Airness

by Chelsea Marcantel
directed by Christina A. Coakley
choreographed by Jessica Redish


** DC PREMIERE **
** CO-PRODUCED WITH 1ST STAGE **

When Nina enters her first air guitar competition, she thinks winning will be easy. But as she befriends a group of charismatic nerds all committed to becoming the next champion, she discovers that there’s more to this art form than playing pretend.  A hit at the 2017 Humana Festival, AIRNESS is a comedy about competition, completion, and finding the airness inside yourself.

AIRNESS is co-produced with 1st Stage of Tysons, VA

“The most fun you will have at the theater this year … to call this play a ‘crowd pleaser’ is a drastic understatement.” — Insider Louisville

“In a word, dazzling … the most talked-about production of this year’s Humana Festival.” — LEO Weekly
