Playwright Alfred Uhry brilliantly mined his Atlanta Jewish upbringing for his Pulitzer and Oscar-winning "Driving Miss Daisy", and he digs into it again for "The Last Night of Ballyhoo", resulting in the same successful mix of thought-provoking drama and laughter, with a touch of romance. Now coming to the Edlavitch DCJCC's Theater J, the Tony-winning play takes you back to December 1939, as Atlanta hosts the "Gone With the Wind" premiere and Hitler invades Poland. But the biggest concern of the Freitag family is Ballyhoo, a lavish ball for the southern Jewish elite. When Uncle Adolph brings Joe -- his new, very eligible assistant -- home for dinner, sparks fly between his niece and the Brooklyn native, whose presence lights a fuse on a family dispute over long-held beliefs and prejudices.

It's hard to imagine a world without Hamlet, Falstaff, Romeo, Juliet or any of the indelible characters and stories created by William Shakespeare -- but were it not for the diligent work of a few of The Bard's friends and contemporaries, we'd be living in that world today. Set just after Shakespeare's death in the early 17th century, "The Book of Will" is the story of two of his actors rushing to gather and publish all of his works before they're lost to time. But with the original scripts scattered all over London, collecting them all is going to be a caper that's Shakespearean in scope. This heartfelt and hilarious play, inspired by the true story behind Shakespeare's "First Folio", comes to the Round House Theatre in Bethesda. [less-]

Craving a little splash of vodka in your Christmas cheer? Prefer watching "Bad Santa" over "It's a Wonderful Life"? Think naughty > nice? David Sedaris sympathizes. In 1992, the now-famous humorist wrote an autobiographical essay about being broke and working as an elf at the massive Macy's department store in New York. The essay was adapted into a one-man show, and it's now the funniest, most irreverent anti-holiday classic. If you need a break from a crazy family, mall madness or cloying carols, Cameron Folmar dons the candy-cane tights for a heaping dose of (anti)holiday hilarity in "The Santaland Diaries" at Drafthouse Comedy Theater in Washington, DC.
