a seemingly infinite space that suited the operatic scope of the production a little better than the relatively more intimate (though still fairly sized) alternative theatre venue at the Baxter Theatre. Nonetheless, SAMSA-MASJIEN remains an intense rendering of and meditation on aging, the nature of dementia, family and compassion. (more...)

As staged in the six-time Tony Award-winning show, the moment is at once tremendously uncomfortable and remarkably eye-opening, making the audience squirm in their seats due to the unease and the sense of voyeuristic embarrassment they feel, as if they have come upon such a scene happening in their real lives instead of seeing it play out onstage.

New Hampshire Theatre Project's Youth Repertory Company will present Eugene Ionesco's absurdist classic, Rhinoceros, on May 15-24. One day, the residents of a small provincial French town begin to experience unsettling brushes with a rampaging rhinoceros. While others find these attacks shocking and problematic, the simplistic, kind-hearted protagonist Berenger is seemingly disinterested. Events begin to take a strange turn as Berenger's friends, co-workers, and his romantic interest become tangled in this web of "rhinocerotic" intrigue and he is forced to choose sides. (more...)
