Few scoundrels are as roguish, charming or hilarious as Tartuffe, an impostor who insinuates himself into the home of Orgon and his family, quickly throwing the entire household into chaos. As Orgon's infatuation with his guest and his phony piety grows, Tartuffe's deception threatens to turn downright destructive in this beloved comic masterpiece. Banned in Paris in 1664, "Tartuffe" is one of Moliere's best loved -- and most clever -- comedies. This production stars Steven Epp, recent winner of a Helen Hayes Award for his work in "The Servant of Two Masters". [less-]

Step into a dream and back in time to experience a vintage circus in a theatrical experience unlike any you've seen before. Drawing inspiration from the art of mime, Happenstance Theater's brilliantly choreographed movements create a kind of visual poetry. At once funny and lyrical, "Impossible! A Happenstance Circus" is a kaleidoscopic homage to classic circus characters and images of the '30s and '40s, a theatrical collage set against a backdrop of hard times. "The Washington Post" called co-artistic director/performer Mark Jaster a "clown extraordinaire and one of the most graceful performers you will ever see on a stage." [less-]

"Once" began as a music-fueled indie film that won the nation's heart in 2006, taking home the Best Original Song Oscar for its haunting love ballad "Falling Slowly." Nine years later, with eight Tony Awards under its belt including Best Musical, the Broadway adaptation of "Once" comes to D.C. with its romantic tale of a downtrodden Dublin street musician and the delightfully quirky Czech woman he meets in a vacuum cleaner repair shop. Their complicated lives make the path to love a rocky one, and they channel their feelings into the music they produce together -- him on guitar, her on piano, two voices harmonizing and setting them free, for a time, from the harsh realities of their lives.

Award-winning choreographer Raphael Xavier takes hip-hop techniques from the street to the stage with "The Unofficial Guide to Audience Watching Performance". The performance piece explodes onto the stage at D.C.'s Dance Place, combining street dance choreography with a conversational monologue that blends spoken word, poetry and rap lyrics written over the course of 20 years. Xavier tells the autobiographical story of an artistic journey defined by sacrifice, passion and transcendence. Presented in collaboration with Hi-ARTS, this performance sets out to support hip-hop as a vibrant urban art and culture movement and to address the socio-political issues relevant to the hip-hop generation.
