In this witty and touching comedy, Ella, a psychotherapist and single mother of an autistic child, gets a visit from a new, desperate patient: God. Despite His immense power, He fears He’s accrued too much and is now powerless to save the world from itself. Perhaps a global do-over is in order. Meanwhile, Ella is experiencing her own challenges, including her belief in a higher power. How can these two help each other? With a clash of biblical quotes framed by a modern-day wit, "Oh, God" forces us to confront our own faith, hubris, and the power of humility. [less-]

Though set in the Midwest in the 1930s, there is nothing "depressing" about this fresh take on this classic tale of redemption. St. Louis is mighty cold in December, especially when there’s not enough food to go around. Times are hard. People are out of work, losing their homes, their families, and many lose hope. A Shakespearean actor and his manager run out of gas, and the townsfolk agree to supply them with some if they tell them the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim. Hope is born as the town jumps in as Dickensian characters amid bluegrass music and the redemptive spirit inspired by this timeless tale. The Providence Players’ depression-era adaptation of the Charles Dickens’ classic truly brings this story to life and the tale is presented as a fundraiser for the Young Hearts, a group of amazing teens who raise funds to battle blood cancers and other diseases.

Take a hilarious hit movie, add in some seriously impressive song-and-dance numbers, and tie a big Broadway bow around it, and you've got the sweet family treat known as "Elf The Musical". Fasten your sleigh belts for a fun ride that follows the story of Buddy, who as a little boy mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole, where he's raised as an elf. He grows up unaware that he's an actual human, but his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities eventually force him to face the truth. With Santa's permission, Buddy sets off on a journey to New York to find his birth father, discover his true identity and help the city remember the true meaning of Christmas -- and this sparkling holiday show, coming to the stage of the Olney Theatre Center - Mainstage, will no doubt do the same for you and yours.

Long before Carole King became a chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, a girl from Brooklyn. Beloved for penning such classics as "You've Got a Friend" and "I Feel the Earth Move," she fought her way into the record business as a teenager and ultimately flourished, writing hits for some of the biggest acts in rock 'n' roll. But it wasn't until her personal life began to crack that she finally found her true voice, writing and performing the soundtrack to a generation. "Beautiful" is the inspiring true story of King's remarkable rise to stardom, from part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. It's no surprise that "Beautiful - The Carole King Musical" won a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album of 2015. A resounding success on Broadway, this unforgettable show now comes to Washington, D.C.'s National Theatre. [less-]

Dubbed both "sweet and cheerfully profane" by "The Washington Post", "An Irish Carol" returns to the Keegan Theatre for its much-anticipated annual holiday visit. Written by Emerald Isle native and Keegan company member Matthew J. Keenan, the play follows one evening in the life of David, a wealthy Dublin pub owner who's lost touch with his own humanity in the interest of self-protection and material success.

A modern fable told with all the biting humor and incisive candor of its Irish playwright, this gritty twist on Dickens' classic is a D.C. tradition that has played to sold-out audiences for years.
