Back By Popular Demand! A hit at JxJ 2019. During the 1950s, free-spirited, mostly Jewish dancers from New York City fell head over heels for the mambo, a hot dance from Havana, Cuba. Their love for Latin rhythms earned them a nickname: the mamboniks. D.C.-based filmmaker Lex Gillespie tracks their joyous story from the Jewish resorts of the Catskills to Manhattan’s famed Palladium Ballroom, Florida’s Gold Coast Ballroom and of course Havana. Featuring the infectious sounds of Tito Puente, Celia Cruz and Mongo Santamaría, Gillespie explores how Jewish people, Latinos and African-Americans met on the dance floor at a time when America was racially segregated, and anti-Semitism was commonplace.

Official Selection — Tribeca Film Festival. Things are not going according to plan for Scott (Ben Schwartz), a stand-up comedian begrudgingly returning to Long Island after striking out on the Los Angeles comedy scene. He’s humiliated to move back in with his family and haunted by what could have been with Becky (Eloise Mumford), the hometown girlfriend he abruptly left for the West Coast. Wracked with doubt and facing the prospect of a soul-crushing “real” job, Ben finds an unexpected connection with Marty (Billy Crystal), a local dermatologist and charming barfly with a penchant for karaoke. Scott learns that Marty’s larger-than-life personality and alcoholism mask past disappointments of his own. As their unlikely friendship evolves, Marty and Scott find the strength to start confronting their long-simmering regrets. Matt Ratner’s feature debut is a poignant, warmhearted comedy anchored by its leads’ easy rapport and Crystal’s boundless charisma. Nate Corddry and Grace Gummer round out a strong supporting cast in this ode to companionship and facing failure together.

Violinist Simone Porter is the virtuoso soloist in Vivaldi’s dazzlingly imaginative evocation of the sights, sounds and sensations of the Italian seasons. The Four Seasons violin concertos are so richly detailed you can feel the sirocco of summer, hear the dancing villagers of Autumn and slip on the ice of a Venetian winter. The master of the New Tango, Ástor Piazzolla, brought the wild dance of Buenos Aires into the concert hall. There’s an apt nod to Vivaldi in Leonid Desyatnikov’s sensational string arrangements of the Estaciones Porteñas, but they have an atmosphere that’s unique to Buenos Aires — fiercely sensual in summer, hazy and melancholic in winter, all moving to the heartbeat of the tango. Vivaldi’s seasons enfold Piazzolla’s in this dance around the year.

Rorschach Theatre’s first musical follows Melvin Ferd the Third, who is dumped into a vat of radioactive toxic waste, only to reemerge as The Toxic Avenger, a superhero hell-bent on cleaning up America. A seven-foot mutant freak with superhuman strength and a heart as big as Newark, he’s out to end global warming, woo the blind librarian in town, and save the world. Based on the cult classic Troma film, The Toxic Avenger, and directed by Helen Hayes Award winner Tracy Lynn Olivera, this show takes Rorschach’s one-of-a-kind aesthetic and spins it in a whole new direction. Classic B-movie tropes of monsters-run-amok, star-crossed lovers and comically evil politicians collide with an 80’s Hair Band Rock aesthetic to tell a tale that’s both gruesome and glorious. With a set design by Pointless Theatre Company’s Patti Kalil and video design by 9:30 Club VJ and American University professor Kylos Brannon, audiences will be immersed in the sights and sounds of the most polluted town in New Jersey: “If the pollution doesn’t kill you, the aroma will.”

Salutations. I live in Los Angeles, writing and telling jokes. I’ve done a half-hour for Comedy Central Stand-Up Presents and was named one of their Comedy Central’s “Comics to Watch.” I’ve performed stand-up comedy twice on Conan. I’ve also appeared on Netflix’s Cooking on High, Viceland’s Flophouse, and The Top 14 Greatest Valentine’s Day Movies of All Time on the CW. One time, I got a standing ovation for telling a single joke! I’m featured on the Holy F*ck. Live Comedy. album. I’ve been funny at SouthxSouthwest, Moontower Comedy Festival, Funny or Die’s Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, RIOT Festival, and more. A while back I made it on one of those top ten comedy lists.

