- Cabaret opens January 26 and runs through February 23: Step into the Kit Kat Klub, a place teeming with seedy nightlife on the eve of Hitler’s rise to power in Weimar Germany. This eight-time Tony Award-winning musical classic, based on Christopher Isherwood’s BERLIN STORIES, depicts the interlocking stories of a cabaret singer, a writer from America, and the denizens of Berlin, all caught up in the swirling maelstrom of a changing society. Led by the enigmatic Emcee, allow the denizens of Berlin to entertain you with “Don’t Tell Mama,” “Maybe This Time,” and of course “Cabaret”. (Keegan Theatre)

- An Iliad, opened December 21, “First sung around a campfire 2,800 years ago, The Iliad remains a soaring ode about humanity’s seemingly timeless attraction to violence and destruction. In this theatrical telling, a storyteller grapples with the mythology, brutality, and humanity of Homer’s epic poem. An intimate and immediate look at rage, grief, and the heroism and horror of a seemingly endless war.” (Studio Theater)
- Contractions opened January 2. “Emma’s boss is concerned that she is in breach of contract. An office romance is dissected over a series of increasingly bizarre meetings in this ink-black satire from one of Britain’s most provocative writers.” (Studio Theater)
- The Motherfucker with the Hat opens January 30, “Jackie, out on parole and newly sober, is determined to start anew with his childhood sweetheart Veronica, but her unrelenting coke addiction, his slick-talking AA sponsor, and the discovery of another man’s hat in his living room all threaten to derail Jackie’s tenuous progress. With passion, profanity, and genuine vulnerability, Jackie and Veronica untangle their decades of codependence as they wrestle with the painful limitations of trust, desire, and rehabilitation.” (Studio Theater)
Theater J at 1529 16th Street NW
- Boged (Traitor): An Enemy Of The People, opens January 12 and runs through February 3. “A sudden chemical leak in an Israeli industrial park endangers the region’s water supply. The mayor is quick to cover up the scandal, but his brother fights to expose the truth. The family feud quickly turns into a political war with major environmental repercussions. Emerging from Israel’s social justice movement of the past year, this timely adaptation of Ibsen’s play is the brain child of the Israeli playwright and adapter of Ghassan Kanafani’s Return to Haifa.
Performed at Georgetown University’s Davis Performing Arts Center, in the Gonda Theatre
