DC Metro Theater Arts: GOD OF CARNAGE

Yasmina Reza’s Tony Award-winning God of Carnage is a cautionary tale for modern times. Written in French and translated into English by Christopher Hampton, Reza’s razor-sharp black comedy has resonated with audiences from Europe and the Middle East to Australia.

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.
