"This play is not about my mother and me." So begins this autobiographical play by Lisa Kron, the Tony Award-winning writer and lyricist best known for her Broadway hit "Fun Home". Despite Kron's claim at the beginning of the play, "Well" delves deep into the relationship between Kron and her chronically ill, semi-invalid mother. As Kron tries to share stories from her upbringing with the audience, her mother and other characters from her past routinely break character to correct Lisa's version of events and chat with her mother about her life. This tragicomic, self-referential journey is coming to the 1st Stage Theater in Tysons. [less-]

Chris Redd may have started his career wanting to be a hip-hop artist, but his knack for stand-up and sketch comedy pulled him in a different direction -- a win for anyone lucky enough to see him perform.

He's also been a regular on Fox's "Empire" and worked with Tina Fey on the ABC pilot "Family Fortune".

The "Evil Dead" series of cult movies returns to life as a triumphant (and gory) stage production at Theatre on the Run in Arlington, combining all the campy fun of the movies with the added bonus of being set to music.

This is a 4D experience -- meaning the front seats are the designated "Splatter Zone." And even though general admission tickets are outside the zone, the guts and gore will be flying unpredictably, so keep that in mind when choosing. [less-]

Alfred Uhry's Tony Award-winning "Parade" dramatizes the racially-charged trial of Leo Frank, a Jewish factory manager wrongly accused of brutally raping and murdering a 13-year-old worker under his charge. As press whips the public into an outraged frenzy, Frank's only hope lies in a brave crusade for justice led by the Southern wife he never understood, among a people that never understood him. This transformational story -- based on an actual case -- is part murder mystery and part social commentary about a country whose behavior is often at odds with its declarations of equality.

In 2014, the Washington Stage Guild set out on a ambitious multiyear quest to produce George Bernard Shaw's five-part 1922 play cycle, "Back to Methuselah". And as their 30th anniversary season comes to a climax, so does their monumental undertaking. One of the very first works of science fiction-fantasy ever to appear in a theater, these rarely-seen plays by the Nobel Prize-winning satirist ("Pygmalion, Major Barbara, Saint Joan"), start with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and conclude here in the year 31,920 AD, as mankind has evolved towards immortality. "As Far as Thought Can Reach" posits a world where a group of youngsters learn some lessons of life -- and the afterlife -- from the "Ancients." Catch up on the entire "Methuselah Project" at DC's Undercroft Theatre, with a series of readings and related events. [less-]

Award-winning playwright and director Aaron Posner has taken Chekhov's "Three Sisters" and removed one seemingly vital element from the Russian classic: "the sisters". Instead, his aptly titled "No Sisters" explores the screwed-up, endlessly fascinating psyches of a different set of world-weary misfits and broken dreamers in the Chekhov universe. Because while Olga, Masha and Irina yearn for Moscow, the rest of the household and its hangers-on are grappling with their own heartache and longing, bit players in a world whose focus is elsewhere. Commissioned as a part of Studio R&D, Studio Theatre's new works initiative, "No Sisters" is an endlessly inventive and wildly funny play -- about some wildly unhappy people. [less-]

A casual bet between Professor Henry Higgins and a friend sets the snobbish professor on a path that will change his life forever. Higgins bets he can take a grubby Cockney flower girl and transform her into a lady that can fit in at any upper crust party. But Higgins doesn't count on his "creation" having a mind of her own. George Bernard Shaw's most popular play, "Pygmalion", is perhaps more widely known as the inspiration for the musical "My Fair Lady". This witty tale from the master playwright both delighted and scandalized audiences in 1912, and this fresh interpretation at the Kensington Town Hall remains a great battle-of-the-sexes and social-class comedy.
