Set in the Mexico of the 1960s, "Yo También Hablo de la Rosa (I Too Speak of the Rose)" explores the media frenzy that erupts when a pair of poverty-stricken teens skip school and accidentally derail a train, resulting in widely varying views about what happened and what the punishment should be.

D.C. legend E. Faye Bulter (Arena Stage's "Oklahoma!") joins "Phantom" alum David Benoit for the macabre murder musical of the millennium! Sondheim is at his bloody best in "Sweeney Todd", his musical masterpiece about a barbaric barber and the beastly baker with whom he strikes a sinister partnership. Set in 19th century England, the musical tells the tale of the Todd, who, after being banished from his city on false charges, returns to exact his revenge. Teaming up with local pie shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett, Todd opens a barbershop, where he slits the throats of customers -- and she then bakes their bodies into pies to dispose of the evidence. A legendary smash in its 1979 debut, this darkly comic show won eight Tony Awards, and "The New York Times" gushed, "Sondheim's most ravishing score. One helluva show!" Now "Sweeney Todd" swings his signature blade on the Olney Theatre Center stage. [less-]

From Sarah Treem, the writer-producer of "House of Cards", comes this smart and compelling play about science, family and the survival of the fittest. In "The How and the Why", two women -- Zelda and Rachel -- meet for the first time on the eve of a national conference. Both are brilliant evolutionary biologists who share a passion for science and a contrarian approach to their male-dominated field, but when the young scholar challenges the older woman's theory about the way people regard sex, mysteries about their relationship begin to unfold. This engaging production offers differing views on evolution, feminism and generational divides in modern America -- and it will likely keep you talking long after it's over.

A stage littered with liquor bottles and café chairs transforms from a Parisian bistro to the banks of the Irati River in Spain. A bar table roars to life and charges a matador. Championed by "The New York Times" as "a lively riff on Hemingway's first and greatest novel," "The Select (The Sun Also Rises)"'s innovative staging reimagines the 1926 roman à clef via a fusion of artistic forms. As the story winds its way through France and Spain and lands in the heart of the Festival of San Fermín in Pamplona, Hemingway's narrator carries the heavy burdens of a war injury and his inability to have the woman he desires -- a woman whose romantic escapades he follows with bemused but painful fatalism. Don't miss this genre-defying work by acclaimed theatre ensemble Elevator Repair Service when it takes over D.C.'s Lansburgh Theatre. [less-]
