It's September 12th, 2001 and "Recent Tragic Events" checks in on Waverly, a young advertising executive in Minneapolis who's about to venture on an extremely ill-timed blind date. The idea of going out evolves into an evening in, as Waverly becomes increasingly concerned about her twin sister, a New Yorker who's been unaccounted for since 9/11. As the evening unfolds, Waverly and her blind date Andrew realize that they're connected by a succession of bizarre coincidences. Their date is further complicated by visits from her crazy neighbors and Waverly's great-aunt Joyce Carol Oates, who's played by a sock puppet. Filled with whimsy but rooted in tragedy, this comedy is playwright Craig Wright's ("Six Feet Under", "Lost") existential exploration of fate versus free will. Watch the date unfold, one bizarre turn after another, when "Recent Tragic Events" comes to St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C. [less-]

"Charm" offers a peek into the colorful inner-workings of an etiquette class taught by Mama Darleena Andrews, an African-American transgender woman working at an LGBTQ organization known as The Center. Mama attempts to share her rules of proper behavior with an eclectic youth group that counts a Latina transwoman, a cisgendered straight black couple and a gay suburban teen among its ranks. Though her students initially struggle to see how etiquette relates to their daily battles with identity, poverty and prejudice, Mama's powerful love and unapologetic attitude eventually win them over. Inspired by a true story, "Charm" carries a message of peace and dignity, as Mama and her students must ultimately find a new way to respect each other and redefine what "having charm" means. Now, the Atlas Performing Arts Center brings Philip Dawkins' fresh-faced take on sexuality, race and gender identity to Washington, DC. [less-]

As Hilary attempts to break down the components of this "hard problem," she finds herself up against her lover (and academic mentor) in a fight to defend the soul, altruism and even religion from modern science.

Set against the dramatic backdrop of political and social upheaval in 1963 Louisiana, "Caroline, or Change" is a Tony-nominated musical that features one of the most powerful female leads in the history of musical theater.

In this sexy French farce, it's 1960 and Parisian womanizer Bernard is enjoying the good life with his three fiancées -- all beautiful airline hostesses with frequent (but never overlapping) layovers in Paris. And thanks to Bernard's faithful housekeeper, who nimbly switches out food and photos in his apartment according to schedule, the women will never find out about each other. Or so it seems, until a new, faster Boeing jet throws the airline schedules out of whack and Bernard finds himself with all three women on his hands at once. Add Bernard's friend -- who's hilariously bad at keeping all the lies straight -- to the mix, and the whole plan is poised to fall apart. This slapstick comedy from French playwright Marc Camoletti won a Tony on Broadway and was made into a 1965 film starring Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis. Now you can laugh along with all the saucy fun at this production of "Boeing Boeing" at The Highwood Theatre in Silver Spring. [less-]
