The Last Five Years: Bittersweet Musical About Marriage & Memory With a Twist

Buy Tickets $32 $48

Before it became the feature film starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan, The Last Five Years began as a stirring stage musical that was hailed as one of the 10 best shows of 2001 by TIME magazine. Told through inventive and heartrending songs, The Last Five Years is a two-person show that navigates the ups and downs of a marriage. There is, however, a twist: The man relives the relationship from beginning to end, while the woman relates their story in reverse. The two characters' emotional timelines converge only once -- at their wedding in the middle of the show. Written by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown (Parade), this is the story of a couple's five-year relationship, from the thrilling pangs of new love to their painful final separation. The intimate musical is playing at the Washington County Playhouse Dinner Theater and Children's Theater in Hagerstown.

Buy Tickets $12.50 $25

Snake Telegram is a soft and vicious solo, which unravels from maneuvered folds into an operetta of savage and coarse dimensions. Both mystery and surprise, Sarah Beth Oppenheim weaves quirky-luscious movement from coil to cry. With a handmade sensibility, the work's plucked and tarnished movements contrast a soundtrack of cool, cool jazz. An exploration of gender and femininity, Oppenheim culminates three years of research into the self and how one navigates the pitfalls and pratfalls of contemporary womanhood. With dance theater elements of stylized physicality, comfort extremes, character work and audience engagement, the work offers tethers and branches for others to connect and yield their own experiences. Founded in 1980, Washington DC's Dance Place builds a community of artists, audiences and students through high quality performances, commissions, training and educational programs.

Abraham Lincoln was a crucial figure in American history, and many of the key events of his life and presidency took place right here in the heart of Washington, D.C. Although much of the city's character from the Civil War era is gone, many sights still evoke Lincoln's life and times -- and one of the expert guides from Washington Walks will show them to you. The busy Washington streets are not that different today than they would have been in the 1860s, when the president himself made his way through them -- except that 21st-century Washingtonians benefit from sidewalks and paved thoroughfares rather than dirt pathways. In Lincoln's day the area would have often been a muddy slog. As you walk on this two-hour guided tour, hear the fascinating story of the first American leader to be assassinated.

Stories of the world come alive at the Newseum, where you can go behind the scenes to experience how and why news is made. See some of the final photographs of the only journalist who died covering the 9/11 attacks, witness the epic struggle of the civil rights movement in the '60s, marvel at a comprehensive collection of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs and hear never-before-told stories from the journalists and photographers who stood on the front lines of history. This high-tech museum features seven levels of galleries and exhibits, including the Berlin Wall Gallery, which features eight 12-foot-high sections of the actual wall and a three-story East German guard tower. There are also theaters, retail spaces and visitor services where you can explore electronic news, unique artifacts, photojournalism, news history and world news. And, since there's so much to see, your ticket is good for two consecutive days. Take your time and see half the first day, then return the next day to catch what you missed.

After dazzling audiences in New York and Boston -- and winning the 2013 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical -- an exciting new staging of Pippin comes to Alexandria. This updated version of the Broadway classic infuses the production with a modern vision through the millennial lens, while still rocking the music and lyrics of Stephen Schwartz, the award-winning composer of Wicked and Godspell. With classic songs like "Corner of the Sky," "No Time at All," "Magic to Do" and "Extraordinary," and recreated versions of Bob Fosse's original choreography, this sexy and sophisticated version of Pippin tells the story of the son of Charlemagne, leader of the Holy Roman Empire, who goes on a death-defying journey to find meaning in life. He encounters love, sex, war and politics, and must ultimately choose between a life that's ordinary or a flash of singular glory. Monumental Theatre Company, winner of the 2018 Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Emerging Theatre Company, brings the musical to the Ainslie Arts Center.

Steven Negron aka Chicklet is a young up-and-coming comedian who got his start going viral on IG. Putting up hilarious videos of him and his girlfriend Maleni in hilarious fights led him to be claimed as "the chillest boyfriend to ever exist" by Revolt and "Instagram's favorite couple" by People en Español. He and Maleni simply show people how a young couple actually deals with life in their own New York kind of way. Chicklet's other half Maleni Cruz is young and fiesty, who's made a name for herself by being the girl that "wears the pants" in their videos. Couples will always disagree and argue, but Maleni always lets it be known when she's not happy or doesn't agree with Chicklet's antics. You may not see her in all the videos but you always hear her and know she's close by ... real close. Catch these two "duke it out" at the Baltimore Comedy Factory.
