Walter Cronkite is Dead at Signature Theatre

Walter Cronkite

The hysterically funny Walter Cronkite is Dead takes place here in Washington, where two women — representing red state vs. blue state — have been stranded in an airport bar because storms have grounded airplanes up and down the East Coast. Joe Calarco’s play is far more than a tale of opposites in close quarters and its comedy does not seek to make an imbecile of either woman. Instead, Cronkite expertly unspools two very different stories not to pick at where they conflict, but instead to lay bare where they closely align. This world premiere show has found a great home at Signature Theatre and two phenomenal talents (Nancy Robinette and Sherri L. Edelen) to bring it vibrantly to life. To Dec. 26. Signature Theatre, 4200 Campbell Ave., Arlington. Tickets $50 to $76. Call 703-820-9771 or visit (Tom Avila)
