Titanic: The Musical  
Signature Theatre Titanic: The Musical
 
Titanic: The Musical, winner of five Tony Awards, brings the harrowing tale of one of the world's most famous ill-fated voyages to life on stage at Arlington's Signature Theatre. This acclaimed musical examines the lives of the passengers aboard the doomed luxury liner -- taking you from first class to second class to steerage down below. It's a sweeping story that captures the look and feel of the nights leading up to the ship's fatal encounter with an iceberg at sea, when a total of 1,517 men, women and children tragically lost their lives. Based on the disaster itself rather than the Hollywood film, this production of Titanic: The Musical is a 360-degree staged spectacular that features music and lyrics by Maury Yeston and a crew of more than 50 artists.

Charm  
Atlas Performing Arts Center Charm
 
Charm offers a peek into the colorful inner-workings of an etiquette class taught by Mama Darleena Andrews, an African-American transgender woman working at an LGBTQ organization known as The Center. Mama attempts to share her rules of proper behavior with an eclectic youth group that counts a Latina transwoman, a cisgendered straight black couple and a gay suburban teen among its ranks. Though her students initially struggle to see how etiquette relates to their daily battles with identity, poverty and prejudice, Mama's powerful love and unapologetic attitude eventually win them over. Inspired by a true story, Charm carries a message of peace and dignity, as Mama and her students must ultimately find a new way to respect each other and redefine what "having charm" means. Now, the Atlas Performing Arts Center brings Philip Dawkins' fresh-faced take on sexuality, race and gender identity to Washington, DC.
