It sounds like fake news you'd receive in an email from an older relative, but it's true: In November 1963, Laura Bush, the future First Lady, blew through a stop sign and killed a high school friend. That fact becomes the basis for a wildly speculative tale of murder, intrigue and world power in "Laura Bush Killed a Guy", a smart, surreal and surprising reexamination of the Bush years. "The Washington Post" calls it "a delectably wicked satire." See this one-woman show starring Lisa Hodsoll at Caos on F in Washington, D.C. [less-]

Brimming with poetic language and emotional longing, Tennessee Williams' memory play "The Glass Menagerie" is rightly considered a true classic, a work that's lost none of its power over the generations. Set in a Depression-era St. Louis tenement, aspiring poet Tom struggles with a mind-numbing job and a smothering home life. His overbearing mother, a former Southern belle, constantly pushes her son to bring home "gentleman callers" for his painfully shy sister Laura, whose collection of glass animals means everything to her. But when Tom finally produces a male visitor, the guest's presence sends shock waves through the family -- and the fragile fantasy world they've built may be irreparably shattered. Experience this moving, beautiful production at the Parlor Room Theater. [less-]

You've never heard the blues quite like Corky Siegel's Chamber Blues cranks it out. Siegel, a harmonica-slinging blues master, howls over the surprising accompaniment of a string quartet. The band leader's sonic experiment began in 1966 when acclaimed classical Maestro Seiji Ozawa approached the blues artist and suggested a collaboration. Guiding the blues of Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters out of the smoky cavern of Big John's and onto the stages of the Chicago Symphony and beyond, this harmonica-playing mad scientist has the tuxedo-and-gown crowd on its feet, clamoring for more of his blues-classical alchemy.
