Extra! Extra! Read All About How You Must See Disney’s Tony-Award Winning “Newsies” at National Theatre!

It’s only here at the National Theatre until June 21st, so hurry and buy your tickets. You will NOT be sorry.

Need to Laugh? Then Go to Dame Edna’s “Glorious Goodbye: The Farewell Tour” at National Theatre

Need to Laugh? Then Go to Dame Edna’s “Glorious Goodbye: The Farewell Tour” at National Theatre

Irreverent. Unfiltered. Fabulous. Riotous. These are some of the words that come to mind when I’m asked, “Who is Dame Edna Everage?” The first time I saw her perform in D.C. I believe it was her 50th birthday celebration about 10 years ago. Her perfectly coifed just-right-shade-of-purple ‘do (the envy of all “blue hairs”), wild spectacle […]

“Dame Edna’s Glorious Goodbye – The Farewell Tour” to Play National Theatre April 21-26

The first time I saw Dame Edna perform in Washington, DC, I think I was in my 20’s. Granted the end of my 20’s, but still, it had been that long ago . I had had no idea what to expect, but I can tell you, I was bowled over laughing, you know, the kind of physical […]

Pippin Now Playing at the National Theatre

By Punch Correspondent Taryn White  Do you like musicals? Maybe that’s a silly question, because everyone likes musicals!

Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage : at National Theatre Now through September 14

By Punch Correspondent Melinda Contreras  I confess. Prior to September 1, 2014, I had never seen the movie Dirty Dancing (1987). It took my 27 years to see why everyone goes crazy whenever “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” begins to play during a night out. Of course I’ve seen many reenactments of “the lift,” […]

Experience the Blue Man Group at The National Theatre Through May 11

By Punch Correspondent Melinda Contreras  Prior to last night’s performance at the National Theatre, I knew nothing about the Blue Man Group, except that they were blue.

Mamma Mia! the Musical Makes March Melodious (at the National Theatre)

As a fan of live musicals and plays, I do my best to see productions (particularly long running, award winning, globally celebrated ones) as often as I can, whether here in DC or New York City (or anywhere it’s possible). These are what memories are made of, especially because I remember years and years growing […]

STOMP Your Way to the National Theatre through February 9

STOMP Your Way to the National Theatre through February 9

By Punch Correspondent Melinda Contreras  Remember all those times as a child you were told to stop dragging your feet, to stop clanking your glass while dining out, or to stop tapping your pencil on your desk? The sounds from each of these activities can become quite annoying if they are done while someone else […]
