In this rollicking farce set backstage at the Erlanger Theatre in Buffalo in 1953, a husband-and-wife acting team with a crumbling marriage struggle to keep their repertory ensemble together long enough to allow famed director Frank Capra to see them perform. But with a pregnant ingenue, a drunk leading man and a surprise visit from their daughter, things quickly go horribly (and hilariously) wrong. Mistaken identities, outrageous plot twists, slapstick comedy and a slew of self-obsessed performers desperately try to keep things from falling apart. The Providence Players kick off their 20th anniversary season with this fast-paced comedy at the James Lee Community Center Theater in Falls Church. [less-]

La Marquise du Châtelet was a woman born in the wrong era. A brilliant mathematician and physicist, she was the toast of the Enlightenment. Nevertheless, she's not a very well known historical figure. Voltaire got it right when he said du Châtelet was "a great man whose only fault was being a woman." Now Lauren Gunderson's play "Emilie: La Marquise du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight" resurrects this fascinating personality. Emilie finds herself back in the world of the living, patting her body in surprise and wondering at the reason for her return. She soon becomes desperate to find out whether her challenge to one of Isaac Newton's equations was correct. "I died thinking: Was I right?" she explains. "Shortly followed by: Was I loved? Shortly followed by: Does either one really matter in the end?" This smart, surprising and sexy portrait of a true genius is onstage at the Gunston Arts Center in Arlington. [less-]

Proclaimed "the greatest American play ever written," Thornton Wilder's "Our Town" looks at the power of life and death even in the brightest and most unassuming of settings. Winning the Pulitzer Prize in 1938, this hard-hitting drama has been performed on Broadway and beyond. Now, a small cast of just seven characters play what is traditionally a play with over 20 characters. Narrated by the nameless Stage Manager (played by "Angels in America"'s Jon Hudson Odom), the actors often break the fourth wall to address the audience directly. Director Aaron Posner ("Stupid F*cking Bird", "District Merchants") also deploys an ensemble of Bunraku-style puppets to portray the other townspeople beyond the seven central characters. This is "Our Town" like you've never seen it. Don't miss this quietly heartbreaking show at the Olney Theatre Center. [less-]

From Pulitzer-winning playwright Nilo Cruz ("Anna in the Tropics") comes "Sotto Voce", a story of the resiliency of true love and the enduring power of memory presented at the Edlavitch DCJCC's Theater J in Washington, D.C. German-born novelist Bemadette Kahn lost the love of her life during World War II when he fled Nazi Germany on the S.S. St. Louis, a ship carrying nearly a thousand Jewish refugees seeking haven in North America. Both Cuba and the U.S. turned the ship away, forcing many of the passengers to return to Europe and perish in Nazi concentration camps. Kahn's past resurfaces when a young Jewish-Cuban writer contacts her to research the ship's tragic voyage, forging a relationship deepened by memories of her great lost love. [less-]

Ironically, one of "Death of a Salesman"'s most misquoted lines -- "Attention must be paid!" -- is its most accurate advertisement. For attention must be paid to this iconic drama which packs a timeless emotional punch with its unflinching examination of the American Dream -- not to mention that it was also hailed by "The New York Times" as "one of the finest dramas in the whole range of the American theater." "Death of a Salesman" centers around the aging Willy Loman, who, after a lifetime as an unfulfilled traveling salesman, finds himself at the end of his career -- and the end of his tether. Winner of both the Pulitzer and the Tony for Best Play in 1949, Arthur Miller's classic still retains every ounce of its emotional impact to this day. Experience the epic extremes of humor and anguish, promise and loss at Ford's Theatre. [less-]

"Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?" It was the question that rattled the nation in 1954. Convinced that Communists and Soviet spies and sympathizers had infiltrated the U.S., Senator Joseph McCarthy called a total of 395 witnesses to testify against themselves and others. Among them were just two African-Americans: political activist Eslanda Robeson and poet and playwright Langston Hughes. Presented at MetroStage in Alexandria, "Are You Now or Have You Ever Been" is a fictional account of the demons and dilemmas faced by Hughes on the eve of his appearance before McCarthy's infamous subcommittee, performed against a backdrop of searing blues and the haunting words of one of America's greatest writers.

Mischief and merriment await in Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing", the original battle of the sexes. This witty romantic comedy shows how love brings out the best and worst in all of us. Fun-loving bachelor Benedick returns from a victory at war only to find himself caught up in another battle: a war of wits and words with the acid-tongued, headstrong Beatrice. Though they've each sworn off romance, their "merry war" of clever insults reveals the growing attraction between them. Meanwhile, Benedick's fellow soldier, Claudio, is head over heels for Hero, the governor's daughter. They will soon be wed ... if the treacherous Don John doesn't ruin everything first. Passionate and blindingly funny, "Much Ado About Nothing" is filled with some of the most brilliant comedic repartee ever written, and now you can see it at the Annapolis Shakespeare Company's Main Stage.
