You have four choices this weekend at theaters in the Dupont-Logan-U Street area:

  • Entering its second weekend at the Source Theater on 14th Street is a production by The In Series. The theater group is billing the show as “a double bill of American ‘pocket’ opera: Leonard Bernstein’s Trouble In Tahiti and William Bolcom and Arnold Weinstein’s Casino Paradise.” The double production begins at 8 pm and runs through October 2.
  • Something You Did at Theater J offers one performance this weekend: Sunday at 8 pm. Of the show, Theater J says, “A stellar student from a good family, Alison Moulton is serving her 30th year behind bars for an anti-war bombing that resulted in the death of a police officer. Now petitioning for parole…” Theater J is at 16th and Q NW in the DC Jewish Community Center.
  • Circle Mirror Transformation is at the Studio Theatre, 14th and P NW: “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.”
  • You can catch Falsettos on Friday, Saturday or Sunday night at Noi’s Nook at go mama go! on 14th Street NW. It is a production of Ganymede Arts, DC’s LGCT theater company: “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.”
