Considered a true American classic, Sam Shepard's Pulitzer Prize-winning Fool for Love finds a woman named Mae hiding out at an old motel in the Southwest. Eddie, her old flame and childhood friend, shows up and threatens to metaphorically and literally drag her back into the life from which she had fled. Their battle plays out as they trade barbs, heartbreak and painful revelations, taking themselves and audiences on an unforgettable journey from love and attraction to obsession. At once funny and horrific, Fool for Love is widely regarded as Shepard's finest work. Learn More

When your hard-earned fame has been surpassed by a brilliantly gifted, potty-mouthed golden boy, what else can you do but smile to his face while secretly plotting his downfall? Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus, winner of seven Tony Awards ‑ including Best Play ‑ and the Oscar for Best Picture, depicts the flamboyant genius of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as seen through the eyes of his desperately jealous contemporary, composer Antonio Salieri.
With Edward Gero (Nixon’s Nixon_) as Antonio Salieri, Sasha Olinick (_Around the World in 80 Days, The Talented Mr. Ripley_) as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Laura C. Harris (_26 Miles) as Constanze Weber, and DC theatre favorite Floyd King as Emperor Joseph II. _ _ Mark Ramont, from Ford’s Theatre, directs a towering story of greed, obsession, and guilt set to the glorious music of revenge.
