For everyone you know who says they don’t go to theatre because it’s too expensive – pass this along. This week, two of the shows which our critics think you should see had a top ticket price of just $10.
Hunter Styles writing about Taffety Punk’s version of Twelfth Night: “You’ll groove to the music as Sir Toby Belch and Feste rock out on ukulele and electric guitar! You’ll hold your breath during Malvolio’s scuba diving scene! You’ll question your sanity as you watch a giant remote-controlled inflatable clownfish flying slowly around the set before exiting stage right!”
At the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, 545 7th Street SE in DC. Buy online, or pay at the door.
Rosalind Lacy on Flying V’s The Pirate Laureate of Port Town: “With echoes of The Hunger Games, the characters in The Pirate Laureate engage in a hilarious battle of pens, initiated by Aurora’s cry of: ‘Let the pre-eminent poet prevail.’ Every good swashbuckler knows a sharp comeback is like being hit with the tip of a sword. And the tip of a hat goes to Jonathan Ezra Rubin for his fight choreography that reinforces with physicality the war of wits that follows.” At The Writer’s Center, 4508 Walsh Street, Bethesda, MD.
