LETTICE AND LOVAGE at Quotidian Theatre in Bethesda 4/17-5/17, 2015


Quotidian Theatre Company
presents
Lettice and Lovage, by Peter Shaffer

April 17 - May 17, 2015
at the Writer's Center
4508 Walsh Street, Bethesda, MD 20815
Lettice Douffet, an expert on Elizabethan cuisine and medieval weaponry, is an indefatigable but daffy enthusiast of history and the theatre. As a tour guide at Fustian House, one of the least stately of London's stately homes, she theatrically embellishes its historical past, ultimately coming up on the radar of Lotte Schoen, an inspector from the Preservation Trust. Neither impressed or entertained by Lettice's freewheeling history lessons, Schoen fires her. Not one however, to go without a fight, Lettice engages the stoic, conventional Lotte in battle to the death of all that is sacred to the Empire and the crown. 


This hit by the author of Equus and Amadeus featured a triumphant award-winning performance by Dame Maggie Smith in London and on Broadway

Our production features Jane Squier Bruns as Lettice Douffet and Leah Mazade as Lotte Schoen, with John Decker as Mr. Bardolph and Elizabeth Darby as Miss Framer.

Directed by Louis Pangaro


Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00pm
Sundays at 2:00pm
Extra 2pm matinee on Saturday 5/16

Tickets $15-$30 (student & senior discounts). Available online.

BREAKING BAD: SINFUL SONGS FROM THE 1920'S AND 30'S

Nationally acclaimed and "outstandingly talented trio" Three For A Song return to Germano's with songs your mama probably never taught you. Join pianist Alex Hassan, tenor Doug Bowles, and soprano Kari Paludan for a hilarious and scandalous evening of sinfully good tunes with decidedly bawdy predilections. Equal parts double-entendre, sexy, sophisticated and downright naughty; you've never heard Cole Porter and his ilk like this! Don't say we didn't warn you. 

“…One of the freshest and most stimulating shows for lovers of vintage popular music performed by an outstandingly talented trio.” — Michael Feinstein
