A theater company most terrible is about to stage a murder most foul … no good can come of this. Actually, these wannabe thespians will be lucky to make it through opening night without some real corpses stacking up, because this is The Play That Goes Wrong. And boy, does it. But what’s a chaotic series of mishaps for them makes for “the funniest play Broadway has ever seen” (Huffington Post) and proof that sometimes a show can be so wrong, it’s right. Broadway’s most award-winningest comedy, The Play That Goes Wrong has racked up more laurels than Caesar, conquering stages from Paris to London to Broadway, and now it’s returning to wreak hilarious havoc on New World Stages. See for yourself why Forbes said, “You’ll never have a better time in a theater!”

Take a second and picture your perfect summer escape from the hustle and bustle of D.C. Now, we’re not mind readers, but it’s probably a fair guess that your summer fantasy included cold beer, barbecue and an afternoon of lazy shenanigans on a major body of water. And if that’s the case, you’re in luck — because that fantasy can become a reality on the River Tubing and Brewery Tour. On the day of the trip, your only responsibility is meeting the bus at one of the pickup locations — and after that, all you’ve got to do is take it easy. The bus will whisk you away to a three-hour river tubing experience where you — and your floating cooler, if you want to bring one — will drift down the beautiful Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers. Once you’ve had your fill, hop out of the river for a hearty BBQ lunch, followed by a quick drive over to the award winning Vanish Farmhouse Brewery.

Peter Clemenza and Salvatore Tessio are two longtime foot soldiers of the Corleone crime family, but after more than 40 years of service, upper management changes in the organization and a perceived lack of respect from the incoming generation leads them to wonder if they’re being put out to pasture (or under it).

When three women made the pact of solidarity on their summer road trip, no one ever expected that they would soon become the most legendary outlaws in the country.

With an original Can Can soundtrack featuring the vocal stylings of Seattle’s own Brent Amaker, The Legend of El Dorado showcases performances of original choreography performed by the Can Can Dance Company and a delicious Market-fresh menu.

It all started when Chain Reaction banded together in South Florida and began re-creating the sounds of the American super group, Journey. They wanted to pay special homage to Journey’s best years (1977-1998), when Steve Perry fronted the band. The amazing voice of John D’Agostino, coupled with the exceptional musical talents of four equally sophisticated and experienced musicians soon propelled Chain Reaction to become one of the premier Journey reverence bands of our time. The band strives to re-create the exact sounds and nuances of Journey. Their passion for authenticity and attention to detail go a long way toward ensuring that the audience feels like they’re at a real Journey concert. While the band has enjoyed performing the music of Journey, front man John D’Agostino also loves another American super group, Styx. Turns out the rest of the band are huge Styx fans, too. So they began adding some of Styx’s best tunes to their already expansive repertoire of Journey material. The audience response was so positive, that Forever Styx was eventually added as a separate tribute band. Now you really CAN have it any way you want it: Majesty of Rock performing a Journey/Styx concert extravaganza, Chain Reaction, the ultimate Journey reverence band, or Forever Styx. Take a journey with us back to the days of arena rock at it’s best.

Self-proclaimed love child of Liza Minnelli and Klinger from M*A*S*H, Traci Kanaan was feisty from the get-go: She burned through eight piano teachers before graduating high school. Thank heavens none of them succeeded in curbing the enthusiasm of this gifted performer today known as “The Princess of Parodies.” A stand-out stand-up who also plays a mean piano (or is she a stand-out pianist who tells a mean joke?), Kanaan has won legions of fans with her racy and riotous song parodies. Her performances include a wide spectrum of musical styles including classical music, oldies, rock, country and rap — with frequent detours into the outrageous and comedic. See the Princess live at the Boca Black Box.

Looking around the bright, sunny surf paradise of Hermosa Beach, you’d never guess that these surroundings birthed one of the world’s first hardcore punk bands, whose anti-authoritarian messages and raucous, sometimes destructive live shows would get them blacklisted by the LAPD.

The iconic film Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, starring Spencer Tracy, Sidney Poitier and Katharine Hepburn, premiered in 1967 — just six months after anti-miscegenation laws were struck down by the Supreme Court in Loving v. Virginia. Adapting the piece for the stage in 2013 was a tall order: A lot about modern society had changed, and the film’s mega-stars had long-since passed away. Yet racial tensions continue to divide the country more than 50 years later. Playwright Todd Kreidler was up to the task, though, and managed to bring to the stage a compelling drama that speaks to today’s sensitivities, and even opting for a less certain ending that leaves the door open for conversation around the topic of inter-racial relationships. See Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner through a modern lens at Scottsdale’s Don Bluth Theatre.
