Hedwig and the Angry Inch, by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask, takes audiences on a journey. It's a journey of love, loss, betrayal, and acceptance. There is no such thing as the fourth wall in this show-this rock musical's audience is also the audience for the band Hedwig and the Angry Inch. As Hedwig performs she shares her story through word and song. After having the opportunity to hear from Chad-Alan Carr and Lindsay Bretz-Morgan about their experience performing Hedwig and the Angry Inch at HMAC, I had the chance to actually experience it for myself. And what an experience it is.

God of Carnage sounds like it could be the next Quentin Tarantino film. While there is a lack of actual physical carnage, Yasmina Reza's satire peels back the layers of forced civility, conventions of politeness, and good intentions. Underneath these layers God of Carnage illuminates humanity's constant struggle against baser instincts. This 2009 Tony Award winning play was described by the New York Times as 'a study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct.'

Three isolated people deal with loneliness and its companion, despair, in the intensely felt and deeply moving 'Swallow', now performing at Theater Schmeater. This all takes place in an undefined city setting, preventing any familiarity from the start. Sam (played by Jasmine Joshua) is male-presenting, assigned female at birth, who not-so-gracefully hits on the ex-husband of their friend, Rebecca (played by Mahira Zook). Rebecca's husband cheated on her, and she self-soothes with alcohol. She's also recently had an accident, rendering her face conspicuously scarred, causing extra anguish to the already superficial Rebecca. Anna (played by Jasper Katie Driscol) lives in the apartment above Rebecca, and she's a bit unhinged. She spends all of her time on bizarre, unsanitary 'projects,' and she refuses to leave her apartment. After an evening where Rebecca finds herself intoxicated and hiding from her ex-husband, she scratches at Anna's door for help, and the two strike up an unlikely acquaintance speaking exclusively through Anna's mail slot.

Ben's character may be a phony pastiche, and Elaine's a confusing cypher, but in Elaine's mother Mrs. Robinson, novelist Charles Webb struck gold. Bored, lecherous, alcoholic, deeply dishonest, vengeful, and possessed of a twisted motherly loyalty, she is real and vital and scary as hell. Dyana Neal's Mrs. Robinson is pretty much perfect. She has the intimidating stare, the commanding manner, the resolute lack of curiosity about any aspect of the world aside from sex, tobacco, and alcohol, the maternal protectiveness, all down pat. If Anne Bancroft is looking down from heaven, she probably approves.

Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton tells the story of finding a way to fight for what you believe in within a world of chaos. While Hamilton is ready to fight from the beginning he is young, scrappy, and hungry , after all Aaron Burr spends most of the musical waiting for the moment when he feels ready to act, and (spoiler alert) this waiting ultimately damns him.
