How Mad Men inspired Chris Stezin’s Mack, Beth

A modern version of the classic is one way that Keegan Theatre hopes to attract younger audiences to the theater, and Stezin feels it can also bring some attention to Sir William and his works, as well.

Keegan Theatre Presents World Premiere of Mack, Beth

The Keegan Theatre kicks off 2017 with the world premiere of Mack, Beth, a modern retelling of Shakespeare’s tragedy by award-winning local playwright Chris Stezin.

DC Theatre Scene: An Irish Carol (2016)

It’s a very real cast, grounded by a moody set and lighting that’ll have you wanting to spend your Christmas Eve in Ireland. AN IRISH CAROL is a lovely spin on the traditional Christmas tale surely on its way to becoming a classic in its own right.

The Georgetowner: An Irish Carol (2016)

The play, written by company member Matthew Keenan, is now in its sixth year. Infused periodically with new cast members, it deals with a disaffected and wealthy man who’s focused too much of his life on tending to his business and not enough on being a complete human being … AN IRISH CAROL has a profane and lyrical way with words. It’s a good fit with the Keegan repertoire, which has always been an Irish stew of mostly contemporary plays… The redone theater has both a modern and an intimate feel to it. It’s welcoming, like the company itself.

Washington Blade: Six Degrees of Separation

[Director] Brnadon McCoy, a Keegan company member, has assembled an able cast and design team to bring to life Guare’s well-spun yarn. … Matthew Keenan’s spare and elegant set consists of a two-sided spinning Kandinsky and free-floating pieces of white flats that hang like disengaged puzzles pieces.
