The old movie theater on Wisconsin and O street sits right in the middle of Georgetown, its recognizable neon sign lighting up the street below.

Fun Home Remembers the Joy and Pain of Looking Back

I had my qualms about Fun Home. The national touring production of the five-time Tony winning musical was coming to D.C.’s National Theatre and my expectations were stratospheric despite my best attempts to temper them, which means disappointment was almost inevitable. Even with the Tony’s stamp of approval—its 2015 haul includes Best Musical, Best Score,...

There is a dangerous magic about theatre-in-the-round—and a heightened sense of communal experience. At Arena Stage’s 2017 production of Lorraine Hansberry’s 1959 play A Raisin in the Sun, the actors are totally exposed on the square of stage that becomes the Younger household, surrounded on all four sides by the audience. And while it can…
