There are two new shows on 14th Street NW this weekend: Circle Mirror Transformation at the Studio Theatre, and Falsettos by ganymede arts, DC’s GLBT theater company.

Circle Mirror Transformation opened Wednesday night and there are performances Wednesday through Sunday each week. Studio Theatre says:

“This charming new play invites the audience into an amateur theatre class in rural Vermont. Theatre games and acting exercises mirror the real drama taking place between the students. The Studio Theatre, founded as an acting conservatory, finds a perfect match with a play about the life lessons stumbled across and relationships forged in acting class.”

Opening this Saturday night… Ganymede arts is producing Falsettos at Noi’s Nook at go mama go!, 1809 14th Street. Scheduled to run through October 10, shows are Thursday through Sunday (no show this Friday):

Falsettos is a universal story of the modern day family. It focuses on a man named Marvin who leaves his wife and young son to live with another man yet ends up alone. Two years later, Marvin is reunited with his lover on the eve of his son’s Bar Mitzvah, just as AIDS is beginning its insidious spread.”
