BroadwayWorld: GOD OF CARNAGE

Keegan Theatre’s Feisty GOD OF CARNAGE A child injures another in a playground confrontation.

BroadwayWorld: AS YOU LIKE IT

Keegan’s production [of As You Like It] is not a traditional Shakespearean play, but instead the DC-area premiere of the musical version of the show, written by co-adapters Shaina Taub and Laurie Woolery as a commission for The Public Theatre in 2017.
