A shadowy tour of imagined tribes and their marital customs, Christopher Chen draws inspiration from fabulist writer Italo Calvino for his mind-bending work "The Late Wedding". Calvino was known for his sly, dream-like stories "Invisible Cities" and " If on a Winter's Night a Traveler", which Chen uses as a launching pad into an exploration of dislocation and transience in internet-age relationships. Told by shape-shifting narrators, "The Late Wedding" chips away at the mystery of modern relationships and ultimately becomes an insightful journey inward. At once an anthropological tour through marriage customs, a spy thriller and a sci-fi love story, the only thing you can expect from the The Hub Theatre's production of "The Late Wedding" is the unexpected.

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.

In his theatrical masterpiece, "Doubt", John Patrick Shanley beings out the nailbiting suspense and psychological drama lurking within the sheltered walls of a Bronx Catholic school in 1964. This Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play portrays the battle of wills between a strict headmistress and a popular, progressive new priest. Threatened by the priest's charisma and unorthodox ways, the headmistress develops a suspicion that the priest is sexually abusing a student. At first she barrels ahead in her accusations, believing in her own assumptions completely. But as she questions an idealistic young nun and the mother of the alleged victim, the cracks in her resolve appear and her doubts begin to show. This powerful play presents deep questions about the nature of faith, certainty and doubt that will provide food for thought well after the curtain descends. [less-]
