Sept. 27-Oct. 27: The Laramie Project
Matthew Gardiner directs The Laramie Project, which opens on Friday and runs through October 27 at the historic Ford’s Theatre. Based on a true story, the drama by Moisés Kaufman and Members of the Tectonic Theatre Project paints a complex portrait of a small community’s response to a vicious hate crime, the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard. The show is presented as part of The Lincoln Legacy Project, “an effort to generate dialogue around issues of tolerance, equality and acceptance.”

Sept. 28-Oct. 26: Titus Andronicus
One of Shakespeare’s bloodiest plays, Titus Andronicus, hits the stage at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop in Southeast this Saturday night. But this production by Taffety Punk Theatre Company’s Riot Grrrls isn’t your average show. An all-female cast takes on the roles of Titus, Marcus, Tamora and others in this tragedy about sacrifice, violence and revenge. You can see the show through October 26.

Music: “IMAGINE” by London Symphony Orchestra
