(Sept. 13-Oct. 7) Taking Steps

After a few weeks of summer holidays it would appear the District is back to being a theater town. Northwest Washington's Constellation Theatre Company stages Taking Steps through early October. The farcical production finds six English subjects occupying three levels of a former brothel. While there they evade a ghost, capture an intruder, and unwittingly bed-hop while wittingly sidestepping spouses.

(Sept. 14-15) Double the Rent!

For more big laughs the revival company New Old Theater stages Double the Rent! this weekend at The Old Parish House in College Park. The one-act play based on John Maddison Morton's Box and Cox tracks the goings on in one tiny apartment occupied by two people totally unaware of their cohabitation. One works all day, one works all night, and the comedy ensues somewhere in between.

(Sept. 13-Oct. 21) Brel's Alive and Well

Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris is showing at Alexandria's MetroStage. The popular Belgian singer-songwriter's music is brought to life in the City of Light.
