this weekend page to stage hits dc

If I were in DC I would be enjoying all the theatrical goodness. Sadly I’ll be up in New York finishing reading assignments for the first day of class. If I were magically able to make it to Page to Stage at the Kennedy Center, I would be sure to see the following:

Saturday – August 30, 2008
2:00 – 4:00 – Bruise Easy – Dan Le’Franc’s drama staged by Catalyst Theatre Company in the South Atrium Foyer (Because Shirley is directing and I had dinner with Dan last week and he’s awesome, and because I do bruise easy)

7:00 – 9:00 – Mimesophobia (Or Before and After) – by Carlos Murillo. A murder mystery directed by Michael Dove – Forum Theatre – North Atrium Foyer
(Because it’s Forum, obviously, and because Carlos is a great playwright and though it hasn’t been officially announced Forum will be producing a play of his later this year)

Sunday – August 31, 2008
4:00 – 6:00 – She Was My Brother – A Zuni transvestite brought to DC in the 19th Century – Salt Lake Acting Co. and Theater Alliance – Family Theater
(Because Caesar is playing the Zuni transvestite and he seems really excited about it and doesn’t it just sound historical and fascinating)

7:30 – 10:00 – Honey Brown Eyes – Stefanie Zadravec’s play of Bosnia in 1992 – Theater J – Terrace Theater
(Because it’s an amazing play and one of the biggest reasons I wish I could be at Theater J this fall)

Monday – September 1, 2008
2:00 – 4:30 – The Playdoh Golem – Shawn Northrip’s klezmer-punk musical – Bouncing Ball Theatrical Productions – Millennium Stage South
(Because it’s the Playdoh freakin’ Golem, and I love it and still have the songs stuck in my head from our reading months ago, and my sister is rocking the house in it)

4:30 – 7:00 – Minotaur – Anna Ziegler’s take on the Theseus myth – Rorschach Theatre – Family Theater
(Because Minotaur’s, Theseus, Rorschach and Anna Ziegler are all super cool)

Depending on mood and energy I would finish up the day by going to either…

7:30 – 10:00 – Staged Readings – New plays by emerging writers – The Inkwell – Opera House Rehearsal Room 1 (Because it’s new plays, from mainly local playwrights)


8:00 – 10:00 – The Rape of Lucrece – part radio play, part rock concert – Taffety Punk Theatre Company – Family Theater
(Because it sounds like fun and Taffety is Helen Hayes Award Winning Punk Theatre awesomeness)
