DC Metro Theater Arts: THE BALTIMORE WALTZ

If The Baltimore Waltz, an early work by Paula Vogel, sounds playful and a bit off the rails –  well, it often is. Vogel suffuses this work with comic banter, funny episodes, and a whole lot of sex. It’s sure to charm even the steeliest of audience members, but that’s only one side of the coin. The

The Washington Post: THE BALTIMORE WALTZ

Excellent cast steps up in THE BALTIMORE WALTZ The Baltimore Waltz prances in circles around its subject, which is the death of playwright Paula Vogel’s brother, Carl, in 1988. Vogel’s approach to her grief — a nation’s grief, as the country grappled with lost lives during the AIDS epidemic — was to fantasize. The 90-minute

[In Lincolnesque,] playwright John Strand has crafted a well structured comedy about the conflict between democratic ideals that, until recently, even the worst practitioners paid lip service to, and the situational ethics that even the most high-minded must indulge in if they are to accomplish anything. While some of the words are borrowed … Strand also has a

DC Theatre Scene: LINCOLNESQUE

Lincolnesque is a look back at a man and a time and a look at the here and now, when the high-minded words and ethics—integrity, honor— of the 16th President are seen as an innovative take on politicking. The script is funny, full of long runs of dialogue barbed with truths that catch your breath and make

DC Metro Theater Arts: LINCOLNESQUE

In Lincolnesque, a play written by John Strand and directed by Colin Smith, the art of lying for one’s country succeeds in fusing a deceptively light touch and inside-the-Beltway political humor with profoundly deep messaging that goes straight to the heart. Lincolnesque’s timeliness hits the bullseye. Brandon McCoy as Francis brings a boyish innocence to his delusional

The Washington Post: LINCOLNESQUE

The widely lamented awfulness of right now is why the Dupont Circle troupe Keegan Theatre has brought back [John Strand’s] “Lincolnesque,” a dark fantasy about a noble speechwriter who breaks down and starts channeling Abraham Lincoln’s loftiest prose. With “Lincolnesque,” the Keegan audience gets no sense that the seemingly of-the-moment show is over a decade old.
