Mosaic Theater Company of DC presents “Native Son”

Buy Tickets $25 - $32.50 $50 - $65

Richard Wright’s iconic novel about oppression, freedom, and justice comes to life on stage in this ground-breaking adaptation. Suffocating in rat-infested poverty on the South Side of Chicago in the 1930s, 20-year-old Bigger Thomas struggles to find a place for himself in a world whose prejudice has shut him out. After taking a job in a wealthy white man’s house, Bigger unwittingly unleashes a series of events that violently and irrevocably seal his fate. Adapted with theatrical ingenuity by Chicago’s own Nambi E. Kelley, this Native Son captures the power of Richard Wright’s novel for a whole new generation.

Walt Disney tried it, Tim Burton, too, but neither man (or any of the hundreds of others who have made the attempt) succeeded in recreating Alice in Wonderland quite like the Creative Cauldron’s take at ArtSpace Falls Church. The inventive music of Matt Conner, the over-the-top set and puppet designs of Margie Jervis and the inventive acting of the Learning Theater Ensemble come together to conjure up a Wonderland that would make author Lewis Carroll proud. So take the plunge down the rabbit hole into a “curiouser and curiouser” world filled with such classic characters as the White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, the Caterpillar, the Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter.

The 2nd Annual DC Comedy Festival is in full effect, and you won’t want to miss stand-up comedian, improviser and actor Alice Wetterlund when she appears at the Drafthouse Comedy Theater. The Internet is plastered with gifs of her hilarious appearances on the MTV comedy hit Girl Code. But popular as they are, the show clips don’t do her “non-yelling brand of comedy” full justice. Wetterlund’s laidback energy is belied by a fierce and uncompromising wit that gives her poster-ready aphorisms and throwaway insights a sharp edge. It’s not for nothing that Wetterlund was named a “New Face for 2013” at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Comedy Festival and has appeared on New Girl, HBO’s Silicon Valley and Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates.

When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

Dorian Belle is a big deal. He’s a Canadian pop sweetheart, and he’s ready to be taken seriously. So his people hire his favorite hip-hop artists — Black and Alexand, the “bad boy” rappers of Petty Young Goons — to help him toughen up his image. They’re black, he’s white. They’re from Chicago, he’s from Canada. It’s all going to be broadcast live on reality TV. What could possibly go wrong? Inspired by Shaw’s Pygmalion, this world premiere play is a blistering and entertaining look at cultural and racial appropriation in a fictionalized exchange of ideologies, vernacular and alleged street cred. P.Y.G. or the Mis-Edumacation of Dorian Belle, by Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm, comes to Washington, D.C.’s Studio Theatre.

Imagine a world without jazz. Without rock ‘n’ roll, or the blues. It’d be a pretty boring place. Luckily for all of us, we do have that music, and we owe it all to the Great Migration — the period beginning in the early 20th century when African-Americans left the South and spread their culture to the North, West and beyond. Nothing was ever the same. With their latest show, Jason and Alicia Hall Moran pay tribute to this amazing journey, drawing on their own family lore and others’ stories for a concert spanning classical to Broadway, rhythm and blues to gospel, work songs to rock ‘n’ roll. Joining them onstage are Grammy-winning vocalist Smokie Norful; operatic tenor Lawrence Brownlee; Grammy-nominated woodwind quintet Imani Winds; and the Sweet Heaven Kings, the premier brass band at the United House of Prayer in Washington.

The Peculiar Patriot Takes on the Prison System

Buy Tickets $27 - $48 $46 - $69

Betsy LaQuanda Ross is a self-proclaimed Peculiar Patriot, making regular visits to penitentiaries in order to boost the morale of her loved ones. When she’s not sharing neighborhood updates and gossip, Betsy illuminates our country’s cruel and unjust criminal justice system and its impact not only on the 2.5 million people behind bars, but also their family and friends. Written and performed by the inimitable Liza Jessie Peterson and inspired by her decades-long work with prison populations (including the notorious Riker’s Island), The Peculiar Patriot is a fierce, funny and shrewd indictment of the systemic inequity within America’s fastest growing industry, tracing its roots from the plantation to the prison yard. This performance can be seen at the Wooly Mammoth Theatre in Washington, DC.
