Anniversaries and plays by female playwrights will be celebrated during the upcoming 2015-2016 Baltimore theater season and J. Wynn Rousuck is in the studio with Tom to talk all about it. The Vagabond Players and Everyman Theatre both have milestone anniversaries. Washington’s large-scale celebration of women playwrights will reach stages in this area as well, among them: Single Carrot Theatre, the Interrobang Theatre Company, the Strand Theater Company, Rep Stage and Olney Theatre Center.

Women will also be well represented at Center Stage, which is producing an all-female “As You Like It,” two thought-provoking new plays by women, “X’s and O’s” and “Detroit ’67,” and the musical, “The Secret Garden.” Musicals in the Hippodrome’s new line-up will include the recent Broadway hits, “Kinky Boots” and “Motown The Musical.” And, Cohesion Theatre Company, in partnership with Iron Crow Theatre, will present the Trans* Voices Workshop Series.
