Kinky Boots  
The Kennedy Center Kinky Boots
 
Broadway's high-heeled hit, Kinky Boots, is the winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical. '80s pop icon Cyndi Lauper made history as the first solo woman ever to receive the Tony for Best Score thanks to her contributions to this feel-good sensation. Based on true events, Kinky Boots tells the story of Charlie Price, a man who has reluctantly inherited his father's nearly bankrupt shoe factory. Trying to live up to his father's legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, a fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible ... and Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man he's meant to be. Together they discover that when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world. Featuring direction and Tony-winning choreography by Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray) and a spectacularly uplifting book by four-time Tony winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage aux Folles), this red-hot musical smash has audiences dancing -- and strutting -- in the aisles. Now it's your turn to join the celebration when Kinky Boots heads to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C.

An Octoroon  
Woolly Mammoth Theatre An Octoroon
 
An Octoroon is Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' Obie-winning riff on a 19th century antebellum melodrama. The story focuses on a plantation on the brink of foreclosure, a young gentleman falling for the part-black daughter of the estate's owner and an evil swindler who's plotting to buy the girl for himself. Meanwhile, the slaves are all trying to keep things drama-free as everyone around them goes crazy. While Dion Boucicault's original play helped shape the debate around the abolition of slavery, the New York Post has called this incendiary adaptation "entertainingly demented." Part period satire, part meta-theatrical middle finger, it's a provocative challenge to America's lasting legacy of slavery and the racial pigeonholing of 1859 -- and today. See what The New York Times calls "this decade's most eloquent theatrical statement on race," when An Octoroon comes to D.C.'s Woolly Mammoth Theatre.

Reynolds Tavern The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)
 
Life is short. The complete works of Shakespeare are long. To the rescue: The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) performed by three of Annapolis Shakespeare Company's brightest and funniest.

After warming up with a nothing-is-sacred send-up of Romeo and Juliet, they're off, dispensing with the comedies in one fell swoop (because the tragedies are funnier). You decide after you see Othello as a rap song, Titus Andronicus as a cooking program, and the show's unforgettable finale - Hamlet - told with the help of audience members and lascivious sock puppets.
