An American theatre institution, Shear Madness is the longest running non-musical show in American history. It's been running in Boston at the Charles Playhouse for over 30 years, and has enjoyed hugely successful productions the world over. Now it continues in Washington DC for its open run at the Kennedy Center, in time for the holiday season! Part comedy farce and part murder mystery, no two shows are exactly the same!

Following the lives of four young bohemians as they fight, fantasize and fall in (and out) of love in the face of poverty, La Boheme is widely regarded as one of Puccini's greatest works, spawning myriad adaptations, even becoming the basis for hit musical RENT. Although the struggle and strife (and excitement) of 1840's Paris may seem worlds away to us now, the themes have remained timeless and universal.

First making its bow on the Great White Way in 1943, Rodgers and Hammerstein's evergreen classic Oklahoma! whisked early audiences away from the stark realities of World War II and offered up a song-filled optimism and unity. Reclaiming its joyous melodies, can-do spirit and classic plot, New York-based director Daniel Fish revived the song-and-dance spectacular in his home city in early 2019, earning eight Tony Award nominations, including Best Revival Of A Musical, for its stripped back, Country-western treatment of the original score and vivid, darker depiction of the Wild West reflected in its naturalistic staging and style.

Built in 1971 to realize the late President Kennedy's ambitions to bring culture to the American public, the Center has seen over 300 productions across ballet, theater and concerts created and stage at the complex. December 2014 saw the start of an ambitious expansion project that would reopen access from the Center to the Potomac River, as well as easier access to lower Georgetown and provide more space for visitors and performers to engage with.
