DC Metro Theater Arts: THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY

The Keegan Theatre’s production of this swirling musical [The Bridges of Madison County] with music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown and book by Marsha Norman is an aching exploration of the lives we lead, the loves we chose, and the bridges we cross. Leading the way as Francesca was the powerhouse Susan Derry. Despite her

For the next five weeks, Keegan Theatre is transforming itself from that nice theatrical establishment on Church Street in Dupont Circle to “a noisy hall where there’s a nightly brawl.” And you would be hard pressed to name any other place you’d rather be than watching the razzle dazzle that is their sensational new production

Metro Weekly: CHICAGO

Somewhere inside Roxie Hart’s first number [of The Keegan Theatre’s new production of Chicago], “Funny Honey,” during which the brazen, fame-craving floozy introduces her sorry sap of a husband Amos, it dawns that this Roxie is bananas.

DC Metro Theater Arts: AN IRISH CAROL

Now in its seventh year, the Keegan Theatre’s annual production of Matthew J. Keenan’s An Irish Carol has become a favorite Washington DC holiday tradition. It’s easy to see why.
