Spine: Is ‘Avenue Q’ Just What the Doctor Ordered? Constellation Theatre’s Marvelous Production

Let me be absolutely clear. I loved Constellation Theatre Company’s production of Avenue Q, which opened last night to a packed, laughing audience.

Capital Fringe Review: ‘McPherson Madness’ by Maddie Gaw

Cast members ask for change, hand out programs as if they’re flyers for the Occupy D.C. movement, and many converge in that now clichéd “drum” circle (this one was really a guitar circle).
