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.

A brisk, biting comedy about a cynic who thinks insincerity is a sin. But the joke’s on him when he falls for an ingenue who’s more than his match. Matt Minnicino’s A Misanthrope distills Molière’s best-known farce into quippy rhyming couplets. And it pokes social flattery with a hot take on the absurdity of modern hot airs. Hypocrisy has never been more hilarious. If we got snarky tweets from 17th-century France, they would sound something like this.

With jokes aimed at both ends of the political spectrum — and pretty much all of the middle, too — musical-comedy group The Capitol Steps has been eliciting laughs at democracy’s expense since 1981. If you’ve ever wanted to see Barack Obama sing a show tune, Donald Trump sing a rock song and Vladimir Putin dance shirtless, this is the show for you. The Steps’ stage show features numerous song parodies and skits, and the cast even includes some former Congressional staffers, whose firsthand experience helps make the jokes zing that much more. This legendary troupe’s recorded more than 30 albums, and their radio specials are featured on NPR stations nationwide four times a year, but there’s nothing like experiencing their cutting-edge comedy live at DC’s Ronald Reagan Building.

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.

Based on three short stories of Zora Neale Hurston (Their Eyes Were Watching God) and adapted by Jelly’s Last Jam writer George C. Wolfe, Spunk sets the human ability to endure to the strums of a guitar in a stirring musical fable. An unearthly Guitar Man and Blues Speak Woman tantalizingly interweave three tales of the early 20th century African American experience, from the fierce determination of a resilient washerwoman, to the zoot suit struts of 1940s Harlem, to the bittersweet innocence of young married love. Glowing with wit, humor and energy, resonating with evocative staging and soulful music, three tales of survival are told in the key of the blues.

Gwen & Ida: The Object is of No Importance

Buy Tickets $10 $20

The world premiere of a new play written for the DC theatre company Nu Sass Productions. This raw, powerful play demands satisfaction from artist and audience alike, urging you to look beyond the facades of meaning to the deeper truths of love, art and cats. The imagined meeting of three very real people: Gwen John, Ida Lupino and Jack Warner. Gwen John (Aubri O’Connor) is a well regarded but little known artist from Wales who lived a dizzying life between the UK and France, as a mistress to Rodin and a reclusive cat lady, as an open bisexual and a faithful Catholic, as a wandering bohemian and a child of society. Gwen is matched by the brilliant actress Rebecca Ellis, who portrays the fierce, powerful, and disregarded Ida Lupino – a tour de force actor/writer/director/producer in the early to mid 1900s. She demanded room at the table in a time no one believed a woman belonged in the rooms where it happens. The cast is rounded out by Matty Griffiths, who delights as a confounded Jack Warner, equal parts commanding and complacent as events outside his control unravel. Only 30 audience members can attend any performance, as this show is presented as part of the Small Batch Audience Series. You will hear every word, see every tear, and feel every minute of tension as you share a uniquely intimate experience at Caos on F.

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.

Donny Hathaway was an American jazz, blues, soul and gospel artist whose Grammy-winning work made him a major force on the music scene. But Hathaway was a troubled genius — a man who often refused to take the prescribed medication that was meant to help control the debilitating symptoms of his paranoid schizophrenia. Now, Mosaic Theater Company’s production of Twisted Melodies offers a fictionalized journey through that tortured and brilliant mind, giving you a glimpse into the life of a man lost in space and time as he battles a truly insidious mental illness. A theatrical experience that aims to captivate with its penetrating exploration of the psychology of a musical legend, Twisted Melodies at the Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington, D.C. is also designed to open up conversation about the ways mental illness is treated in our society.

Buy Tickets $29 - $59 $49 - $99

Fresh off its Tony-nominated Broadway revival, Falsettos arrives at the Kennedy Center in DC as “an exceptional production of a perfect musical” (The New York Times). The story revolves around a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man named Marvin, his wife, his lover, his about-to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. At times both hilarious and achingly poignant, Falsettos shines an ahead-of-its-time spotlight on the infinite possibilities that make up a modern family … and a beautiful reminder that love can tell a million stories. A hit when it premiered on Broadway in 1992, this ever-relevant show won Tony Awards for its book by James Lapine and William Finn (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) and its score, also by Finn.

In 1920, Russian Jewish writer Isaac Babel starts a diary while wandering the countryside with the Red Cavalry. In 2010, after the crash of an aircraft carrying the Polish president, his diary is discovered among the wreckage. What did Babel write, and why does it matter so much to one ruthless KGB agent destined to become one of the most powerful figures in the world? Describe the Night uncovers the mystery by tracing the stories of seven lost souls connected across decades by history, fiction, lies and blood. Pulitzer Prize-finalist Rajiv Joseph returns to Woolly after hit productions of Guards at the Taj and Gruesome Playground Injuries. This new piece has been described as a “work of major ambition” (The New York Times) that will feel both timeless and tuned in to the age of #FakeNews.
