Trayf  
Theater J Trayf
 
The Yiddish word for "non-kosher," Trayf follows the adventures of Zalmy, the loyal follower of a New York rebbe, whose decidedly unorthodox lifestyle involves driving a a tricked-out "Mitzvah Tank" by day, and then sneaking away from his ultra-religious community at night to raise a little hazarai -- roller skating and rocking out in clubs.

Botticelli in the Fire  
Woolly Mammoth Theatre Botticelli in the Fire
 
This ambitious ancient-modern mashup shows the spark of the culture war between Italian Renaissance artist and smoldering sensualist Sandro Botticelli, who's in the midst of painting his famed Venus on a half-shell, and the conservative priest who's challenging the relaxed morality of Lorenzo de Medici's Florence. That real-life historical conflict led to the "bonfire of the vanities" -- the burning of "sinful" items like art and books. Inspired by these actual events, Canadian playwright Jordan Tannahill gives Botticelli an apprentice/lover (none other that Leonardo da Vinci), and then traps him between the church and the powerful Medicis, forcing him to make an impossible choice. This American premiere of Botticelli in the Fire closes out the Woolly Mammoth Theatre's 38th season.

The Last Five Years  
The Washington County Playhouse Dinner Theater and Children's Theater The Last Five Years
 
Before it became the feature film starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan, The Last Five Years began as a stirring stage musical that was hailed as one of the 10 best shows of 2001 by TIME magazine.

There is, however, a twist: The man relives the relationship from beginning to end, while the woman relates their story in reverse. The two characters' emotional timelines converge only once -- at their wedding in the middle of the show. Written by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown (Parade), this is the story of a couple's five-year relationship, from the thrilling pangs of new love to their painful final separation. The intimate musical is playing at the Washington County Playhouse Dinner Theater and Children's Theater in Hagerstown.
