UPDATED: Tysons’ 1st Stage Unveils Upcoming Season’s New Shows

Updated 3:35 p.m. — The theater announced today (Tuesday) that it will close and postpone shows due to concerns about spreading the coronavirus. 

Theater-goers now know what will be on the stage later this year and early 2021 at 1st Stage Theatre.

The theater announced its 2020-2021 season on Sunday (March 15).

The new season will kick off with “Mlima’s Tale” on Sept. 10.

Written by Lynn Nottage and directed by José Carrasquillo, the play follows the journey of ivory tusks poached from an elderly elephant in a protected reserve in Kenya. The play will run through Oct. 11.

From Dec. 3 to Jan. 3, 2021, “The Rainmaker” will tell the story of a spinster, whose father and brothers find a suitor — a con man — for her. Written by N. Richard Nash, the show will be directed by Deidra LaWan Starnes.

In February, people can see the sci-fi play “The Phlebotomist” — written by Ella Road and directed by Alex Levy, the theater’s artistic director.

Then in April, theatergoers can watch a musical and comedy about a gay burlesque performer. “The Nance” is written by Douglas Carter Beane and will be directed by Nick Olcott.

Alex Levy will also direct “The Last Match,” an Anna Ziegler play about a tension-filled tennis match. The show will run from May to June.

The season will end with the fifth annual Logan Festival, which will feature solo performers for two weeks.
