"Charm" offers a peek into the colorful inner-workings of an etiquette class taught by Mama Darleena Andrews, an African-American transgender woman working at an LGBTQ organization known as The Center. Mama attempts to share her rules of proper behavior with an eclectic youth group that counts a Latina transwoman, a cisgendered straight black couple and a gay suburban teen among its ranks. Though her students initially struggle to see how etiquette relates to their daily battles with identity, poverty and prejudice, Mama's powerful love and unapologetic attitude eventually win them over. Inspired by a true story, "Charm" carries a message of peace and dignity, as Mama and her students must ultimately find a new way to respect each other and redefine what "having charm" means. Now, the Atlas Performing Arts Center brings Philip Dawkins' fresh-faced take on sexuality, race and gender identity to Washington, DC. [less-]

Critics have gone crazy for "The Hard Problem", the latest from Tom Stoppard, writer of "Arcadia" and "Shakespeare in Love". Hailed by the "The Daily Mail" as "100 minutes of brilliant brainache," Stoppard's searing drama centers on Hilary, a young psychology researcher at a brain science institute who is haunted by a single theory: If there is nothing but matter, what is consciousness? As Hilary attempts to break down the components of this "hard problem," she finds herself up against her lover (and academic mentor) in a fight to defend the soul, altruism and even religion from modern science. Watch psychology and biology collide in this provocative drama at the Metheny Theatre in Washington, D.C. [less-]

With jokes aimed at both ends of the political spectrum -- and pretty much all of the middle, too -- musical-comedy group The Capitol Steps has been eliciting laughs at democracy's expense since 1981. If you've ever wanted to see Barack Obama sing a show tune, Donald Trump sing a rock song and Vladimir Putin dance shirtless, this is the show for you. The Steps' stage show features numerous song parodies and skits, and the cast even includes some former Congressional staffers, whose firsthand experience helps make the jokes zing that much more. This legendary troupe's recorded more than 30 albums, and their radio specials are featured on NPR stations nationwide four times a year, but there's nothing like experiencing their cutting-edge comedy live at DC's Ronald Reagan Building.

It's September 12th, 2001 and "Recent Tragic Events" checks in on Waverly, a young advertising executive in Minneapolis who's about to venture on an extremely ill-timed blind date. The idea of going out evolves into an evening in, as Waverly becomes increasingly concerned about her twin sister, a New Yorker who's been unaccounted for since 9/11. As the evening unfolds, Waverly and her blind date Andrew realize that they're connected by a succession of bizarre coincidences. Their date is further complicated by visits from her crazy neighbors and Waverly's great-aunt Joyce Carol Oates, who's played by a sock puppet. Filled with whimsy but rooted in tragedy, this comedy is playwright Craig Wright's ("Six Feet Under", "Lost") existential exploration of fate versus free will.
