In this world premiere, up-and-coming playwright Meg Miroshnik adapts the 18th century French comedy "Double Inconstancy" with some zany and anachronistic 21st century touches. "Fickle: A Fancy French Farce" centers on lowly peasant Harlequin, who is heartbroken when his fiancée is kidnapped by a scheming Prince. One of the Prince's underlings befriends Harlequin and hatches a plan to separate the Prince from his newly captured lover -- and what ensues is a freewheeling comic romp involving disguises, palace intrigue and improbable romance. Be one of the first to see "Fickle: A Fancy French Farce" when it comes to the Olney Theatre Center in Washington, D.C. [less-]

Set against the dramatic backdrop of political and social upheaval in 1963 Louisiana, "Caroline, or Change" is a Tony-nominated musical that features one of the most powerful female leads in the history of musical theater. The play follows the Gellman family and their hard-working African-American maid, Caroline, a single mother of four young children. When a small amount of money goes missing, buried tensions threaten to rip two families -- and the struggling Caroline -- apart. Loosely based on Tony Kushner's provocative and personal story, "Caroline" features a virtuosic score from Jeanine Tesori (Tony Award for Best Original Score for "Fun Home") that blends blues, gospel and traditional Jewish melodies into a magical, show-stopping musical masterpiece. Bethesda's Round House Theatre welcomes this riveting story about the fragility of the human spirit. [less-]

The Queen is dead. Long live the King! Hailed as 2015's best new Broadway play by "Time", "Entertainment Weekly" and "The New Times", and winner of the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Play, Mike Bartlett's "King Charles III" explores the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of Britain's democracy and the conscience of its most famous family. This modern-day riff on Shakespearean political drama, which was a sold-out hit both on Broadway and in London's West End, has been hailed as "fresh, thrilling and fearlessly comic" ("Entertainment Weekly") and "flat-out brilliant!" ("The New York Times"). Set shortly after the death of the Queen, the story centers on Prince Charles, who after a lifetime of waiting is finally made king -- only to face an ethical dilemma over a bill limiting the freedom of the press.

While rapper Juicy J has attracted millions of new fans in recent years thanks to his collaborations with Katy Perry (on the No. 1 hit "Dark Horse"), Nicki Minaj ("Low") and Wiz Khalifa ("For Everybody"), pre-millennial music fans have long revered this icon of Southern hip-hop. Bursting onto the scene as a part of gangsta rap group Three 6 Mafia, he eventually scored both a Grammy and an Oscar with the group for their massive hit "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" from the film "Hustle & Flow". But merely relocating hip-hop's center of gravity to Memphis wasn't enough for the artist, whose solo career similarly took his bass-heavy beats and energetic, often wisecracking rhymes straight to the top of the Top 40 charts. His third solo effort, 2013's "Star Trippy", made it to the No. 2 spot on "Billboard"'s U.S. Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart with a guest lineup that included Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown, Wale and The Weekend. Be there when this Three 6 mafioso, rap elder statesman and current pop chart-topper rocks the mic at The Fillmore Silver Spring. Rapper Belly opens the show. [less-]

From Sarah Treem, the writer-producer of "House of Cards", comes this smart and compelling play about science, family and the survival of the fittest. In "The How and the Why", two women -- Zelda and Rachel -- meet for the first time on the eve of a national conference. Both are brilliant evolutionary biologists who share a passion for science and a contrarian approach to their male-dominated field, but when the young scholar challenges the older woman's theory about the way people regard sex, mysteries about their relationship begin to unfold. This engaging production offers differing views on evolution, feminism and generational divides in modern America -- and it will likely keep you talking long after it's over. "The How and the Why" is coming to Theater J at the Edlavitch Jewish Community Center in Washington, D.C. [less-]

D.C. legend E. Faye Bulter (Arena Stage's "Oklahoma!") joins "Phantom" alum David Benoit for the macabre murder musical of the millennium! Sondheim is at his bloody best in "Sweeney Todd", his musical masterpiece about a barbaric barber and the beastly baker with whom he strikes a sinister partnership. Set in 19th century England, the musical tells the tale of the Todd, who, after being banished from his city on false charges, returns to exact his revenge. Teaming up with local pie shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett, Todd opens a barbershop, where he slits the throats of customers -- and she then bakes their bodies into pies to dispose of the evidence. A legendary smash in its 1979 debut, this darkly comic show won eight Tony Awards, and "The New York Times" gushed, "Sondheim's most ravishing score. One helluva show!" Now "Sweeney Todd" swings his signature blade on the Olney Theatre Center stage. [less-]

Award-winning playwright and director Aaron Posner has taken Chekhov's "Three Sisters" and removed one seemingly vital element from the Russian classic: "the sisters". Instead, his aptly titled "No Sisters" explores the screwed-up, endlessly fascinating psyches of a different set of world-weary misfits and broken dreamers in the Chekhov universe. Because while Olga, Masha, and Irina yearn for Moscow, the rest of the household and its hangers-on are grappling with their own heartache and longing, bit players in a world whose focus is elsewhere. Commissioned as a part of Studio R&D, Studio Theatre's new works initiative, "No Sisters" is an endlessly inventive and wildly funny play -- about some wildly unhappy people. [less-]

A stage littered with liquor bottles and café chairs transforms from a Parisian bistro to the banks of the Irati River in Spain. A bar table roars to life and charges a matador. Championed by "The New York Times" as "a lively riff on Hemingway's first and greatest novel," "The Select (The Sun Also Rises)"'s innovative staging reimagines the 1926 roman à clef via a fusion of artistic forms. As the story winds its way through France and Spain and lands in the heart of the Festival of San Fermín in Pamplona, Hemingway's narrator carries the heavy burdens of a war injury and his inability to have the woman he desires -- a woman whose romantic escapades he follows with bemused but painful fatalism.
