Grease!
Photo by Dan Norman
Need an escape from 2017? Then Grease is the Word! Harken back to the ’50s, rock ’n roll, high school days, raging hormones and fun times. Great songs, outfits and a whole lot of attitude. Truly a great night to be had by all.
Through October 28

***Sunday in the Park with George
Inspired by Georges Seurat’s famous painting, this dazzling musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, two of the greatest musical theater artists of our time, merges past and present into a poignant and sophisticated exploration of what it takes, and what it costs, to be an artist. George is an obsessive painter who risks it all, including his relationship with his lover Dot, to complete his latest masterpiece. A century later, George’s great-grandson is working as an artist in New York City. In search of inspiration, he soon discovers that the answer to his future is painted clearly in his past.
Through August 20

***Native Gardens
You can’t choose your neighbors. In this brilliant new comedy, cultures and gardens clash, turning well-intentioned neighbors into feuding enemies. Pablo, a rising attorney, and doctoral candidate Tania, his very pregnant wife, have just purchased a home next to Frank and Virginia, a well-established D.C. couple with a prize-worthy English garden. But an impending barbeque for Pablo’s colleagues and a delicate disagreement over a long-standing fence line soon spirals into an all-out border dispute, exposing both couples’ notions of race, taste, class and privilege.
