May 22-Jun. 30: The Real Thing
The Real Thing by playwright Tom Stoppard opens tonight at The Studio Theatre in D.C. The Tony Award-winning drama explores love, commitment, and the power of clever writing.

But fiction is often rooted in fact, and when accusations fly, the on and off-stage relationships begin to suffer. Directed by David Muse, the play runs through June 30.
