Photo Flash: In Rehearsal with Shakespeare Theatre Co's THE ORESTEIA

On Sunday, April 21, 2019, Shakespeare Theatre Company opened the doors to Sidney Harman Hall to theatregoers to experience Open Rehearsal for The Oresteia, freely adapted by Ellen McLaughlin from Aeschylus' trilogy and directed by Shakespeare Theatre Company's outgoing Artistic Director Michael Kahn.

Michael Kahn was one of the earliest adopters of the Open Rehearsal, now a common practice in theatres worldwide. It's been a mainstay event at STC since Kahn took the helm, and this event for The Oresteia marked the final Open Rehearsal for Kahn, who is retiring after 33 seasons at STC.

The Oresteia opens on April 30 at Sidney Harman Hall (610 F St. NW, Washington, DC 20004). http://www.shakespearetheatre.org/events/oresteia-18-19/

Review: THE RAINMAKER at 1st Stage Photo
American literature has a soft spot for con artists, those ruffians who, lacking the skills or inclination to earn an honest living, prosper by using sheer charm and creativity to tell other people what they most want to hear. These rapscallions, despite living by lying, often find themselves in a position to help other characters discover certain truths about themselves. 1st Stage's production of N. Edward Nash's 1954 play The Rainmaker is an enjoyable and entertaining visit with one such miscreant.
