The House of Blue Leaves

The House of Blue Leaves
by John Guare

Directed by Matt J. Bannister

July 13 – August 4, 2018
Matinees: July 22 and 29 at 2pm

A brilliant play, beautifully fashioned, sometimes wacky and sometimes sad, combines hilarity, poignancy, outrageousness, and tragedy. A songwriter with visions of glory toils by day as a zookeeper and by night sings at piano bars in Queens, New York, where he lives with his wife. Meanwhile, downstairs lives his mistress. Chaos ensues on one day when the Pope makes his first visit to the city; the songwriter’s soldier son Ronny goes AWOL; an old school chum, now a successful Hollywood producer, shows up with his starlet girlfriend in tow; and a group of nuns all descend on the apartment in this enchanting, zany farce.

Theatre Bloom

Winner of the 1966 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a Tony Award winner, this powerful, beautiful play is filled with humor and compassion and touched with poetry. A wealthy middle-aged couple has their complacency shattered when longtime friends appear at their doorstep claiming an encroaching, nameless “fear” has forced them from their own home. Their arrival sets off a firestorm of doubt, recrimination and ultimately solace, upsetting the “delicate balance.”

by Madeleine George

Produced and directed by Seth Ghitelman

Matinees: April 22 and 29 at 2pm

These four constant companions – Watson, the trusty sidekick to Sherlock Holmes; Watson, the loyal engineer who built Bell’s first telephone; Watson, the unstoppable super-computer that became reigning Jeopardy! champ; and Watson, an amiable techno-dweeb who, in the present day, is just looking for love – become one in this brilliantly witty, time-jumping, loving tribute (and cautionary tale) dedicated to the people — and machines — upon which we all depend.

All in the Timing

All in the Timing
by David Ives

Directed by Rob Gorman

February 23 – March 17, 2018
Matinees: March 4 and 11 at 2pm

“Deliciously good fun” – DC Metro Theatre Arts

“Intellectually stimulating and heartwarmingly amusing.” – Theatre Bloom

This critically acclaimed, award-winning evening of comedies combines wit, intellect, satire and just plain fun in its portrayal of relationships, language, music, a revolutionary and a Philadelphia twilight zone experience.

The six one-acts in this collection include:

“Words, Words, Words”
recalls the philosophical adage that three monkeys typing into infinity will sooner or later produce Hamlet and asks: What would monkeys talk about at their typewriters?

“Variations on the Death of Trotsky”
shows us the Russian revolutionary on the day of his demise, desperately trying to cope with the mountain-climber’s axe he’s discovered in his head.

“The Universal Language”
brings together Dawn, a young woman with a stutter, and Don, the creator and teacher of Unamunda, a wild comic language. Their lesson sends them off into a dazzling display of hysterical verbal pyrotechnics – and of course, true love.

“The Philadelphia”
presents a young man in a restaurant who has fallen into a “Philadelphia,” a metaphysical state in which he cannot get anything he asks for.

“Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread”
is a parodic musical vignette in trademark Glassian style, with the celebrated composer having a moment of existential crisis in a bakery.

“Sure Thing”
Two people meet in a cafe and find their way through a conversational minefield as an offstage bell interrupts their false starts, gaffes and faux pas on the way to falling in love.

“Thought-provoking and full of heart.” – Theatre Bloom
“Definitely worth seeing.” – Maryland Theatre Guide
“Must-see theatre at its best.” – DC Metro Theatre Arts

Winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize, Wit is a remarkable play, both intellectually challenging and emotionally immediate. A renowned professor of English who has spent years studying and teaching the brilliant and difficult metaphysical sonnets of John Donne, has been diagnosed with terminal ovarian cancer. She applies her aggressively probing and intensely rational approach of poetry to her illness and treatment with a profundity and humor that are transformative both for her and the audience.
