Mar. 22-24: Word Becomes Flesh

Starting tonight you can catch a one-weekend-only performance of Word Becomes Flesh at The Atlas Performing Arts Center in Northeast. Performed by five men, but told through the perspective of a young, single father, the play follows the nine-month journey of pregnancy and examines the joys and responsibilities associated with fatherhood in Black America. Produced by Theater Alliance, this narrative verse play by Marc Bamuthi Joseph speaks to his unborn son through a series of letters, dance and music.

Mar. 22-Apr. 14: Never The Sinner

Is it still a perfect crime if you get caught? Never the Sinner by playwright John Logan opens tonight at 1st Stage in Tyson's Corner. Directed by Jeremy Skidmore, the play chronicles the 1924 "trial of the century" from the perspective of the attorney tasked with defending two teenage deviants charged with kidnapping and murder. The production runs through April 14.