Having been married for 15 years, Ella and Avner seem to their friends to be the perfect couple. Avner’s faith in his marriage, however, takes a hit when he accidentally finds out that Ella is having an affair. Instead of confronting her, he starts recording her phone calls, repeatedly listening to them in an attempt to find clues, and possible reasons. The discoveries he makes about the woman he thought he knew and understood shatter his world, and his family. Superbly written, directed and acted, Echo is a suspenseful and stylish psychological thriller playing at Cafritz Hall in Washington, D.C., starring Yael Abecassis and Yoram Toledano (who both starred in the enormously popular Prisoners of War, the Israeli forerunner to Homeland).

A Poet’s Love: It’s Complicated!

Buy Tickets COMP - $22.50 $15 - $45

Come experience the evolving meaning of love this Valentine’s Day weekend! Robert Schumann wrote Dichterliebe (A Poet’s Love) in 1840 for voice and piano. The texts for his songs come from poet Heinrich Heine’s Lyrisches Intermezzo. This song cycle is considered part of the central core of the genre in musical literature. It gets reinterpreted for 21stcentury by composer Christian Jost. Jost’s wife, Mezzo soprano Stella Doufexis had previously recorded Schumann’s Dichterliebe, which was unusual since the piece is traditionally sung by a male voice. Tragically, while Jost was writing his “reimagined” version of Dichterliebe, Stella passed away from an aggressive form of cancer. Charged with the pain of her death, Christian Jost completed his own version of Dichterliebe in 2017 for voice and 9 instruments, raising essential questions about the nature of creativity and the role played by suffering in art. Experience the evolving meaning of love as we journey from Schumann’s original Dichterliebe into the modern, deconstructed and deeply personal version of Jost’s, featuring mezzo-soprano Devony Smith and tenor, Vale Rideout, and directed by Jay Brock.

He was guided in his early career by Dean Fraser, who also performs in his band and produces much of Riley’s work. Riley has released three albums, Challenges (2004), Parables (2006) and Contagious (2009).

There may only be one legitimate question when it comes to the Chicago contemporary music collective Ensemble Dal Niente: What won’t they do? In less than two decades, they’ve built provocative programs and a striking international reputation by rendering unapologetically difficult music—oftentimes, the sort that other so-called new music ensembles will not or cannot try—with unguarded ardor and commitment. To wit, their expansive repertoire ranges from John Adams to John Cage to John Zorn, from Ashley Fure to Arvo Pärt to arrangements of Radiohead, from members of the rock band Deerhoof to members of the vital Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians. Capable of shifting from soloists enacting the most exacting extended techniques to a chamber ensemble of two-dozen members in perfect lockstep, Ensemble Dal Niente has played the work of Georg Friedrich Haas in total darkness and pulled more than 100 works from cutting-edge composers into the light of world premieres. They will fling pianos open to play only their innards, scratch slivers of sound from stringed instruments, and weave dramatic vocal techniques and instrumental leaps of faith into audacious multimedia shows. They are, as The Los Angeles Times has rightly noted, “[bringing] hard-core Modernism up to date.” Ensemble Dal Niente does all this with an unbridled and contagious sense of enthusiasm, so that, even if you are prone to the classic portion of classical music, you glean that there must be something there to discover, to consider, to cherish. They rank among the world’s most capable guides.

What else could go wrong? Tensions run high as Lloyd Dallas, the director of this play’s play-within-a-play, struggles to prepare his accident-prone cast for the opening of British bedroom comedy Nothing On. Missed cues, jealous lovers, a lost contact lens and a troublesome plate of sardines all conspire to ruin the performance. Michael Frayn’s award-winning farce details the hilarity that ensues behind the scenes of a theatrical production as characters attempt to untangle the chaos and salvage the play. “The most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy. A spectacularly funny, peerless backstage farce. This dizzy, well-known romp is festival of delirium,” The New York Times.

