2. 1776 at The Colonial Players of Annapolis
“…it is a triumph to gather so many talented performers for one production!” -April Forrer, MD Theatre Guide
READ April Forrer’s Review.
Synopsis: The seminal event in American history blazes to life in this wonderful musical. It is the summer of 1776 and congress is ready to declare independence, if only our founding fathers can agree to it. John Adams, Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson alternately woo and rage at their fellow delegates as they wrestle with the details of the Declaration and what it will mean to their individual states – their “countries”. Much of the book of this musical is based on actual letters and notes from the convention, more historically accurate than you might think, and the humor, passion and glorious music will make it an indelible history lesson that will fill your heart with pride and joy.
3. God of Carnage at Everyman Theatre
“This is a roller coaster evening of theater not to be missed.” -Lynn Menefee, MD Theatre Guide
READ Lynn Menefee’s review.
Synopsis: From the playwright that brought you ‘Art,’ comes this hilarious 2009 Tony Award Winner for Best Play. Two high-strung couples, Alan and Annette Raleigh and Michael and Veronica Novak, decide to meet one evening for a civilized discussion about a playground altercation between their two young sons. What follows is a comically explosive downhill slide from polite, political correctness to full-on character assassination. The New Yorker called this laugh-out-loud hilarity “ninety minutes of sustained mayhem.” A no holds barred look at relationships between spouses and friends, and what happens when the littlest things end up pushing us completely over the edge…
4. Jason Invisible at The Kennedy Center’s Family Theater

5. A Walk in The Woods at Quotidian Theatre Company
“…definitely worth your time and money.” -Elliot Lanes, MD Theatre Guide
READ Elliot Lane’s review.
Synopsis: Two arms negotiators, a Russian and an American, meet informally after long, frustrating hours at the bargaining table in Geneva. As their talks continue, it is clear that despite their deepening understanding, these two wise and decent men face profound frustration in dealing with the mistrust of both governments. Nearly a quarter of a century after the play was written, it is clear that the theme is timeless.
