Musical maestro Stephen Sondheim was at his bloody best when he penned Sweeney Todd, his macabre masterpiece about a barbaric barber prone to slitting the throats of his customers so his business partner can bake their remains into pies. The show has enjoyed two successful Broadway revivals since it opened in 1979 and a Tim Burton film adaptation starring Johnny Depp. But now, this sinister 19th-century London tale enters its strangest waters yet, in a rock-tastic overhaul courtesy of prog-metal band The Fleet Street Collective. Presented by Landless Theatre Company, this innovative production keeps all Sondheim's famously witty lyrics and storytelling the same, but amps up the orchestration with chunky seven-string guitar, double-kick drums and extended-range bass lines. Sondheim even gave his blessing to this offbeat, exciting experiment, telling The New York Times, "I believe that what keeps theater alive is its openness to reinterpretation from generation to generation."

S_inging Our Hearts Out_ is a cabaret production presented by Washington, DC-based performers Karen Lange and Courtney Tisch, in partnership with Pinky Swear Productions. After a sold out one-night performance at the Bethesda Theater this past February, this entirely female cast is back to sing songs ranging from musical theater to jazz to today’s pop music as well as present original solo performance work. The women in the cast have been principal performers at American Century Theater, Factory 449 Productions, Hexagon, Imagination Stage, Olney Theater Center, Pinky Swear Productions, Shakespeare Theater Company, Studio Theater, Taffety Punk, and Washington Improv Theater.
Capital Blend is a Washington DC based all-female a cappella group formed in the spring of 2008 and consists of women from a wide variety of professions. Capital Blend performs in and around the DC Metro area at venues ranging from the Washington Nationals Stadium to retirement communities and corporate events. The group’s repertoire includes popular music, oldies but goodies, international hits, and original compositions.
Kismet is a 12-woman a cappella group formed when fate— or, well, kismet— brought a group of like-minded singers to the same cafe in early 2003. They have been singing together ever since and have recently performed at SingStrong (an annual a cappella festival in Reston, VA) and the National Building Museum’s Volunteer Appreciation Event as well as at awards banquets, weddings, and coffee shops in and around Washington, DC.
