Every story, new or ancient, bagatelle or work of art…all are tales of human failing…all are tales of love at heart. The Gods love Constellation Theatre Company for spinning their storyteller’s thread into a musical theatre masterpiece production of Elton John & Tim Rice’s Aida. A staggeringly powerful and stunningly beautiful production Directed by Michael J. Bobbitt with Musical Direction by Walter “Bobby” McCoy and Choreography by Tony Thomas II, Constellation’s Aida possesses the grandeur and potency of Broadway’s timeless love story and the daring familiarity of telling such a tremendous story in such an intimate space.
Do you hear that sound? It’s calling to you from the lone, cold hills of Kentucky. It’s calling for you to follow it down to 1st Stage in Tysons to see the rarely produced musical Floyd Collins. Based on the real life story of the caver by the same name, this backwoods folk-style musical with Music and Lyrics by Adam Guettel and Book by Tina Landau makes its return to the Washington DC area for the first time in over a decade.
