As a child growing up in a one-bedroom railroad apartment in Brooklyn, Marilyn Hausfeld loved to sing. She landed a spot on a weekly television show and a Nathan's Hot Dogs commercial, but she didn't truly take to the stage until after she'd seen her three kids off to school. She has appeared in many D.C.-area theaters in roles including Golde in Fiddler on the Roof, Stella Adler in Stella, Kate in Neil Simon's Broadway Bound and Brighton Beach Memoirs, and Esther in Richard Rashke's Dear Esther.
Now Marilyn tells her own story in an intimate one-woman cabaret show featuring 15 songs plus reflections on parenthood, marriage, and being a grandparent. Washington Women in Theatre chose Just Between Us as the only cabaret at the Women's Voices Theatre Festival.
When a senseless act of violence changes her life forever, a liberal college professor finds herself drawn to the very weapon used to perpetrate the crime — and to the irresistible feeling of power that comes from holding life and death in her hands. Peering down the barrel of a uniquely American crisis, she begins to suspect that when it comes to gun violence, we're all part of the problem.
Roundabout Underground presents On the Exhale, a provocative world premiere from Martín Zimmerman (Netflix's Narcos), directed by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman (Violet). Staged with heart-pounding intensity in Roundabout's intimate Black Box Theatre, this play draws you into the white-hot center of one of the most divisive — and most urgent — debates in the United States.
The Plurality of Privacy Project in Five-Minute Plays (P3M5) is a transatlantic theater project initiated to explore the value of privacy. In cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Washington, theaters across the United States and Europe have commissioned playwrights to write five-minute plays themed around the question, "What does privacy mean to you in the digital age?" The results are being presented in different formats by a network of theaters between January 2017 and June 2018. These performances, staged readings, and community forums create an artistic and cultural dialogue centered around varying American and European understandings of privacy.

Iyaba Ibo Mandingo, formerly Kenny Athel George DeCruise — painter, poet, husband, father, son, and undocumented immigrant from Antigua. At the age of 11, Iyaba is plucked from the tropical comfort of his boyhood and taken to life in America where he must navigate his way to manhood without the guidance of a father.
Using canvas, paint, poetry, prose, and song, Iyaba tells us a story of his transformation from "Mommy Me No Wanna Go Merrica" — a prophetic piece that hints at the many trials he will face in a new land — to his powerful political poetry that would lead to his arrest and attempted deportation in post 9/11 America. Throughout the play, Iyaba shares his rage, his determination, and his hope while he paints his self-portrait and successfully struggles to redefine his humanity, rediscover his smile, and truly accept himself for the first time.
The War Boys follows three young Texas men patrolling the Mexican border. As they wait and watch for people crossing illegally, they play a game that gives us insight into the influences that have shaped their views of the world. The play invites us to examine sexism, racism, and xenophobia present in contemporary American culture. It is also a study of the relationship between young men, sex, and violence. Written in 1993, The War Boys is more timely than ever given the current political climate. This adults-only production contains coarse language and psychosexual scenes but is reflective of how young American men behave in a culture that prizes aggression and violence
Violence and betrayal, angels and prophets, villains and kings, and chickens. Who rises to rule and how far will he fall in the clown kingdom of Who Would Be King? This epic production by Liars & Believers swings from absurd buffoonery to high tragedy, with kinetic physicality, silliness, swords, and a live synthwave score.
Strap on your ruby slippers, and join the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Lion, Dorothy, and her little dog too for this adaptation of The Wizard of Oz. Lots of people love this classic story of the girl who wakes up in a strange land filled with witches, munchkins, and monkeys — and befriends a cowardly lion, a tin man without a heart, and a scarecrow with no brain in her quest to find her way back home. Journey down the yellow brick road through the land of Oz to meet the wizard while humming along to memorable songs from the Oscar-winning film, including "Over the Rainbow," "We're Off to See the Wizard," and "If I Only Had a Brain."
