Keegan Theatre's decision to punch up the summer season with Noises Off, packed with horseplay and good humor (including quirky double playbills) is as smart as the production itself. Michael Frayn's intentionally self-destructing door slammer features a play-within-a-play being performed very, very badly by an utterly undone troupe of second-rate English thespians, played by an ensemble of first-class Keegan Theatre actors doing a great job at being awful. FOUR STARS. To Aug. 22. Church Street Theater, 1742 Church St. NW. Tickets are $30. Call 703-892-0202 or visit keegantheatre.com.
