American Moor  
Anacostia Playhouse American Moor
 
Written and performed by Keith Hamilton Cobb -- an actor most recognizable for his considerable TV work, including The Young and the Restless, Andromeda and All My Children -- this one-man show uses Shakespeare's character of Othello to examine the experience and perspective of black men in America. A classic character whose every fiber is ripe for interpretation, Othello represents both a strong, courageous warrior and a jealous, manipulated and passionate man -- metaphors Cobb cleverly explores to articulate the modern black man's life. At its core, American Moor is focused on racial issues, but this Anacostia Playhouse production is also about American theatre, the power and importance of art, and the nature of pure love. Often funny, but just as often tragic, Cobb's powerful solo show aims to inspire thoughtful conversation on the harmful effects that privileged perspective has on us all.

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.

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.

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.

As the action shifts between the audition and the play within the play, the two engage in a kinky game of cat and mouse. Among the most acclaimed -- and most provocative -- new plays in recent Broadway history, Venus in Fur brilliantly blurs the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, love and sex. Now the Silver Spring Stage heats up with the comedy that The New York Times called "good, kinky fun."

Whose Wives Are They Anyway?  
Bowie Playhouse Whose Wives Are They Anyway?
 
Farces are traditionally French fare -- but playwright Michael Parker has taken the continental comedy and 'Mercanized it. And that means, in true red-white-and-blue fashion (our red, white and blue, that is, and not the French tricolor), Parker has supersized everything: more door slamming, more cross-dressing and more high jinks. Most important, Whose Wives Are They Anyway? offers way more laughs. When two business buddies go off on a golf weekend sans their wives, things get sticky quick when they unexpectedly meet their new boss. Things get stickier still when she blithely mentions that "no one who went golfing for a weekend without his wife would ever work for me." So the guys must produce partners pronto, and (naturally) their solutions are harebrained ... and totally hilarious. Now Bowie Community Theatre presents Whose Wives Are They Anyway? at Bowie Playhouse.
