  • Enter for your chance to win free tickets to Ford's Theatre's 2018-2019 mainstage production's First Previews thru their partnership with TodayTix. First Preview for the classic "Born Yesterday" by Garson Kanin is Fri, Sept 21. Political satire meets romantic comedy in this sharp-edged satire starring Kimberly Gilbert, Ed Gero and Cody Nickell.

  • Performances begin this weekend for The Klunch's world premiere of Ian Allen’s "How to Win a Race War." The three-part comic satire, replete with song-and-dance numbers is a parody of white supremacist “race war” fiction, which has proliferated in the years since Timothy McVeigh named "The Turner Diaries" as inspiration for his brutal 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. Friday 9/21 and the matinee on Saturday 9/22 are both Pay-What-You-Can performances.
