Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike  
Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
 
Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play (and the Outer Critics Circle and the Drama League and the Drama Desk), Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is a “sunny new play about gloomy people” (New York Times). Siblings Vanya and Sonia live out their days in an endless, bleak tableau in Bucks County, PA. All seems numbingly mundane until in sweeps hurricane Masha, their fading movie star sister, with her shiny new boy toy and a big announcement. Satirizing characters and themes from Chekhov’s classics, Christopher Durang’s latest madcap masterpiece serves up family drama with comic savagery and poses the question: if you could choose your family, would you necessarily choose your family?

Man of La Mancha  
Shakespeare Theatre Company at Sidney Harman Hall Man of La Mancha
 
Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Man of La Mancha retells the timeless tale of Miguel Cervantes' Don Quixote as a play within a play. Cervantes re-enacts his story of the mad knight, a dying old man who lives in a world of his imagination as he awaits his hearing in the Spanish Inquisition. The show features a treasure trove of some of the greatest songs to come out of Broadway, including "Dulcinea," "I'm Only Thinking of Him," "I Really Like Him" and the anthemic "The Impossible Dream."

Lights Rise On Grace  
Woolly Mammoth Theatre Lights Rise On Grace
 
In an inner-city high school, the daughter of Chinese immigrants falls for the son of a combative African-American family. But when he’s suddenly swallowed up by the system, their desires go in desperate new directions. Re-united six years later, can the lovers build a life together now that their innocence is gone? Lights Rise on Grace—named Outstanding Play for its workshop at the New York Fringe—is a hot-blooded stage event that has been exposed to its theatrical bones: an examination of race, sexuality, and family as unconventional as the relationships it depicts.
