La Marquise du Châtelet was a woman born in the wrong era. A brilliant mathematician and physicist, she was the toast of the Enlightenment. Nevertheless, she's not a very well known historical figure. Voltaire got it right when he said du Châtelet was "a great man whose only fault was being a woman." Now Lauren Gunderson's play "Emilie: La Marquise du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight" resurrects this fascinating personality. Emilie finds herself back in the world of the living, patting her body in surprise and wondering at the reason for her return. She soon becomes desperate to find out whether her challenge to one of Isaac Newton's equations was correct. "I died thinking: Was I right?" she explains. "Shortly followed by: Was I loved? Shortly followed by: Does either one really matter in the end?" This smart, surprising and sexy portrait of a true genius is onstage at the Gunston Arts Center in Arlington. [less-]

In this rollicking farce set backstage at the Erlanger Theatre in Buffalo in 1953, a husband-and-wife acting team with a crumbling marriage struggle to keep their repertory ensemble together long enough to allow famed director Frank Capra to see them perform. But with a pregnant ingenue, a drunk leading man and a surprise visit from their daughter, things quickly go horribly (and hilariously) wrong. Mistaken identities, outrageous plot twists, slapstick comedy and a slew of self-obsessed performers desperately try to keep things from falling apart. The Providence Players kick off their 20th anniversary season with this fast-paced comedy at the James Lee Community Center Theater in Falls Church. [less-]

Mischief and merriment await in Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing", the original battle of the sexes. This witty romantic comedy shows how love brings out the best and worst in all of us. Fun-loving bachelor Benedick returns from a victory at war only to find himself caught up in another battle: a war of wits and words with the acid-tongued, headstrong Beatrice. Though they've each sworn off romance, their "merry war" of clever insults reveals the growing attraction between them. Meanwhile, Benedick's fellow soldier, Claudio, is head over heels for Hero, the governor's daughter. They will soon be wed ... if the treacherous Don John doesn't ruin everything first. Passionate and blindingly funny, "Much Ado About Nothing" is filled with some of the most brilliant comedic repartee ever written, and now you can see it at the Annapolis Shakespeare Company's Main Stage.

You can travel far and wide, but you'd be hard pressed to find anybody who'll tell you that marriage is easy -- and if you do, that person is probably lying. Coincidentally, lies are reoccurring themes in Nobel Prize-winning writer Harold Pinter's one-act plays "The Lover" and "The Collection", coming to the Lansburgh Theatre in Washington, D.C. "The Lover" alternates between comedy and drama as a couple try to spice up their relationship by faking an affair, while in "The Collection" a pair of married couples add too much spice to their relationship while bitterly interrogating one another about a very real affair that may or may not have happened. Bring a date -- if you dare -- to this evening of rumors and recriminations. [less-]

Ironically, one of "Death of a Salesman"'s most misquoted lines -- "Attention must be paid!" -- is its most accurate advertisement. For attention must be paid to this iconic drama which packs a timeless emotional punch with its unflinching examination of the American Dream -- not to mention that it was also hailed by "The New York Times" as "one of the finest dramas in the whole range of the American theater." "Death of a Salesman" centers around the aging Willy Loman, who, after a lifetime as an unfulfilled traveling salesman, finds himself at the end of his career -- and the end of his tether. Winner of both the Pulitzer and the Tony for Best Play in 1949, Arthur Miller's classic still retains every ounce of its emotional impact to this day.
