Mosaic Theater Company of DC presents “Native Son”

Buy Tickets $17.50 - $32.50 $35 - $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.

An Explosive Look at Power, Class & Immigration

Buy Tickets $40 - $50 $64 - $81

It's Art Basel, Miami's weeklong party for the rich and famous, where socialite darling Julie reigns over the blowout her real-estate mogul father is throwing at his South Beach hotel. But when her fiancé dumps her in front of the crowd, Julie hides from her humiliation (and her father) in the hotel’s barely used storage kitchen. Her companions are Christine, a cocktail waitress who recently fled conflict-torn Venezuela, and Christine’s fiancé John, an Uber driver from the Miami slums. This explosive elixir of power, class and immigration status is a bold and contemporary take on Strindberg’s Miss Julie by vibrant rising voice Hilary Bettis (The Americans). Enjoy Queen of Basel at the Studio Theatre in Washington, DC.

Tony’s Best Play of 2017: Oslo

Buy Tickets $48.80 - $60.30 $61 - $67

When we think of monumental moments in world history, we usually think of kings, emperors and presidents. But sometimes, against all odds, it's one of us mere mortals who manages to nudge the world a step in the direction of progress. Oslo, the 2017 Tony winner for Best Play, is the story of one such instance. It's the story of a Norwegian diplomat and her husband, who, in 1993, assembled a ragtag group of would-be diplomats to attempt the impossible: broker peace between Israel and Palestine. Operating in secret and without any official bargaining power, the group dives headlong into the deadly decades-long conflict. Now this nail-biting true story comes to the Lansburgh Theatre in Washington, D.C., courtesy of Round House Theatre.

It’s not easy being one of the most influential characters in a classic drama, especially knowing you have to die at the end of every performance. What would happen if you simply refused to play along? And how would the other characters respond? The L.A. Times called Jon Klein’s modern reimagining of Ibsen’s notorious schemer “boisterously funny.” Enjoy the misadventures that ensue as Hedda desperately tries to sabotage the plot in order to avoid yet another pending demise when Resolving Hedda comes to the Undercroft Theatre in D.C.

Rachel recently recurred on the Steven Soderbergh Amazon series Red Oaks and on Judd Apatow’s HBO comedy Crashing. Her past credits include Trainwreck, Top Five, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, co-hosting The View on multiple occasions and several appearances on Inside Schumer. You may also remember Rachel co-hosting alongside Shaq on Upload with Shaquille O'Neal. Feinstein has also lent her voice to Adult Swim’s Venture Brothers and the phenomenally successful Grand Theft Auto video game franchise. See her live at the Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse.

Buy Tickets $8 - $10 $20

The Providence Players presents what has been called “The first great American play of the 21st century,” Tracy Letts’ award-winning and wickedly funny portrait of a truly dysfunctional American family. A missing father, a pill-popping mother and three sisters harboring dubious little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoma family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling mysteries. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you’ve got a major play that unflinchingly -- and uproariously --exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family. Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Tony Award for Best New Play and four other Tonys, August: Osage County is one of the most riveting and critically acclaimed plays in recent Broadway history.

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.
