Richard II Oct 24 - Nov 9, 2014

17th International Festival of Hispanic Theater - ECUADOR "Loca la Juana/That crazy Joan" Oct 24 - Oct 26, 2014  
Gunston Arts Center 17th International Festival of Hispanic Theater - ECUADOR
 
~~It was always thought - and still is - that there is no greater madness than to talk to oneself. In theater, this madness is called a "monologue." Today we have before us history’s three best-known and/or most famous Joans: Joan of Arc, Joanna the Mad of Castile and Pope Joan. These three important historical figures will be portrayed in a serious and praiseworthy piece of work by our own present-day Joan - "Star Joan" (Juana Estrella) – who with her immense and wild sense of humor will demonstrate for us in true comedic fashion that she’s not Joanna the Mad, but "THAT CRAZY JOAN."
 
   
Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen Oct 24 - Nov 23, 2014  
Quotidian Theatre Company at Writer's Center Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen
 
The magnetic and mysterious Hedda Gabler, stifled by society's coventions, has captivated audiences since she sprang from Ibsen's imagination in 1890.

Macbeth Oct 24 - Nov 23, 2014  
Bowie Playhouse Macbeth
 
Even at a time when charismatic anti-heroes rule supreme -- especially on cable TV -- Macbeth stands apart. More under-handed than Frank Underwood, more cunning than Michael Corleone and more desperate than Walter White, the Scottish general-turned-king remains the most enthralling example of ambition run amok, of authentic talent corrupted one compromise at time. Now the Annapolis Shakespeare Company presents a bold new production of Shakespeare's dark masterpiece. Set in a gloomy world of ghosts and witches, the tragedy's bloody cycle of corruption and betrayal is thrown into motion when the popular King Duncan of Scotland is murdered by Macbeth, his trusted friend. Egged on by his wife, Macbeth goes on to claim his "destiny" ... but at a terrible price.

As You Like It Oct 28 - Dec 7, 2014

"Love is merely a madness" in this romantic comedy featuring thwarted lovers, a clown and women disguised as men. The duke's daughter and her cousin flee a dangerous situation at the royal court and end up in the mysterious Forest of Arden.

Through mischievous misunderstandings, pleasing poetry and hilarious happenstance, As You Like It shows that the forces of romance and justice can make an out-of-kilter world right again.

In the shadow of the nearby Capitol building, Shakespeare’s searing commentary on power, ambition, and democratic responsibility smolders just in time for midterm elections.

The Murder Room Oct 31 - Nov 15, 2014  
Bowie Playhouse The Murder Room
 
If Monty Python were tasked with rewriting an Agatha Christie murder mystery, the results wouldn't be half as funny as The Murder Room, where "murder most foul" becomes "mayhem most farcical." Mavis Templeton Hollister returns to Brynwood Cottage in northern England only to find her husband, Edgar, waiting to greet her ... which is slightly distressing, considering she was 99% sure she had killed him earlier. She quickly "finishes the job" but Edgar's disappearance kick-starts a remarkable zany chain of events. Plodding police inspectors, mysterious hidden compartments, dull-witted relations and noisy servants all make The Murder Room an utterly charming place to be. Now Bowie Playhouse stages a fresh production of this "killer" comedy from prolific playwright Jack Sharkey.

Winner of nine Tony Awards, this celebration of family, community and life's unexpected miracles is filled with unforgettable songs, including "If I Were a Rich Man," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker" and "Sunrise, Sunset."

Prince William Little Theatre at Hylton Performing Arts Center The 39 Steps
 
This ingenious comic stage adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock's thriller The 39 Steps turns a cast of four into over 100 zany characters (in 100 minutes) with a mix of Hitchcockian panache, spy novel thrills and a touch of Monty Python absurdity. The winner of two Tony and Drama Desk Awards, The 39 Steps is a fast-paced and funny whodunit that's brimming with action and romance. Accused of a murder he didn't commit, Richard Hannay flees from the authorities and encounters a string of hair-raising adventures -- as well as an unlikely love connection.

Danny believes their hot summer fling is over ... until Sandy unexpectedly enrolls at Rydell. The hit 1978 movie starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John quickly became a musical phenomenon with catchy sing-along tunes like "Summer Nights," "Beauty School Dropout," "We Go Together" and "Greased Lightning," and this live version remains a perennial favorite. Join Sandy, Danny, Rizzo, Kenickie and the rest of the gang, and discover why Grease is most definitely the word.
