“One of this country’s most original and illuminating writers” ("The New York Times") shines his light on the 15th-century play "Everyman" with startling results. Everybody -- a role assigned each night from a small cast of actors by lottery live on stage -- is a happy person, a free person, a person who believes nothing but the best lies ahead. Then Death comes calling and Everybody must go on the journey of a lifetime. Obie Award winner and MacArthur “Genius” Grant recipient Branden Jacobs-Jenkins ("An Octoroon_) has created an irreverent, rollicking ride that asks deep questions of all who see it. Remixing the archetypal medieval morality play into an explosive experiment of wit and emotion, Everybody “fills the heart in a new and unexpected way” (_The New Yorker"). [less-]

“Here she is, Miss Ghana…” Pretty, popular Paulina longs to hear those words, and she’ll do whatever it takes to seize the crown. But the queen bee of the Aburi Girls Boarding School didn’t count on her reign being threatened. Ericka arrives from America and immediately challenges the ruling class with Western sensibilities and imported beauty products. With hilarity and insight, Jocelyn Bioh’s award-winning comedy dissects how “mean girls” are created — and cured. Fresh off two sold-out, extended Off-Broadway runs, this “ferociously entertaining morality tale” ("Hollywood Reporter") is sure to strike a chord with anyone, anywhere, who has ever been a teenage girl, raised a teenage girl, or met a teenage girl.

August Wilson's classic American drama set in segregated Pittsburgh in the 1950s, "Fences" depicts the life of Troy Maxson, a former Negro League baseball star now scraping by as a sanitation worker. A towering figure facing thwarted aspirations, Troy attempts to assert control in his life through his relationships with his wife and son. But even as he takes responsibility for their safety and well-being, he betrays them each in ways that will forever alter their lives. Part of August Wilson’s 10-play Century Cycle, "Fences" explores the walls we build around ourselves and our loved ones, while also illuminating one family’s struggles in a racist society. Craig Wallace ("A Christmas Carol, Death of a Salesman") and Erika Rose (Mosaic Theater Company's "Queens Girl in Africa", Woolly Mammoth's "An Octoroon") play the roles of Troy and Rose Maxson. The production will be directed by Timothy Douglas, one of the foremost interpreters of Wilson's work. [less-]

The Bronx, 1964. Suspicions surface at a parochial school about a charismatic young priest’s interest in a Catholic school’s first and only Black student. Absent hard proof, Sister Aloysius, the school’s starched and self-assured principal, tries to protect the innocent -- but is she doing God’s work or is her certitude actually pride? Anchored by Studio mainstay Sarah Marshall, "Doubt" is John Patrick Shanley’s masterpiece about faith, ambiguity, and the price of moral conviction. [less-]

The Providence Players present what is considered one of the best murder mysteries ever written. "And Then There Were None" is Agatha Christie’s best-selling masterpiece and acclaimed stage play. Ten strangers, apparently with little in common, are lured by a cryptic invitation to a cliffside mansion on an otherwise deserted island and left stranded there with only two household servants for company. Ten little soldier statues adorn the great room along with a nursery rhyme that describes how each of the ten soldiers dies, “until there were none.” As the guests gather for dinner, an unseen recorded voice accuses each person of hiding a guilty secret. That evening, one of the guests is found murdered by a deadly dose of cyanide. The tension escalates as the guests realize the killer is not only among them but is preparing to strike again… and again… and again. [less-]

Decades after the Civil War had ended, the supposed Reconstruction gave ground to a tide of segregationist policies and politics in the South. As a result, The Great Migration began to turn Northern cities into hubs for rising black culture. Chief among them, of course, was New York City, where the Harlem Renaissance ushered in new waves of powerful black thought, literature, fashion and music. Jazz evolved quickly in this fertile artistic environment, which saw the stride piano of Fats Waller and James P. Johnson, and the bold voicings of Ethel Waters and Billie Holiday—all becoming key catalysts for the United States’ most original music. A century later, the Harlem Renaissance remains a key period of progress in the United States’ slow push for equality—and in the advance of its arts. With "Harlem 100", a collaboration with Harlem’s National Jazz Museum, undeniable showman Michael Mwenso leads his band, the Shakes, through an ecstatic multimedia celebration of that legacy. A refugee of Sierra Leone’s civil war, a teenaged Mwenso caught the attention of James Brown and became a regular guest at his London appearances before he relocated to New York to curate late sets at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at the request of another famous fan, Wynton Marsalis. Those concerts ultimately led to the Shakes, a highly adaptable and endlessly energetic outfit that plays with the zeal of perennial discovery. At The Clarice, they revisit the sights and sounds of the Harlem Renaissance, bringing the songs of Waller, Ellington, Holiday and the like back to life, showing that the force and fun of these standards remain.

As politics continues to infiltrate human rights and social justice issues worldwide, Prince William Little Theatre brings one of the great courtroom dramas of the last century to the stage. This rarely produced but critically praised courtroom drama covers the searing testimony and the difficult moral, ethical and legal issues presented by the less publicized segment of the trials, which focused on the collaboration of German judges with the Nazi regime. "Judgment at Nuremberg" poses several difficult questions: How can indefensible crimes be defended? How does a judge, committed to the law, enforce immoral and vicious crimes against humanity? Why, in the aftermath of WWII, did America pressure the courts to be lenient on the defendants? And, critically, what does America do when our foreign policy interests clash with our stated beliefs in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? In this absorbing and complex drama, a cast of unforgettable characters play out their high stakes game against the backdrop of a looming Cold War, shifting political alliances, and the shocking and vivid memories of the Holocaust and World War II.
