ClickB@it in Broadway CLICKB@IT
Naked Theatre Company
ClickB@it is a devised, sketch comedy-style show inspired by The Internet, a magical, mythical place where catz rule and trollz drool. ClickB@it examines how internet click bait and viral phenomena shape media, permeate social development, and exacerbate news headline numbness—all delivered with a fun, pop-y, sketch sensibility. With just one click, hilarity ensues in this audience-driven, madcap romp! This world-premiere production was conceived by Rachael Murray and devised by the ensemble. A workshop reading of the piece was first performed at NextStop Theatre Company’s darknights series in 2016, where the show was lauded by one audience member as, “the funniest thing I’ve ever seen.” Another reading was then presented at the Kennedy Center Page-to-Stage Festival later that year, where another audience member called the piece “scary.” Naked Theatre Company will present this zany, tech-inspired satire as a full production (revised since the readings) at Capital Fringe 2017.This production presented as a part of the 2017 Capital Fringe Festival, a program of the Washington, DC non-profit Capital Fringe. Tuesday, July 11th, 7:00pm Wednesday, July 12th, 7:45pm Saturday, July 15th, 11:00am Wednesday, July 19th, 5:00pm Saturday, July 22th, 6:15pm

The Originalist in Broadway THE ORIGINALIST
Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater
Four-time Helen Hayes Award winner Edward Gero is Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia in The Originalist. This smash-hit show from 2015 returns to offer audiences another opportunity to see Gero’s “lively performance [that] lands the laughs, delivers the gravitas and at every turn makes you believe this tantalizing man,” (Washington Post) in this special limited engagement. When a bright, liberal, Harvard Law School graduate embarks on a nerve-wracking clerkship with Justice Scalia, she discovers him to be both an infuriating sparring partner and an unexpected mentor. How will their relationship affect one of the most incendiary cases ever to reach the nation’s highest court? Don’t miss your opportunity to experience the show afresh, as the late Justice Scalia’s seat is filled on the Supreme Court and interest in the Court is at an all-time high.
