After a bad health scare, Octavia decides to put off her troubles and blow off some serious steam with her friends June and Imani. Will one last epic night on the town -- a true test of their friendship full of outrageous, absurd encounters -- lead to epiphany or disaster? "BLKS" is a “raw, blistering, hilarious, and engaging” ("Chicago Sun-Times") new work that responds to a number of cultural icons, from Lena Dunham to Jerry Seinfeld to August Wilson. Poet and playwright Aziza Barnes’ new play paints a miraculous portrait of a day in the life of three 20-something black women wrestling with love, uncomfortable truths, and the anguish of adulting in New York City.

This Tony Award-nominated show is an intoxicating musical fable filled with humor, heart and the extraordinary music of three-time Grammy Award winner Keb’Mo’. In a small Alabama town, a mysterious blues guitar-playing stranger named Marvell Thunder arrives at the door of the Dupree family and brings a challenge for the offspring of late Jaguar Dupree, the only man who ever outplayed him in a "cutting contest." Thunder offers Glory Dupree, Jaguar’s blind daughter, a Faustian bargain: if he wins the contest he gets Jaguar’s guitar, and if she wins she gets her sight back. In 2013, "Thunder Knocking on the Door" brought the house down at every performance. Creative Cauldron couldn’t resist the urge to turn the cauldron into a “juke joint” once again and bring this crowd-pleasing musical back to life for its 10th anniversary. [less-]

Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Big Apple Circus, where you can "ooh!" and "ahh!" at some of the world's most celebrated circus acts in the most intimate setting. You'll be sitting ringside with your eyes trained on the skies as 10-time world record holder Nik Wallenda launches into his signature daring feats. Hailed as "The King of the High Wire," he'll lead his Fabulous Wallendas through unforgettable aerial stunts like the seven-man pyramid. Trapeze artists will leave you gulping and clowns will keep you laughing when this Big Top bonanza comes to the Washington, D.C. area. Like seeing real-life superheroes in action, Big Apple Circus' latest show brings together some of the world's top circus acts and sets them lose in an intimate one-ring setting. What in the world could the impossible-sounding horizontal juggling be? Find out when Victor Moiseev debuts the dazzling feat for American audiences at National Harbor. What would it look like if Superman and Wonder Woman danced? Maybe something like the poetic aerial choreography of Desire in Flight. Is it possible for a person to pull off four somersaults midair "and" time it so perfectly that another guy dangling upside down on a swing can catch him? Just watch the Flying Tunizianis. Throw in beautiful horses, trick-performing dogs and hilarious clowns, and you've got one jaw-dropping, fun-filled show for the whole family. [less-]

Is there a more goosebump-raising romantic song than Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova's "Falling Slowly?" You might say yes, but then you might have to come to blows to defend that position against the song's legion of devotees.

"Once" the musical is a poignant ode to love, longing and the power of art, and now it comes to the stage at Olney Theatre Center.

Find out what's really in the mind of Mencia when popular comedian and entertainer Carlos Mencia performs at Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse. His hit Comedy Central series was one of the highest rated programs on the channel, second only to "South Park". He's had his own TV specials and was featured in a Super Bowl commercial for Bud Light. His career has seen its share of ups and downs, and he's emerged from it all a leaner (but not meaner) entertainer. Undoubtedly one of today's most popular entertainers and comics, Mencia demonstrates an extraordinary ability to connect with a wide and diverse audience, whether it's man-on-the-street interviews, studio comedy, commercial parodies, nationwide sold-out tours or films.

"Three Sistahs" is an intimate musical that exposes the souls of three strong, independent women as they gather together in the family home one last time. They reflect on the past, present and their hope for the future with powerful music and insights about their lives and relationships. A musical tapestry of gospel, rhythm and blues, bebop and funk, it is a hauntingly beautiful score by William Hubbard with lyrics by Thomas W. Jones II.

Forced into exile for political reasons, Spain’s renowned philosopher Miguel de Unamuno confronts a young fisherman, a general, and a journalist about their beliefs regarding freedom, reason and faith while he plans his escape from the island of Fuerteventura. Based on historic events, this new play explores conflicting loyalties to one’s country and one’s morality in the battle for a just society. Given the rise of nationalism in the world today, questions of truth, freedom of speech and political liberty have greater resonance.
