Even at a time when charismatic antiheroes rule supreme -- especially on cable TV -- Macbeth stands apart. More underhanded than Frank Underwood, more cunning than Michael Corleone and more desperate than Walter White, the Scottish general-turned-king remains the most enthralling example of ambition run amok and of authentic talent corrupted one compromise at a time. Now the Annapolis Shakespeare Company presents a bold new production of Shakespeare's dark masterpiece. Set in a gloomy world of ghosts and witches, the tragedy's bloody cycle of corruption and betrayal is thrown into motion when the popular King Duncan of Scotland is murdered by Macbeth, his trusted friend. Egged on by his wife, Macbeth goes on to claim his "destiny" ... but at a terrible price. [less-]

It was a pairing so strange it could only be true. "Fetch Clay, Make Man" tells the story of the remarkable relationship between Muhammad Ali and Stepin Fetchit. Set mostly in 1965, Ali -- who until his recent membership into the Nation of Islam was known as Cassius Clay -- is winning both bouts in the boxing ring and arguments about the ability and dignity of African Americans. Meanwhile, the faded Fetchit represents an older, uglier era. Having once made millions playing racist stereotypes on the silver screen in the '20s, '30s and '40s, the truly talented actor is now broke and half-forgotten. Yet, in the days leading up to one of Ali's most anticipated matchups, the prizefighter and the movie star form an unlikely and revealing friendship. [less-]

Pirandello's comedy classic sparkles in a "Mad Men"-era Italian village where scandal is on the tip of everyone's tongue. A wildfire of gossip and speculation breaks out when Signor Ponza and his wife move to town and take up residence in a separate house from his mother-in-law. With no regard for privacy, the community of this Italian village decides they must get the inside scoop. What these snoops discover sends them spinning: tales of love-induced trips to the madhouse, secret letters delivered by a bucket on a rope and pulley and even a case of mistaken identity that's been bottled up for years. All is eventually revealed in this hilarious English-language adaptation of Luigi Pirandello's first play, "Così è (Se Vi Pare)". [less-]

Hedda Gabler is one of the most compelling women in dramatic literature, a modern Medea unafraid to manipulate her husband and friends for her own unpredictable desires. In this new adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's psychological drama, Hedda lives in Washington D.C.'s Georgetown neighborhood during the politically charged '60s. As the play begins, she is returning from a long honeymoon, is already bored by her academic husband and fears a life of tedious convention. But aided and abetted by a predatory cohort, Hedda begins to manipulate the fates of those around her with devastating and tragic consequences. The question of whether Hedda Gabler is a hero, a villain, or merely a victim of being female in a double-standard society has fascinated audiences for more than a century. Seek the answer yourself at this contemporary production from Quotidian Theatre Company. [less-]

"Love is merely a madness" in this romantic comedy featuring thwarted lovers, a clown and women disguised as men.

Internationally acclaimed Shakespearean director Michael Attenborough, whose only previous U.S. work has been in New York, selected "As You Like It" for his much-anticipated American regional debut, as he regards the play as "very personal and warm spirited."

Shakespeare's whimsical tale of romance, mischief and magic is updated via a new setting: New York City at the height of the Great Depression. The story follows four young lovers -- all the teenaged offspring of mob bosses -- as they flee to Central Park to escape the watchful eyes of their fathers' henchmen. In the park's shantytown, they encounter Oberon, king of the fairies and a gambler who's fallen on hard times, along with his queen, Titania, an out-of-work actress. When a group of lower-class craftsmen rehearsing a play there also gets caught up in the madness, a comical snarl of spells grows and seems impossible to sort out. But with fairies and sprites all around, it just takes a little more magic and, as Puck puts it, "all is mended." [less-]

The charismatic, but completely broke, salesman Elmer Gantry stumbles upon a struggling religious tour, led by pious evangelist Sister Sharon Falconer.

However, inspired by Falconer's earnestness and his reawakened spirit, Gantry inserts one spectacle too many and risks blowing up the entire operation. [less-]

"Grounded" redefines what it means to be an office "drone" in the 21st century. In this award-winning play from George Brant ("Elephant's Graveyard", "The Royal Historian of Oz"), an unexpected pregnancy clips the wings of a hotshot female F-16 pilot. Reassigned to flying remote-controlled drones over Afghanistan, the "Pilot" leads a surreal double existence. By day, she hunts terrorists remotely from an air-conditioned trailer near Las Vegas. At night, she comes face-to-face with her duties as a wife and mother. "Grounded" transforms the "work-life balance" debate into a matter of life and death in the digital age. This Everyman Theatre production stars Megan Anderson in a performance that the "Baltimore Sun" raves is "a brilliant tour de force." [less-]
