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.

MD Theatre Guide: CHICAGO

Keegan took this landmark show, and – even in their smaller stage – has kept the power and intensity of the show intact. “Chicago,” with its outrageously challenging dance sequences, stylized, larger than life characters and the tongue in cheek breaking of the fourth wall is one of a kind.

DC Theatre Scene: CHICAGO

“Razzle dazzle ‘em!” Silver-tongue shyster lawyer Billy Flynn melodically opines that if you do that, you’ll have an audience eating out of your hand. If you can snag a ticket to the Keegan Theatre’s new production of Chicago, prepared to be razzled, dazzled and blown away. As is fitting for a musical set in the turbulent 1920s
