Alice in Wonderland

Avenue Q  
Source Avenue Q
 
Imagine an R-rated Sesame Street for Millenials: puppets with filthy mouths and online porn habits sing songs like "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist," "I Wish I Could Go Back to College" and "What Do You Do With a B.A. in English?" Hilarious and irreverent, Avenue Q is a coming-of-age parable that satirizes the anxieties of entering the "real world." Winner of the Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q suggests that while being a grown-up isn't as simple as we'd hoped, its ups and downs make it all more colorful and exciting. Catch this Broadway smash when Constellation Theatre Company brings it to Washington, D.C.'s Source.

Cake Off  
Signature Theatre Cake Off
 
Arlington's Signature Theatre raises its curtain on the world premiere musical adaptation of Sheri Wilner's riotous "battle-of-the-baking-sexes" play. It's the 48th Annual Millberry Bake-Off and contestants are eagerly vying for the legendary jackpot: one million dollars for the best homemade sugary delight. After a chilly pre-heating, hardy contestants Paul and Rita don their aprons, strap on their oven mitts and square off. Armed with whisks, bowls, knives and eggs, the two engage in an increasingly ludicrous all-out brawl -- and only one can remain standing when the timer dings. Ferociously funny, there's nothing sweet about this wild musical satire, presented as part of the Women's Voices Theater Festival.

Calming the Man  
The Kennedy Center Calming the Man
 
Anger, goes the bumpersticker, is one letter short of danger. And Calming the Man is a play about anger -- how it animates, how it deadens, how it cripples forever. Thus, this new work from Anthony Lamarr never, not for a second, feels safe; explosions always seem imminent, the air is thick with unspoken threats. Daddyo has lived his entire life bleeding on the inside, cut deep by racism and unrequited love. His dreams crushed, his adult sons are his life now. Michael is his reason for living ... while he blames Tracey for inflicting his deepest wound. S. Robert Morgan directs this workshop reading as a part of the Kennedy Center's prestigious Annual Page-to-Stage Festival.

The Importance of Being Earnest  
Atlas Performing Arts Center The Importance of Being Earnest
 
bachelors each attempt to come across as very earnest -- while masquerading as guys named Ernest -- as they set out to win their well-dowried ladies' hearts.

Oscar Wilde's enduring 1895 satire is a comically sly romp through Victorian society, filled with one-liners and double entendres that continue to pack a mighty punch to this day. Revived numerous times on Broadway -- most recently in 2011 -- The Importance of Being Earnest was also adapted into a 2002 film starring Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth. Go Wilde with this Scena production at the Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington, DC.
