Sheltered  
Theater J Sheltered
 
It is 1939, and Hitler's assault on Europe has begun. Though much of the world has turned its back on the Jews of Europe, Evelyn and Leonard Kirsch suspect that the menace is real. This ordinary American couple makes a bold decision that could save the lives of many Jewish children and change the course of history. But first, they must convince their estranged friends to help. What begins as a night of cocktails and conversation becomes a tense negotiation of politics, morality, and survival - and the stakes are life and death. A suspenseful story that will bring you to the edge of your seat. Featuring McLean Fletcher, Kimberly Gilbert, David Schlumpf, Alexander Strain and Erin Weaver.

When an altercation with a teacher at his private school threatens Omari's future, Nya has to fight a system that's against him in any environment. A searing, eloquent, and deeply compassionate look at a broken education system, the moments we are pushed to our limits, and the ferocity of one parent's love.

The Merry Wives of Windsor  
Folger Theatre The Merry Wives of Windsor
 
Some appetites never go out of style. The pursuit of money is bound to backfire when the targets are smarter than their gold-digging schemer. Falstaff's dubious plan to woo Windsor's wealthy housewives is met with hilarious retaliation, when the ladies devise a plot to teach him a lesson he won't soon forget. The comedic comeuppance is an absolute treat as Aaron Posner directs The Merry Wives of Windsor, Shakespeare's delightful comedy on love, money, deception and the power of women.
