Last Chance: Closings!

New Shows

Check the listings below for full details.

Keegan Theatre at Church Street at 1742 Church Street NW

  • Laughter on the 23rd Floor  closes February 18: “Inspired by the playwright’s youthful experience as a staff writer on Sid Caesar’s “Your Show of Shows,” this Neil Simon favorite depicts the harried writing staff as they frantically scramble to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of star madman Max Prince.  Filled with nostalgia, classic Catskills humor, and colorful characters, Laughter on the 23rd Floor is bound to have you… well… laughing.” (Keegan Theatre)
  • Twelve Angry Men opens March 3 and runs through March 25: “The gripping examination of twelve jurors as they deliberate after hearing the arguments in a seemingly open-and-shut case. As prejudices are tested and evidence weighed, the entire jury is forced to look past the show of the courtroom to unearth the shocking truth. Faced with playing the hangmen, these dozen men must first face themselves.” (Keegan Theatre)

Lincoln Theatre at 1215 U Street NW

Source at 1835 14th Street NW

  • Blood Wedding from the Constellation Theatre Company runs through March 4: “Lovers are torn apart as two families in rural Spain are intricately bound in an unbreakable cycle of murder and revenge. Experience passion and violence mixed with song and ceremony. Federico García Lorca illuminates our deepest desires with gorgeous poetic imagery and the haunting appearance of a human Moon.” (Constellation Theatre Company)
  • Every Tuesday night at the Source is Harold Night! with the Washington Improv Theater: “Each week is a demonstration, celebration and experiment in the world-famous improv longform, Harold. It starts with an audience suggestion and explores whatever themes emerge through a series of scenes. All of the action is brought to life by WIT’s own Harold Teams right before your eyes.” (WIT)

Studio Theatre at 1501 14th Street NW

  • Time Stands Still  has an extended run through February 19: “This searing drama from Pulitzer-Prize winner Donald Margulies follows an injured photojournalist who returns home from the battlefields of Iraq only to learn that some images can never be erased.” (Studio Theatre)
  • Astro Boy and the God of Comics premieres February 15: “Onstage drawing meets the ’60s dream of the future in this story of Japanese cartoonist Osamu Tezuka and his most famous creation: Astro Boy, a crime-fighting robot.” (Studio Theatre)

Theater J at 1529 16th Street NW

  • **Electile Dysfunction: The Kinsey Sicks For President! (Because Sometimes It’s Hard Being a Republican) runs February 4 through February 19: “Join the Kinsey Sicks at the official launch of their groundbreaking campaign to become the first Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet to win the Republican nomination for President! With an ear attuned to current events, watch the gals try to take America (a)back to a place it never was by out- pandering, out-conspiracy theorizing, and out-outlandishing even the most cynical of the current crop of Presidential candidates, all in glorious, tongue-in-cheek four-part harmony.” (Theater J)
  • New Jerusalem: The Interrogation of Baruch De Spinoza opens February 29 and runs through April 1: “A literate, suspenseful retelling of the story of the 1656 interrogation of philosopher Baruch De Spinoza, New Jerusalem examines the clash between religion and modernity, faith and philosophy–questions that human beings continue to grapple with.” (Theater J)
