The volatile mix of racial tensions, inequality and crime come to a head in this evening of timely one-act dramas from The American Century Theater. David Mamet conceived the story of "Cops", which was brought to life by acclaimed playwright Terry Curtis Fox, and is one of the most intense shows TACT has produced. "Cops" is an intense, real-time portrayal of a bloody hostage showdown between police and a fugitive in a gritty diner. Then, Pulitzer Prize winner William Saroyan's "Hello Out There" brings you the story of a down-on-his-luck gambler and an unhappy cook who meet and fall in love at the jail where he is locked up. In the hands of one of America's finest writers, the unlikely romance manages to be both hopeful and tragic. In the role of the Young Man, James Orleans Brown nabbed TACT's first Helen Hayes nomination. [less-]

Ford's Theatre presents the world premiere of "The Widow Lincoln", a drama that portrays Mary Todd Lincoln during the weeks following the assassination of her husband -- 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln -- at Ford's Theatre. A woman who was often an object of ridicule due to her perceived sense of entitlement, Mary was perhaps the most controversial First Lady our nation has ever known. But this emotionally wrought portrait portrays a woman mourning the post-war life she and her heroic husband will never be able to share. [less-]

A comedy of misunderstanding that transforms into something much deeper, acclaimed British playwright Terrence Rattigan's "In Praise of Love" explores those times when unkindness is the kindest thing. Based on the real-life relationship between actors Rex Harrison and Kay Kendall, the work delves into a seemingly fractured family whose ties to each other are deeper than any of them realize. Since its debut in London more than 40 years ago, the play has been performed thousands of times, including a Broadway run in which Harrison played the role that was based on him. [less-]

Heated discussion and hearty laughter are sure to result from "Rapture, Blister, Burn" -- Gina Gionfriddo's white-hot new play, which "The New York Times" called "intensely smart and immensely funny." Twice nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, Gionfriddo -- whose recent TV work includes writing for the Emmy-nominated Netflix series "House of Cards" -- has crafted a play that makes audiences howl and critics swoon. "Rapture, Blister, Burn" centers on Catherine, a rockstar feminist academic, who returns home to take care of her elderly mother. There, she encounters an old flame and an "ex" best friend, both of whom seem to be excelling at the kind of conventional life Catherine rejected. But first impressions can be very deceiving. This Round House Theatre production explores how the lives of women have (and have not) changed, presenting a twisted view of feminism ... or feminism with a new twist. [less-]

Redefining the term "vocalist," Marie Daulne (aka, Zap Mama) is more than a singer -- she's a sonic stylist. Over the past 20 years, the internationally-acclaimed Belgian artist has used the organic tone of the human voice to develop a unique sound that bridges jazz, soul and Afro-pop styles. Daulne achieved world renown as the leader of an eponymous all-female vocal polyphonic quintet. She's now collaborating with Brooklyn-based funk and Afrobeat ensemble Antibalas, the band behind the Broadway hit "Fela!".
