Sweat  
Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater Sweat
 
A group of close friends shares everything: drinks, secrets and laughs. But when rumors of layoffs shake up the local steel mill, the fragile bonds of their community begin to fray and a horrific crime sends shock waves across two generations. This gripping world premiere by acclaimed Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Ruined) explores America’s industrial decline at the turn of the millennium by examining the inhabitants of one Pennsylvania town who still struggle to reclaim what’s lost, find redemption and redefine themselves in a new century. Co-commissioned with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

Jersey Boys  
The National Theatre Jersey Boys
 
"Oh, What a Night" you'll have at this show that takes you behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. The Tony and Grammy Award-winning true-life musical phenomenon Jersey Boys follows the rags-to-rock-to-riches tale of four guys from Jersey who work their way up from the streets of Newark to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, selling 175 million records worldwide before the age of 30. Although Valli and his cohorts Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi are famed for their legendary harmonies, things didn't always go so smoothly between them off stage -- and this story has made them an international sensation all over again. Sing, hum, rock and reminisce to the groundbreaking group's hit songs "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Walk Like a Man," "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" and "December, 1963 (Oh What a Night)" at The National Theatre in Washington, D.C.

The Glass Menagerie  
Ford's Theatre The Glass Menagerie
 
Few theatrical debuts have more loudly trumpeted a writer's genius than The Glass Menagerie, Tennessee Williams' first successful play. Tom Wingfield is a poet struggling with a mind-numbing job and a smothering home life. His overbearing mother, a former Southern belle, constantly pushes her son to bring home "gentleman callers" for his painfully shy sister. When Tom finally produces a male visitor, the guest's presence sends shockwaves through the family -- and the fragile fantasy world they've built is irreparably cracked. Catch this unforgettable American masterpiece, full of poetry and longing, at Ford's Theatre.
