Assassins-500x500

Review: ‘Assassins’ at Pallas Theatre Collective

This season for whatever reason—and far be it from me to speculate—three theater companies in the nation’s capital are presenting Stephen Sondheim’s tunefully insolent tribute to presidential assassins. Well, tribute might not quite be right. The story told in Sondheim’s music and lyrics and John Weidman’s book is actually more a theatrical visit to the […]

‘Twelfth Night’ at The George Washington University by Rick Westerkamp

The George Washington University’s Department of Theatre and Dance has an engaging and lively production of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, running through the weekend.
