5 Things

A happy play, a sad play, a film festival, an MLK, Jr. tribute…that’s what this weekend is all about. Yes, that’s what it’s all about.

The Importance of Being Earnest

Charming bachelors Jack and Algernon lead double lives to woo the two young ladies who have won their hearts. When they are caught in their lies, the stage is set for clever manipulations and hilarious confusion.

The Beauty Queen of Leenane: May you have half an hour in heaven before the devil knows you’re dead.

There’s waking up on the wrong side of the bed, and then there’s waking up on the wrong side of the planet. Unfortunately, this is nearly a daily occurrence in the play, The Beauty Queen of Leenane.

5 Things

It’s Memorial Day weekend, time for us to take a step back from our busy Internet lives, remember those who have fallen in service of their country, and spend some time hanging out.

Henley Street Theatre merges with Richmond Shakespeare

Two of the city’s theatrical companies have announced that they will merge, effective next year.

5 Things

This weekend’s theme is “Drama,” because there are lots of plays and movies to be seen, but also because a festival that hands out “all-you-can-taste” samples of bourbon is bound to generate some interesting moments.

Review: Lord of the Flies

Ahh, Lord of the Flies: everyone’s favorite romantic comedy. Opening night is January 28th and the play runs through February 25th, which makes it an excellent date night for all you lovers out there.

5 Things

This weekend we have the wisdom of the Dude, a classic tale of school boys gone cray-cray, Robert Redford makes the assassination of Abe Lincoln even more interesting than we thought it could be, plus more!
