BBQ, Beer & a Relaxing Float Down the Potomac

Buy Tickets $69 $107

Take a second and picture your perfect summer escape from the hustle and bustle of D.C. Now, we’re not mind readers, but it’s probably a fair guess that your summer fantasy included cold beer, barbecue and an afternoon of lazy shenanigans on a major body of water. And if that’s the case, you’re in luck — because that fantasy can become a reality on the River Tubing and Brewery Tour. On the day of the trip, your only responsibility is meeting the bus at one of the pickup locations — and after that, all you’ve got to do is take it easy. The bus will whisk you away to a three-hour river tubing experience where you — and your floating cooler, if you want to bring one — will drift down the beautiful Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers. Once you’ve had your fill, hop out of the river for a hearty BBQ lunch, followed by a quick drive over to the award winning Vanish Farmhouse Brewery.

The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui

Buy Tickets $17.50 - $22.50 $35 - $45

Arturo Ui is a tale of the meteoric rise of a small-time Brooklyn hoodlum who takes over the cauliflower racket in 1930s Chicago. Ui ruthlessly disposes of his competitors to enrich himself and gain power. Both entertaining and provocative, this play is a powerful parable to Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in Germany. It also elicits comparisons to members of our government who aim to seize more power and control over us. Don’t miss this spellbinding play, which depicts evil fascism on the march while portraying the dark sides of human nature. This story reminds us how those who lust for power and expand the grips of government often lead us to tyranny. Arturo Ui at D.C.’s Atlas Performing Arts Center is fourth play by Bertolt Brecht that Scena Theatre has produced in its 32-year history. It contains some scenes depicting violence. It’s suitable for patrons ages 14 and older and parental discretion is advised.

An international hit, this Washington, D.C. premiere is inspired by real life events. In 1969, in a segregated city in the American Midwest, a 14 year-old black girl named Vivian was shot by a white cop, igniting one of the worst race riots in American history. No one knew anything about her, just her name, her age and how she died. This fantasia for two actors gives Vivian a life, a family, a love of music.

The McLean Community Players return to the Alden Theatre in the McLean Community Center with the musical Seussical. Seussical brings together many beloved Dr. Seuss characters, including the Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Maizie La Bird, the Grinch, JoJo and the Whos. The Cat narrates the story — pulled from more than a dozen Dr. Seuss books — of Horton’s adventures while protecting The Whos. The characters travel everywhere from the Jungle of Nool to Whoville, the Circus McGurkus, and other far off destinations. The music embraces many styles, including Latin, pop, swing, and R&B. The themes of bravery, loyalty, love, and the power of imagination make this musical appealing to theater-goers of all ages. Seussical was co-conceived by Eric Idle, Stephen Flaherty (music and book) and Lynn Ahrens (lyrics and book).

The prestigious Explorers Club is in crisis: their acting president wants to admit a woman, and their bartender is terrible. True, this female candidate is brilliant, beautiful, and has discovered a legendary Lost City, but the decision to let in a woman could shake the very foundation of the British Empire, and how do you make such a decision without a decent drink?

Pulitzer Prize winning Lynn Nottage weaves a lyrical and powerful story in Intimate Apparel of a talented African-American seamstress in New York City at the turn of the previous century, who sews for rich white and poor black clients alike, and saves her earnings so she can someday open her own beauty parlor. She also longs for a loving husband and has a long-distance pen-pal romance with a Barbadian laborer. When he shows up in person, however, he is not the articulate or charming man he seemed to be in his letters. Although deeply wounded, she chooses to move forward with her life, unbroken by a string of betrayals and abandonment. Audiences will be captivated by this poignant and pulls no punches portrait of passion and loneliness.

Fire In My Eyes is a new dramatic play inspired by the pain the playwright has observed in wives, mothers, and grandmothers who have launched causes to bring about change for some of the senseless deaths of their love ones. The writer describes the steps a grandmother takes to seek justice for her grandson who was accidentally killed by police. The play tackles the larger issue of justice for black citizens in the context of national values regarding systemic police violence against black men. The story explores the painful conflicts within a community, between police, politicians, and African Americans engaged in finding solutions to complex socioeconomic and education issues in the community, and it reveals how the incident affects the lives of everyone i.e., the families of the victim, policemen, and society.

In this outrageous satire about stereotypes, political correctness flies out the window as two Chinese-American siblings search for their authentic selves. Albert Chen is a computer programmer so modest he lets others take credit for his work. His sister Jennifer, a doctor, is so professionally driven she can’t sustain a relationship (even if she could find someone worthy of her work ethic). Despite their Ivy League educations, musical virtuosity and impeccable manners, the siblings mount a delayed adolescent rebellion against their disappointed Tiger Mother (and equally demanding Tiger Father). They embark on an “Asian Freedom Tour” that takes them to the People’s Republic of China, where the tour goes — no spoilers — terribly wrong. By Mike Lew. Directed by Natsu Onoda Power.
