Cabaret

Welcome to the Kit Kat Klub. One of the most famous American musicals of all time, Cabaret takes us to the seedy underground of 1929 Berlin during the twilight of the Jazz Age. Hit songs include “Wilkommen”, “Don’t Tell Mama,” “Maybe This Time” and, of course, the title song, “Cabaret.”

Pride and Prejudice

Bold, surprising, boisterous, and timely, this P&P for a new era explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life. Playwright Kate Hamill imbues hilarious new life into this classic love story with a decidedly progressive take on the trials and travails of Elizabeth Bennet, Mr. Darcy, and of course the delightful Bennet clan! Literature’s greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life than it does in this effervescent adaptation.

SPECIAL OFFERING Oct 11- 13, 2024: Washington Center Mainstage
