For a brilliantly good time, call Flying V, who notched up the fun last Friday with The Adult Fan Fiction World Championships. So why are you reading about it here? Because this is a theatre site, and Flying V is a theatre group that produces way more than staged plays, so what the what? Well, […]
Bekah Brunstetter, a North Carolina playwright whose work has frequently graced DC-area stages, will write the book for a Broadway musical version of the Nicholas Sparks’ bestseller, The Notebook, producers Kevin McCollom and Kurt Deutsch announced yesterday.
Local playwright Patrick Flynn has spent the last two years developing his new comedy about growing up and proving how“adults can be idiots, just like children.” Sheila and Moby receives its world premiere in an intriguing and entertaining production by Flying V Theatre, whose motto: ‘Be Awesome’ could have been the rallying cry for young Sheila.