Nathalie Joachim with Spektral Quartet: Fanm d’Ayiti

Buy Tickets $12.50 $25

Though born in Brooklyn, the Haitian roots of Nathalie Joachim run deep. As a child, she would spend hours singing with her grandmother, de facto lessons in the rich polyglot traditions of Haitian folk music. Inspired by that pedigree, Joachim—best known as the flutist and co-artistic director of adventurous chamber ensemble eighth blackbird—turned to Haiti for the genesis of “Fanm d’Ayiti,” a mighty reappraisal of the overlooked women who helped shape the sounds and cultural backbone of Haiti. Combining field recordings of her grandmother and Haitian choirs that she captured during an extended family trip there with updates on some of the nation’s anthems, “Fanm d’Ayiti” reimagines the sounds of Joachim’s roots for new ears. But, as Joachim has put it, performing this work alone wouldn’t be very Haitian of her. Joachim performs this stirring and sensitive evening-length work with the Spektral Quartet, a Chicago ensemble whose precise playing and incessant musical curiosity earned a 2017 Grammy nomination. Like Joachim, they are interested in the ways the past interacts with the present, or how what has already happened informs what we now witness. As Joachim sings and samples from the works of her ancestral land, adding flute accents, they offer texture and depth, filling in the emotional spaces of this profound new work about geography and equality, culture and time. This performance is open to all ages! Because MilkBoy ArtHouse is a music venue, restaurant, and bar, ID checks will take place as you enter the venue.

Buy Tickets $12.50 $25

Inspired by Uruguayan writer Mario Benedetti’s short story “La Noche de los Feos,” Chilean theater troupe Teatro y Su Doble tenderly and playfully express the unlikely meeting of two strangers in line at a movie theater. United by the loneliness caused by their physical deformities, the pair quickly realize that they have much in common. Drawing deeply mature emotions, Teatro y Su Doble craft beautiful scenes that touch the soul, despite—or, perhaps, due to—their fundamental strangeness. Chilean theater troupe Teatro y Su Doble is a fiercely creative force. Its multimedia storytelling process borrows techniques from puppetry and animation to create a bold analog to traditional theater. FEOS, which debuted at Chile’s esteemed Santiago a Mil International Festival in 2015, refines this innovative approach. Performed in Spanish with English Supertitles.

Buy Tickets $12.50 $25

Performed by an all-female cast, this production of Henrik Ibsen’s classic A Doll House questions the roles that society assigns to men and women. Set in late nineteenth-century Norway, the play follows Nora, a woman who seeks self-fulfillment and slams the door on the dollhouse that is her marriage. This fresh perspective on the classic play encourages audiences to question what has changed since 19th-century Europe through the interpretations of six women actors playing male and female characters. Note: This production uses an alternative translation of the title, A Doll House, rather than the more commonly known title, A Doll’s House.

Clayton LeBouef’s RS/24 makes a return visit to the Playhouse. Since its inception, the mission of the Anacostia Playhouse, nestled in the heart of the historic Anacostia community, has been to focus on producing quality and relevant works that appeal to every generation. Keeping with this tradition, we are proud to announce that kicking off 2020 will be the return of RS/24, the riveting original work of Clayton LeBouef. Recognized for his brilliant performances on TV, film and stage, with roles in NBC’s Homicide Life on the Streets, HBO’s The Wire and Something the Lord Made, Mr. LeBouef’s ethereal drama explores how the lives of characters Hubie, a record shop owner and a distressed Street Worker, collide one night on a chance meeting. Each is unaware of how this encounter will play a significant role in carving out their destinies. In reverence to the African Diaspora, RS/24 also draws upon ancestral wisdom, vintage music and the return of vinyl to show the connection of how African American music has shaped world culture. RS/24 is a must-see.

