The Lower East Side comes alive in the hands of virtuosic Obie Award-winning actress Nilaja Sun ("No Child..."), whose new solo show "Pike St." centers on a struggling Puerto Rican family living in the shadow of the Manhattan Bridge. With penetrating incisiveness, Sun tells the story of a desperate mother unable to move her stricken daughter down five flights of stairs during an approaching hurricane. As she works to keep the electricity flowing into her daughter's respirator, an entire community of vibrant characters offer their help, giving new meaning to the phrase "it takes a village." Watch in awe as she fully inhabits personas ranging from a decorated war veteran to an octogenarian neighbor in this raw and harrowing one-woman performance at Woolly Mammoth Theatre in Washington, D.C.

A stage littered with liquor bottles and café chairs transforms from a Parisian bistro to the banks of the Irati River in Spain. A bar table roars to life and charges a matador. Championed by "The New York Times" as "a lively riff on Hemingway's first and greatest novel," "The Select (The Sun Also Rises)"'s innovative staging reimagines the 1926 roman à clef via a fusion of artistic forms. As the story winds its way through France and Spain and lands in the heart of the Festival of San Fermín in Pamplona, Hemingway's narrator carries the heavy burdens of a war injury and his inability to have the woman he desires -- a woman whose romantic escapades he follows with bemused but painful fatalism. Don't miss this genre-defying work by acclaimed theatre ensemble Elevator Repair Service when it takes over D.C.'s Lansburgh Theatre. [less-]

In "The Night Alive", Tommy is a down-on-his-luck Irish bloke who finds that his one good deed will not go unpunished. A slovenly sort who's taken up residence in his uncle's Dublin house, Tommy and his best friend Doc have eked out an existence running odd jobs and plotting get-rich-quick schemes. But when he returns one night after rescuing battered and bloodied prostitute Aimee, his spontaneous act of decency brings about a glimmer of new possibilities, even as echoes from the past and the looming specter of death threaten to take it all away. Warm, wistfully funny and magical in spite of its meager surroundings, Irish playwright Conor McPherson's "The Night Alive" observes the small moments of grace that illuminate our lives and deliver us from the darkness.

Alfred Uhry's Tony Award-winning "Parade" dramatizes the racially-charged trial of Leo Frank, a Jewish factory manager wrongly accused of brutally raping and murdering a 13-year-old worker under his charge.

This transformational story -- based on an actual case -- is part murder mystery and part social commentary about a country whose behavior is often at odds with its declarations of equality. Experience this powerful musical at the Keegan Theatre in Washington DC. [less-]

In 2014, the Washington Stage Guild set out on a ambitious multiyear quest to produce George Bernard Shaw's five-part 1922 play cycle, "Back to Methuselah". And as their 30th anniversary season comes to a climax, so does their monumental undertaking. One of the very first works of science fiction-fantasy ever to appear in a theater, these rarely-seen plays by the Nobel Prize-winning satirist ("Pygmalion, Major Barbara, Saint Joan"), start with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and conclude here in the year 31,920 AD, as mankind has evolved towards immortality. "As Far as Thought Can Reach" posits a world where a group of youngsters learn some lessons of life -- and the afterlife -- from the "Ancients." Catch up on the entire "Methuselah Project" at DC's Undercroft Theatre, with a series of readings and related events. [less-]

When they start a pen-pal relationship with a white girl, the games take a dangerous and bizarre twist. Don't miss this production at the Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington, D.C. [less-]

"This play is not about my mother and me." So begins this autobiographical play by Lisa Kron, the Tony Award-winning writer and lyricist best known for her Broadway hit "Fun Home". Despite Kron's claim at the beginning of the play, "Well" delves deep into the relationship between Kron and her chronically ill, semi-invalid mother. As Kron tries to share stories from her upbringing with the audience, her mother and other characters from her past routinely break character to correct Lisa's version of events and chat with her mother about her life. This tragicomic, self-referential journey is coming to the 1st Stage Theater in Tysons. [less-]

A casual bet between Professor Henry Higgins and a friend sets the snobbish professor on a path that will change his life forever. Higgins bets he can take a grubby Cockney flower girl and transform her into a lady that can fit in at any upper crust party. But Higgins doesn't count on his "creation" having a mind of her own. George Bernard Shaw's most popular play, "Pygmalion", is perhaps more widely known as the inspiration for the musical "My Fair Lady". This witty tale from the master playwright both delighted and scandalized audiences in 1912, and this fresh interpretation at the Kensington Town Hall remains a great battle-of-the-sexes and social-class comedy.

Award-winning playwright and director Aaron Posner has taken Chekhov's "Three Sisters" and removed one seemingly vital element from the Russian classic: "the sisters". Instead, his aptly titled "No Sisters" explores the screwed-up, endlessly fascinating psyches of a different set of world-weary misfits and broken dreamers in the Chekhov universe. Because while Olga, Masha and Irina yearn for Moscow, the rest of the household and its hangers-on are grappling with their own heartache and longing, bit players in a world whose focus is elsewhere. Commissioned as a part of Studio R&D, Studio Theatre's new works initiative, "No Sisters" is an endlessly inventive and wildly funny play -- about some wildly unhappy people. [less-]
