Due to the ongoing surge of COVID-19 cases in the D.C. region, all performances of The Mountaintop are canceled, January 21 through February 13, 2022. Directed by Nicole A. Watson, the production was to feature KenYatta Rogers as Martin Luther King, Jr., and Shannon Dorsey as Camae.

The next scheduled Ford's Theatre production is the world-premiere musical Grace, celebrating African-American food, family and tradition, March 18 through May 14, 2022.

"The highly contagious Omicron variant, along with anticipated staffing shortages related to the status of the pandemic and the notable audience hesitancy for January and February performances have created a perfect storm at this time," said Ford's Theatre Director Paul R. Tetreault. "This is not a decision that was made lightly. We continue to evaluate our programming schedule and prioritize the health of our audience, artists, staff and volunteers. We feel this is the necessary call to make given the ongoing issues that the current health crisis presents."

Those who purchased tickets to The Mountaintop directly through Ford's Theatre should email or call (888) 616-0270 to exchange into an upcoming performance of the new musical Grace (March 18-May 14, 2022) or convert their tickets into a gift certificate for future use. Those unable to exchange may consider donating the ticket value back to the Theatre (fully tax-deductible) or receive a refund. For tickets purchased through any other outlet, please contact the outlet directly.

Through February 2022, Ford's Theatre and museum are open for daytime visitation Wednesday through Monday, closed only on Tuesdays. The Petersen House and Aftermath Exhibits remain closed during our current reopening status. Advance tickets are recommended. Face masks are required for all, regardless of vaccination status. Full details on daytime visitation and current safety measures are available online at

Review: THE CRUCIBLE at Eisenhower Theater

What did our critic think of THE CRUCIBLE at Eisenhower Theater? Choreographer Helen Pickett does in her ballet The Crucible just exactly what Arthur Miller attempted in his 1953 play, her source. Both try to make a new language to express the Salem witch trials of 1692 because those events were too extraordinary for regular English or garden-variety ballet.

Review: SWEENEY TODD at Signature Theatre

What did our critic think of SWEENEY TODD at Signature Theatre? Set in the dark streets of London in 1785, we follow barber Sweeney Todd (Nathaniel Stampley) as he returns from wrongful imprisonment by the horrifying Judge Turpin (John Leslie Wolf).
