RHT's Silver Spring Series
All the King's Men: Broken Ballads with a Stiff Upper Lip
With Will Gartshore
Presented as part of Round House’s Silver Spring Series
Two performances only! March 19 & 26

Round House Theatre Silver Spring
8641 Colesville Road (next to AFI)
Metro: Silver Spring (3 blocks)

Helen Hayes Award winner Will Gartshore returns to our stage with this fun and fractured songbook of contemporary Broadway, well-known standards, and pop/rock. With reinforcement from Christopher Wingert on piano and Joan Singer on violin, Will scales the musical heights of Sondheim, Porter, and Jason Robert Brown while stitching together pop-flavored fragments of Coldplay, Neil Young, and Stevie Nicks.

The Washington Blade calls the show smoldering and eclectic with “sturdy, shimmery vocals, tight pacing and well-chosen material that, with help from the sparse, somewhat unorthodox instrumentation, Gartshore manages to bring new perspective to.” It’s enough to make you fall to pieces.

Tickets $15 general admission, $10 RHT subscribers, patrons age 30 & under, senior citizens, groups of 10+: click here or call 240.644.1100

Jonas' world is perfect. Everything is under control and safe. There is no war or fear or pain. There are also no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community. But when Jonas turns 12, he is chosen for special training from The Giver - to receive and keep the memories of the community. The Giver is the only person who holds the memories of real pain and real joy. Now Jonas will learn the truth about life - and the hypocrisy of his utopian world. Discover what it means to grow up, to grow wise, and to take control of your own destiny.

Celebrating the memory of Sarah Emily Metzger, The Sarah Play provides high school students the guidance and resources to mount a production at RHT under the mentorship of professional theatre artists and practitioners. It’s the country’s only theatrical production, offered as part of a regional theatre’s regular programming, that’s directed, designed, stage managed, and performed entirely by high school students.

The Sarah Play is made possible in part by The Sarah Metzger Memorial Fund, Jeffrey and Carolyn Leonard, The William S. Abell Foundation, and The Community Fund for the National Capital Region.

The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Washington, DC – Silver Spring is the official hotel sponsor of the 2012 Sarah Play.

George is a brilliant linguist who’s consumed with preserving and documenting dying languages. At home, though, he can’t find the words to preserve his disintegrating marriage. His archival assistant is mute with adoration for him; and his newest subjects, an elderly couple who are the last speakers of an obscure language, refuse to utter a word to one another. This magically inventive comedy asks whether love is a universal language or, like Esperanto, just a well-intentioned dream.

Tickets $25 general admission, $20 senior citizens, RHT subscribers, $15 patrons age 30 & under: click here or call 240.644.1100

The Illusion
By Tony Kushner
Freely adapted from Pierre Corneille’s L’illusion comique
Directed by Mitchell Hébert
May 24 - June 16

Round House Theatre Silver Spring

Desperate to reach his long-lost son, an aging father turns to a sorcerer for insight. As the sorcerer conjures three episodes from the young man's life, his father is led deep into a maze of romance, intrigue, conspiracy, and murder. But how much of it is true? In this witty and passionate adaptation, Tony Kushner weaves illusion with truth - and theatre with real life.