One of the most enchanting and popular piano concerti ever written, Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A minor is for many the epitome of nineteenth-century Romanticism, showing the great influence of both Schumann and Liszt, as well as Grieg’s own fascination with Norwegian folk melodies. The performance also features Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture and Gipps’s Song for Orchestra. Schumann’s powerfully luminous Symphony No. 2 concludes the program.

The lines between fact and fiction blur with hilarious and moving results in Hwang’s unreliable memoir, where he calls “himself” DHH. Fresh off his Tony Award win, DHH leads a protest against “yellowface” casting in the original Broadway production of Miss Saigon. At the same time, he mistakenly casts a Caucasian actor in the lead Asian role of his own Broadway-bound play Face Value. Meanwhile, DHH’s father finds himself ensnared in a political scandal rooted in anti-Chinese paranoia. As these stories intertwine, DHH is forced to confront the complex and changing role that “face” plays in American life today.

Bilbo, one of the most conservative of all Hobbits, is asked to leave his large, roomy and very dry home in the ground in order to set off as chief robber in an attempt to recover an important treasure. It’s the last thing that any sensitive Hobbit would want to do, but great benefit eventually results — not only for Bilbo but for all of the Hobbits who inhabit Middle Earth — and the hearts of those children and adults who continue to enjoy this kind of magic.

After moving audiences at The Clarice in 2017, trumpeter, composer and comedian Ahamefule J. Oluo returns with Susan, a memoir delivered through wry comedic monologue and live, grand-scale big-band and jazz. This vulnerable theatrical work about his childhood tells the story of how his Midwestern mother was left to raise two bi-racial babies after the sudden departure of her husband, a Nigerian doctoral student. There’s obvious chemistry between Oluo’s singular voice and the grand creation of the music; at times, when the story is too painful for him, the ensemble carries the show. Susan is a category-defying reflection on how race, class, and appearance impact everyone—and how we play the hand that we’re dealt. In 2002, after being selected as Town Hall Seattle’s first-ever artist-in-residence, Oluo realized he wanted to do something different. After years of performing and recording with prominent musicians like John Zorn, Hey Marseilles, Wayne Horvitz and Macklemore, Oluo knew he had his own story to tell—and the diverse set of skills to do it. During his time in residency, he began experimenting with blending big-band, jazz, stand-up and memoir to formulate a new musical and theatrical identity.

Cameron Giles, better known worldwide as the Grammy-nominated, multiplatinum-selling rapper Cam’ron, is one of the few artists in hip-hop who has managed to remain relevant for nearly as long as the music has existed. Born and raised in Harlem, Cam’ron epitomizes the unmatched entrepreneurial spirit of the neighborhood between the 110th and 155th blocks of Upper Manhattan, having successfully tackled the roles of hip-hop artist, director, actor, screenwriter, designer, and entrepreneur with finesse. He is the de facto leader and founding member of The Diplomats, arguably one of the most influential crews in hip-hop, that has left an indelible mark on the style, language, and swagger of both New York City and hip-hop culture. Cam’ron is undoubtedly one of the greatest anti-heroes in hip-hop: He’s the man who spawned a thousand memes, drove an unmistakable “Laffy Taffy” Range Rover, wore head-to-toe pink mink in the 2002 Mercedes Benz NY Fashion Week, told Anderson Cooper he wouldn’t snitch on a hypothetical serial killer neighbor, humiliated Bill O’Reilly on his own show, closed out Mark McNairy’s runway show wearing custom Dipset capes, and whose face unofficially re-appropriated on everything from orthopedic shoes to Valentine’s Day cards. Cam’ron is truly one of a kind, a paradoxical living legend in pop culture whose point of view as hysterical as it is harrowing and accessible as it is absurd. Unapologetic and unstoppable, Killa Cam is back with a vengeance.

