Everyman Theatre, Arena Stage extend runs of hit productions
Everyman's staging of Arthur Miller's "All My Sons," originally scheduled to close Dec. 12, will now go through Dec. 18.
Vincent Lancisi directs an exceptional cast in an illuminating production of this still-potent American play, providing quite a lesson in ensemble acting and subtly atmospheric scenic design. I can't recommend this highly enough.
Arena Stage is celebrating its appealingly renovated facility with a vibrant revival of the venerable Rodgers and Hammerstein musical "Oklahoma." The production was to have closed Dec. 26, but
Director Molly Smith may not have created a life-changing realization of the show, but her idea of emphasizing the diversity of the original Oklahoma territory pays strong dividends, with the help of an engaging cast that seizes on the familiar music with great enthusiasm.
