Amadeus  
Folger Theatre Amadeus
 
Genius and jealousy collide in the opulent salons and opera houses of 18th-century Vienna.

The mediocre Salieri will do everything in his power to destroy his musical rival. Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Play.

Singin' in the Rain  
Olney Theatre Center Singin' in the Rain
 
The greatest movie musical of all time comes to life on the Mainstage and for once, rain during the holidays is guaranteed to make you smile. Comden and Green's ingenious tale of Hollywood's transition from the silent era is buoyed by the thrill of live singing and dancing to some of the greatest songs in the American canon, including "Good Mornin'," "Make 'em Laugh," and "Moses Supposes." Our biggest production of the year is certain to impress Broadway regulars and enchant kids meeting this musical for the first time.