Perhaps best known as the comedian who puts the cerebral in Cerebral Palsy, Josh Blue centers much of his self-deprecating act around his disability. He exploded onto the national comedy scene by capturing the attention and endearment of the country as the winner of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Having already established himself as one of the most sought after comedians on the college circuit, his weekly appearances on Last Comic in the summer of 2006 expanded his fan base exponentially. Josh starred in Comedy Central Presents: Josh Blue, which received rave reviews from fans and critics alike and was named the 11th best special on the network in 2011. Most recently, Josh debuted a one-hour Showtime special, Sticky Change, where he cracks jokes and tells stories about everything from being a white African-American, to dealing with cabbies who think he’ll pay in sticky change. The special is currently available on Netflix. Josh has appeared as a regular guest star on Comedy Central’s Mind of Mencia and his story has been featured on Fox, CBS, ABC, and MSNBC. He was the first comedian to perform stand-up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, was named Best Winning Reality Show Guest for his appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly, and made a standout guest appearance on Comics Unleashed. He became the first comic to debut a stand-up special on the big screen when 7 More Days in the Tank was shown in theatres across the country. Blue is set to appear in the sports based comedy 108 Stitches.

On a dangerous mission inside a combat zone, Sgt. Davis must work with the perpetrator of her sexual attack to get her squad home safely. Can peace ever be possible? This one-woman show written and performed by Mary Jane Wells is based on the true story of a lesbian soldier in the U.S. Army: an outsider who wouldn’t quit. She loved its challenges and thrived within that rigorous world. At the time she enlisted, before “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was repealed, she was the only woman in her entire company and went on to lead a squad into combat. A survivor of military sexual trauma, she served on the battlefield alongside her assailant. Heroine at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. is an incredible human story about one soldier’s experiences, and what healing and forgiveness really mean.

Prologue Theatre continues to explore this season’s question “Where do we look to find ourselves?” with Craig Wright’s Recent Tragic Events. It is September 12th, 2001; the setting is the Minneapolis apartment of Waverly, a young advertising executive. Soon to venture on a blind date amidst the television news coverage of the September 11th attacks, Waverly becomes preoccupied when she discovers that her twin sister, Wendy, a student in New York, has not been heard from. Waverly reassures herself that Wendy had no reason to be at the World Trade Center. As the evening unfolds, Waverly and her blind date, Andrew, an airport bookstore manager, realize that they are connected by a succession of bizarre coincidences. As Waverly awaits word on Wendy, the date is complicated by visits from her crazed-musician neighbor, Ron, and his girlfriend, Nancy, and a startling visit from Waverly’s great aunt, Joyce Carol Oates — played by a sock puppet.

Nominated for Quebec’s 2016 Critic’s Awards, Huff is a daring solo show by award-winning Cree actor and playwright Cliff Cardinal, one of the most exciting new voices in Canadian theater. In this wrenching, yet darkly comic tale, Wind and his brothers are caught in a torrent of drug abuse and struggling to cope with the death of their mother. Wind’s fantastic dream world bleeds into his haunting reality, as he’s preyed on by the Trickster through the hallways at school, the abandoned motel he loves more than home, and his own fragile psyche. With his signature biting humor and raw, vivid imagery, Cardinal expertly portrays over a dozen characters.

In this inspiring true story from Oscar Award-winning writer David Seidler, Great Britain’s reluctant monarch finds a surprising ally in an unexpected place. A generation before the royal family we know today, Queen Elizabeth’s father George VI would ascend the throne, a most unlikely king thrust into the spotlight after his brother David gives up the crown to marry American divorcée Wallis Simpson. Struggling with a chronic stammer, Bertie (as his family knew him) must speak to his nation as it stands on the brink of World War II. Enter an unconventional speech therapist named Lionel Logue, whose methods are anything but common. With Logue’s help Bertie finds his voice, and forever changes the course of history. Portraying these two extraordinary men are Harry Hadden-Paton (Broadway’s My Fair Lady, Downton Abbey, The Crown) and James Frain (The Tudors, True Blood, The White Queen), who lead a stellar cast that brings Seidler’s drama to life on stage — as he first imagined it — in this not-to-be missed North American premiere.
