World Premiere Of MONUMENTAL TRAVESTIES Now Playing Through October 8 At Mosaic Theater

Mosaic Theater presents the world premiere of Monumental Travesties, a searing comedy inspired by the Emancipation Memorial in DC's Capitol Hill neighborhood. Written by DC Playwright Psalmayene 24 and directed by Mosaic Theater Artistic Director Reginald L. Douglas.

With sharp humor, hijinks, and a palpable love for DC, the play explores race, memory, and the often privileged act of forgetting. The play also reflects on the history of the Emancipation Memorial, which was the site of protests calling for its removal in 2020.

Show extended through October 8, 2023; Performances Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 3 p.m. Additional performances 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. on September 27 at Atlas Performing Arts Center, 1333 H St NE, Washington, DC 20002

Tickets are $42-$70 and available at www.mosaictheater.org.

Review: DORRANCE DANCE: NUTCRACKER SUITE at Kennedy Center

The New York City based tap ensemble Dorrance Dance roared into Kennedy Center’s Eisenhower Theatre this past weekend with their take on Duke Ellington’s Nutcracker Suite as arranged by Billy Strayhorn. For those of you not familiar with this recording, do yourself a favor and look it up. You have not lived until you have heard “Waltz of the Flowers”, or in this case, “Floreodores” played with a swinging horn section. Trust me on this one
