Theater J at 1529 16th Street NW
- The History of Invulnerability opens June 6 and runs through July 8: “Behind every great superhero is a determined creator. In 1930s America, that creator was usually a young Jewish man with an active imagination.

Siegel wrestles to retain control of his famous comic book sensation as America is drawn into WWII.” (Theater J)
