What did our critic think? This past weekend Signature Theatre and Wolf Trap teamed up for the second annual edition of Broadway in The Park which like last year featured some of Signature Theatre’s best performers, two Broadway headliners and a 25, yes, 25-piece orchestra. The result was a truly lovely evening of showtunes from multiple decades.

What did our critic think of IN HIS HANDS at Mosaic At Atlas Performing Arts Center? The world première of Benjamin Benne's In His Hands has opened at the Atlas Performing Arts Center while it's still Pride month. But this fine script's universal notions hold true from Jan. to December; the play is short (90 minutes), and it's nice to remember.

by Martrese Meachum on June 27, 2022 in Washington, DC

What did our critic think? Sophisticated New Ones, written by well versed television actor, writer and show creator Keith Powel is not a throw away play.

Review: JOHN WILLIAMS 90TH BIRTHDAY GALA CONCERT at Kennedy Center Photo Review: JOHN WILLIAMS 90TH BIRTHDAY GALA CONCERT at Kennedy Center
by Elliot Lanes on June 27, 2022 in Washington, DC

109 film scores, lots of symphonic music, and the music you hear during the Olympics doesn't even begin to properly describe a true living musical legend like John Williams. His 50 years and 29 film association with Steven Spielberg is the longest relationship in film between a director and a composer.

by David Friscic on June 27, 2022 in Washington, DC

Harper Lee’s classic book To Kill A Mockingbird has a legion of fans and so does the 1962 film but it would be best to forget the source material and simply savor the theatricality of the play To Kill A Mockingbird now playing at the Kennedy Center.  Playwright Aaron Sorkin has written a stage adaptation that succeeds beautifully on its own terms.
