Outside Mullingar: Wry Romantic Comedy from Moonstruck Writer

Buy Tickets $22.50 $45

"I don't hate you," Rosemary says to Anthony. "I just don't like you." In the Tony-nominated Outside Mullingar by John Patrick Shanley (Doubt, Moonstruck), these two introverted neighbors have lived in rural Ireland and known each other for years, but their lives intersect sharply when a parent dies and property rights come into question. Ultimately a tenderhearted romantic comedy, Shanley's play proves that love, whether early or late, always shows up right on time. Come see why Charles Isherwood of The New York Times called Outside Mullingar "Shanley's finest work since Doubt," when it comes to the stage of Washington DC's Keegan Theatre.

Nastier than Scorsese at his bleakest, more violent than Tarantino at his bloodiest, Shakespeare's Macbeth still shocks like no other tale on the page, stage or screen. Now cutting-edge director Liesl Tommy (Eclipsed, Ruined) stages this chilling portrait of temptation, ambition and betrayal at D.C.'s Sidney Harman Hall. Set in a gloomy world of ghosts and witches, the tragedy's cycle of corruption is thrown into motion when the popular King Duncan of Scotland is murdered by his trusted friend and general Macbeth. Driven by a supernatural prophesy and his wife's deadly ambition, Macbeth goes on to claim his destiny. But just as he grasps the crown, it starts to slip through his bloody fingers.

The School For Lies: Freewheeling, Modern Take on Molière Classic

Buy Tickets $35.50 - $54 $71 - $108

Contemporary slang meets 17th-century farce in The School for Lies. Adapted from Molière's The Misanthrope, playwright David Ives (Venus in Fur, All in the Timing) transforms Molière's classic into a modern satire told entirely through verse. The result is a delightfully incongruous comedy of manners that lets you peer inside the Parisian salon of Celimene, a young widow with a sharp tongue and plenty of eager suitors. Tony Award-nominee David Ives and STC Artistic Director Michael Kahn, the team that created the award-winning French trilogy of The Liar, The Heir Apparent and The Metromaniacs, return to old stomping grounds in this uproarious update of one of the greatest masterpieces of French comedy. Outrageous gags and vicious couplets strike a hilarious balance of class and crass in this classic collision of Molière's biting satire and Ives's modern wit. See it at Lansburgh Theatre in D.C.

Brimming with poetic language and emotional longing, Tennessee Williams' memory play The Glass Menagerie is rightly considered a true classic, a work that's lost none of its power over the generations. Set in a Depression-era St. Louis tenement, aspiring poet Tom struggles with a mind-numbing job and a smothering home life. His overbearing mother, a former Southern belle, constantly pushes her son to bring home "gentleman callers" for his painfully shy sister Laura, whose collection of glass animals means everything to her. But when Tom finally produces a male visitor, the guest's presence sends shock waves through the family -- and the fragile fantasy world they've built may be irreparably shattered.
