The Metromaniacs  
Lansburgh Theatre The Metromaniacs
 
Mistaken identity, misplaced ardor and a fight for true love ensues in David Ives’ adaptation of Piron’s classic 1738 French farce.

Continuing the successful partnership between Artistic Director Michael Kahn and David Ives, STC presents the third play in Ives’ series of rediscovered French comedy masterpieces, following The Heir Apparent (2011) and The Liar (2010).

Much Ado About Nothing  
Synetic Theater Much Ado About Nothing
 
The genius of Shakespeare comes across loud and clear -- without a single spoken line -- in a new wordless production of Much Ado About Nothing. Equally obvious is the talent and vigor of the production's staging company, Synetic Theater, which first arrived on the scene with the widely praised wordless Hamlet (Hamlet ... the rest is silence) in 2002. Now the company once again tells one of Shakespeare's finest tales completely through movement, setting their version of Much Ado amid the glitz and glamour of 1950s Las Vegas. Confirmed bachelor Benedick and the unwed Beatrice will spar, court and conspire in this lively interpretation directed by Synetic's founding artistic director Paata Tsikurishvili.

The Arsonists  
Maryland Ensemble Theatre (MET) The Arsonists
 
Mild-mannered Mr. Biederman, a respected member of the community, tries to live a blameless life, refusing to acknowledge evil of any kind. The facade comes crashing down around him, though, when he allows two smooth-talking guests to move in -- and they start filling his attic with petrol drums. Popular British comedy writer Alistair Beaton's The Arsonists at Maryland Ensemble Theatre is part moral fable and part black farce. It's an elegant, witty translation of Max Frisch's 1958 absurdist comedy The Firebugs, which was inspired by the Communist takeover of Czechoslovakia in 1948 and satirizes the way in which people can be manipulated into accommodating their own destruction.

The Flying Dutchman  
The Kennedy Center The Flying Dutchman
 
Misfortune, greed and fidelity collide in this storm-battered tale of one man's quest for lifesaving love. This Washington National Opera revival comes to the stage of The Kennedy Center Opera House to retell the nautical legend of the fearsome Flying Dutchman, cursed to sail the seas until he finds a woman who will love him until death.

It's also a must-see for aficionados, as this production features formidable bass-baritone and two-time Grammy winner Eric Owens making his staged role debut as the show's condemned captain. Director Stephen Lawless brings this thrilling tale to the stage with striking imagery, telling the story "with clarity and theatrical flair while adding a few powerful images along the way" (New York Magazine).

Tartuffe  
Sidney Harman Hall Tartuffe
 
Few scoundrels are as roguish, charming or hilarious as Tartuffe, an impostor who insinuates himself into the home of Orgon and his family, quickly throwing the entire household into chaos. As Orgon's infatuation with his guest and his phony piety grows, Tartuffe's deception threatens to turn downright destructive in this beloved comic masterpiece. Banned in Paris in 1664, Tartuffe is one of Moliere's best loved -- and most clever -- comedies. This production stars Steven Epp, recent winner of a Helen Hayes Award for his work in The Servant of Two Masters.

What I Heard About the World  
The Kennedy Center What I Heard About the World
 
Two theater companies -- Portugal's Mala Voadora and the UK's Third Angel -- have combined forces to deliver their United States debut with What I Heard About the World. A series of comedic, thought-provoking and entertaining vignettes (with themes covering everything from renting strangers to cry at your own funeral to places where cures for loneliness can be bought on CD), this show is kept up-to-the-minute in its topicality by finalizing its text only days before the performance. This amusing examination of the world today comes to the stage of The Kennedy Center as part of the IBERIAN SUITE: global arts remix festival.

The Whole Truth: And Nothing But Opera Improv  
Atlas Performing Arts Center The Whole Truth: And Nothing But Opera Improv
 
Chances are when you hear the word "opera," you think of large women in Viking helmets -- unless you've seen an UrbanArias show, that is. Bringing opera into the 21st century, the company returns to the Intersections festival after last year's sold-out performances with the new show The Whole Truth. Based on a comedic short story by Stephen McCauley (The Object of My Affection), the show tells the story of a woman who confesses an affair to her psychiatrist, but cleans up the details so as not to seem too sordid. Then, UrbanArias ups the laughs even more with an improv opera. Using audience suggestions, a troupe of five singer-improvisers will come up with an opera that'll make Wagner roll in his grave. Chock-full of laughs and with only a 60-minute running time, The Whole Truth is the perfect way to discover modern opera. Catch it at Washington, D.C.'s Atlas Performing Arts Center.
