Bethesda’s Round House Theatre has staked its claim as the area’s premiere space for new stuff in the 2017-2018 season. That season — Round House’s 40th — will feature one world premiere, one American premiere, two regional premieres, and what Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote before he wrote Hamilton.
Olney Theatre’s 2017-2018 season will include early works by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ayad Akhtar, co-productions with Round House and Everyman theaters, and a return of the Hypocrites in a production schedule with more choices than some cities get in a year, the company announced.
Synetic Theater, a DC area company known nationwide for its movement-based productions, will be taking a two-toned approach to its 2017-2018 season. The 2017 portion will be full of light-dappled, kid-friendly stories. Things get dark quick in 2018, though.
