Pointless Theatre's production of Don Cristobal is an inventive send-up to Punch and Judy shows that is unfortunately bogged down by a clunky script which spends too much time trying to set up profundities it doesn't successfully execute. (more...)

Don Cristobal is the worst hombre! His puppet show comes to the nation's capital for one final, offensively illuminating performance. Experience the Punch and Judy tradition through the whimsically distorted lens of Pointless puppetry and an original, multilingual story! (more...)

Studio Theatre's VIETGONE is a Refugee Romance and Madcap Road Trip With Comic Book SensibilitiesStudio Theatre's VIETGONE is a Refugee Romance and Madcap Road Trip With Comic Book Sensibilities
by BWW News Desk - Apr 9, 2018

Vietgone by Qui Nguyen is the Vietnamese-American playwright's own creation story-a telling of his parents' 1975 refugee camp romance in a "geek theater" spectacle that's at turns affecting, sage, raucous, and fantastical. A screenwriter for Marvel Studios and founder of Obie Award-winning company Vampire Cowboys, Nguyen's work champions representation and diversity on stage while dripping with pop culture nods, contemporary music, and action-adventure narrative. The production pairs this Studio-commissioned playwright with director and Studio Cabinet member Natsu Onoda Power. Drawing on Vietgone's comic book aesthetics, Studio's Stage 4 is transformed into a garage concert with a live band and original funk-rock-punk-n-roll score, giving audiences a front row seat to this anything-but-typical story of boy meets girl.

BWW Review: Mosaic Theater Company's PAPER DOLLS Creates a Beautiful Piece Despite Some CreasesBWW Review: Mosaic Theater Company's PAPER DOLLS Creates a Beautiful Piece Despite Some Creases
by Sam Abney - Apr 4, 2018

If you've ever thought what it would be like to cross an episode of Ru Paul's Drag Race with a searing Middle East drama and set the action to pop hits of the early aughts, Paper Dolls the perfect show for you. Mosaic Theater Company's newest entry to their Voices from a Changing Middle East cycle is a delightful piece of sheer entertainment. The show unfortunately tries to cover too many topics, however, and is thus unable to reach the dramatic heights some of its subject matter calls for. (more...)

by Pamela Roberts - Jan 16, 2018

THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH at Constellation Theatre is a thought-provoking, skillfully-rendered reminder that chaos and uncertainty are not unique to our time or to any single time. In the sure directorial hands of Mary Hall Surface, Thornton Wilder's masterpiece is a wild time-traveling, allegorical tragicomedy, without the Pepperidge Farm and Hallmark overtones we've now come to associate with the OUR TOWN playwright.

Sometimes playwrights don't know when to quit and there's a situation where an incidental plot point becomes a major one because it's unnecessarily brought to the forefront again and again. Miriam Gonzales' The Smartest Girl in the World suffers from this problem and it's too bad because otherwise there is plenty to like in Imagination Stage's season opener. (more...)
