The year is 2063 and Thom Valentine, the first openly gay president of the United States, faces a host of problems -- from an imminent civil war to the threat of an African invasion to an adulterous First Gentleman. To make matters worse, there are zombies in the basement of the White House! From the warped imagination of playwright-in-residence Robert O' Hara comes "Zombie: The American", a sci-fi thriller about a young Commander-in-Chief searching for the strength to hold our union together. With his power, his marriage and the nation's well-being at stake, Valentine must decide what he cares most about saving ... and at what cost. O'Hara describes his gory political satire as "a cross between Jacobean tragedy and "Dr. Strangelove". The world premiere of this dystopian cautionary tale hits the stage at D.C.'s Woolly Mammoth Theatre. [less-]

There is probably no more dangerous -- or fascinating -- place to visit than the mind of Franz Kafka. From deep within its subterranean reaches, the most terrifying and prophetic images of modern literature have come crawling out. And yet it's into this no-mans-land that "The Trap", the fearless drama from Tadeusz Różewicz, dares to venture. A stunning collage of events, images and sounds that haunted the artist, "The Trap" is not only a psychological portrait, it is also Różewicz's unique vision of Kafka's destiny. For the playwright alters time and space to transport Kafka (who died in 1924) to the 20th century's ultimate nightmare: the Holocaust. Join the Ambassador Theater's team in rediscovering Kafka in all his awesome strangeness thanks to this powerfully imaginative piece from a legend of avant garde theater. [less-]

Latino music has already proven it can captivate all sorts of audiences and musicians.

British playwright Robert Bolt's "A Man for All Seasons" was a critical and commercial hit on the Broadway stage in the 1960s, eventually spawning an Oscar-winning feature film that's considered a classic of the silver screen. The story centers around the true story of Sir Thomas More, the 16th-century Lord Chancellor of England, who refused to sign a letter asking Pope Clement VII to annul King Henry VIII's marriage to Catherine of Aragon, and who later resigned rather than take an Oath of Supremacy declaring Henry VIII the Supreme Head of the Church of England. Bolt's brilliant drama about conscience and belief portrays More as a tragic hero, motivated by his devout Roman Catholic faith and envied by his rivals, deeply loved by his family and respected by the common people.

It's 1931 in the Soviet Union and things are not what they seem. In the critically acclaimed play "The Letters", a ministry director calls employee Anna into his office for a job-related interview. But the director seems to have some sort of hidden agenda. Is he offering Anna a promotion? Is he making a sexual advance? Or is Anna in fact harboring a hidden agenda of her own? A deftly structured cat-and-mouse thriller, "The Letters", written by John W. Lowell, is based on the real-life story of the Soviets struggling to edit the sexually explicit letters of Tchaikovsky. Hailed by "The Huffington Post" as "a pitch perfect ... masterful tale, masterfully told," "The Letters" now comes to Alexandria's MetroStage, starring Susan Lynskey and Michael Russotto. [less-]

Money, sex and Photoshop are all front-page news in the provocative "NSFW" (Not Safe for Work), coming to Bethesda's Round House Theatre. This biting comedy by award-winning British playwright Lucy Kirkwood takes a hard look at privacy in the media and the ways in which magazines objectify women. When Aiden, editor of the fictional "Doghouse" men's magazine, charges his team of journalists with finding an amateur model for a racy photo spread, he can't foresee the trouble it will bring. What unfolds is an unseemly look at the underbelly of both men's "and" women's newsstand fare. Praised by "The Telegraph" as "richly absorbing and inventive," "NSFW" is a sharp, funny and timely play that may just have you thinking twice about what's on your coffee table. [less-]

Boris Eifman, known as the bad boy of Russian ballet, brings his St. Petersburg-based contemporary dance ensemble to the Kennedy Center for a performance of 2011's "Rodin". One of Eifman's signature dance-theater pieces, this full-length work is based on the tragic true love story of the famed French sculptor Auguste Rodin, best known for "The Thinker", and his mistress-muse Camille Claudel. Pieces by Ravel, Saint-Saëns and Massenet provide the score for this intense romance that pulses with artistic jealousy. The "Los Angeles Times" calls Eifman's creations "theatrical, visionary works that delve into characters' lives in the most exciting, probing, titillating, and wondrous ways," and his company continues to combine the discipline of traditional Russian ballet with a contemporary dramatic flair in their dynamic, modern productions.
