Howard Theatre, 620 T Street NW

Keegan Theatre at Church Street, 1742 Church Street NW

  • The Full Monty” opens May 4 and runs through June 1.  The  Americanized musical stage version of the 1997 British film, “The Full Monty” boasts a book by Terrence McNally and a score by David Yazbeck and was nominated for nine Tony awards, including Best Musical, when it shimmied its way onto Broadway in 2000.  Relocated to Buffalo, New York, “The Full Monty” follows group of unemployed steelworkers who are desperately seeking employment and a paycheck to support their families – until they come up with a bold way to make some quick cash. As the guys work through their fears, self-consciousness, feelings of worthlessness and anxieties, they come to discover that not only are they stronger as a group, but that the strength they find in each other gives them the individual courage to face their demons and overcome them. Keegan bares all when this Broadway smash takes the Church Street Stage. (Keegan Theatre)

  • “4000 Miles” opened March 20: “A compassionate and unsentimental drama about the life-changing relationship between a grandson who can’t face his life and a grandmother who is starting to forget hers.” (Studio Theater)
  • Pas De Deux opens April 24. Skin Tight by Gary Henderson and 2-2 Tango by Daniel MacIvor.

Theater J at 1529 16th Street NW

  • “Andy and The Shadows” runs through May 5. “A comedy about family with Freudian hallucinations and pre-marital angst, from Theater J’s Artistic Director and award winning playwright. Zipping from one rite-of-passage (and time period) to the next, Andy Glickstein is the filmmaking son of Holocaust refugees looking back at the wild weekend of his engagement to Sarah — as party plans fall apart; a famous film flop is hilariously re-made; duendé is discovered; and two vulnerable, differently indomitable parents and their pasts become more deeply understood.” (Theater J)
