"What if...?" It's a question that looms large over many people's lives, speaking of missed opportunities, hope and yearning. It's the question at the center of one of the best-selling novels of the last century, "The Bridges of Madison County", and the critically acclaimed film adaptation. Now, one of the all-time great romances comes to the stage in a Tony-winning musical from composer Jason Robert Brown and Pulitzer winner Marsha Norman. Set in a sleepy Iowa town, the musical follows a bored housewife who finds her life forever changed when she meets a traveling "National Geographic" photographer. What begins as a chance encounter evolves into an exhilarating four-day whirlwind of passion, desire and everlasting love in what's been hailed by "New York Daily News" as "one of Broadway's best in the last decade."

Chicago's most innovative theatre company, The Hypocrites, are back at the DC area's Olney Theatre Center with an encore engagement of their critically-acclaimed, inventively-immersive and family-friendly version of Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance".

But since his birthday falls on Leap Day, he learns he'll be sticking around a lot longer. It's a roller coaster ride of swashbuckling action and merry music, featuring many of Gilbert and Sullivan's wittiest and most engaging tunes, including the immortal "I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General."
