Genius. Fearless. Absolutely fun. Flying V Fights: The Secret History of the Unknown World is a pop culture junkie’s wet dream. And, given the violence, skin, and sexual innuendos, there’s no better way to describe it.
The Mushroom Kingdom is in a tizzy. It’s perennial hero (and everyone’s favorite Italian plumber), Mario, no longer finds satisfaction in running, leaping, and rescuing, in facing his spiked, fire breathing nemesis, Bowser, in taking Princess Peach’s hand in his and riding off into the sunset, after a slice of cake.

We took suggested lines spoken or sung on our area stages in 2016 or upcoming in 2017 and paired them with images to create this year’s Love Lines for Valentines.

I’m sure someone did the calculations on viewership and setup cost and it didn’t work out, but that doesn’t mean that one still can’t […]
David S. Kessler, an avid, area-wide theatergoer who this year broke through the other side of the stage by writing, producing and performing Wombat Drool at Capital Fringe, is the recipient of the 2015 Gary Lee Maker Award for outstanding audience member, DC Theatre Scene editor Lorraine Treanor announced today.
