BWW Review: THE INFINITE TALES at 4615 Theatre Company

There's a lot of energy and creativity onstage during 4615 Theatre Company's world premiere of The Infinite Tales -- and they come not only from the actors. The performers are accompanied by live and recorded music, props that take up a good part of the stage (mostly suitcases and trunks, suggesting the long-distance travel the main characters must undergo), shadow puppets and screens, and paper cut-outs, among others.
Prologue Theatre Begins Their Second Season With DOG SEES GOD

Where do we look to find ourselves? The three plays in Prologue Theatre's second season explore this question beginning with Bert V. Royal's DOG SEES GOD: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead.

BWW Review: VENUS IN FUR at 4615 Theatre Company

'Venus in Fur' is a vivid and wonderful production that taps into themes of gender norms, sexuality, and power, and features a fantastic cast. It's certainly an experience you'll want to indulge in. Seating is extremely limited, but that's part of the charm.
Literary Lovers, or Just Canny Operators?: SEX WITH STRANGERS at FPCT Makes You Decide

The play will certainly keep challenging you the way a puzzle does. It begins, no doubt portentously, with a question that it never completely answers (Olivia to Ethan 'Who are you?') and it ends with deliberate lack of clarity over whether the characters have any future. In short, this is theater which keeps the audience on its toes, no matter what label you slap on it.
BWW Review: Gender SWITCH from The Welders at Fringe Logan Arts Space

Talk about 'Freaky Friday.' Brett Abelman's new play 'Switch,' at Fringe Logan Arts Space, is more like 'Freaky Pride Weekend.' A straight D.C. couple matched up by their mutual genderqueer friend find themselves in the afterglow of intimacy having switched bodies and hence gender. The balance of the play is exploring the abrupt switch amid Pride Weekend and trying to figure out how or whether they should try to switch back.

Cohesion Theatre Company Presents Two Plays In Repertory: LA LLORONA By Cecelia Raker & THE ORPHAN SEA By Caridad Svich

Cohesion Theatre Company is proud to announce the third production of their 2017/2018 season and their first ever repertory production. Continuing to explore the season theme of 'E Pluribus Unum,' the shows in repertory will utilize the same diverse cast to tell two seemingly very different stories, La Llorona by Cecelia Raker and The Orphan Sea by Caridad Svich. Despite the plays' notable differences, it is the hope of Cohesion that these stories in conversation with one another will inspire discussion and thought long after leaving the theater.

Somewhere between the ancient rituals of our pagan ancestors and the tacky office holiday party you attended last night lurks an answer to the question that haunts your dreams: 'How did I get here?'
