Darius and Twig Opens Oct 30  
The Kennedy Center Darius and Twig
"Teenager" is a language so difficult that only a few adults know how to speak it -- and even then their accent is terrible. But author Walter Dean Myer was flawlessly fluent his entire life. His novels -- among them Monster, Fallen Angels and Bad Boy -- inspired fierce devotion among young adult readers who discovered characters that sound (and feel and look) like them. Now one of Myer's last masterworks, Darius & Twig, comes to the stage in a world premiere production at the Kennedy Center. Experience the travails of these two teenage best friends -- one a writer, the other an athlete -- who use their unique gifts to rise about inner-city struggles. Eleanor Holdridge directs an adaptation that showcases Myer's "unerring eye for what's real and meaningful in life."
Akeelah and the Bee Opens Nov 13  
Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater Akeelah and the Bee
Based on Doug Atchison's 2006 inspirational family film, the heartwarming drama tells the story of Akeelah, a determined young girl who overcomes numerous challenges to compete at the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Leading the cast as Akeelah is Johannah Easley, who made a splash originating the role in Minneapolis, where her performance was hailed as "delightful and thoroughly engaging" (City Pages) and possessing "effortless naturalism and poetic economy" (Star Tribune). She stars opposite Broadway veteran James A. Williams (originated the role of Roosevelt Hicks in August Wilson's Radio Golf), who continues in his role as her exacting coach Dr. Larabee.
