Dominion Stage has announced plans for its 73rd season, opening with a Washington-area premiere of a musical comedy that has been delayed due to COVID.
The show: “Firebringer,” which most recently was slated to take the stage in January but was delayed due to a rise in COVID cases related to the omicron variant. It is slated to now run over the summer.
Director Michael Page said that nearly all the cast and crew of the originally planned production will take part.
“We’re incredibly excited to have a second chance to bring this show to the stage,” Page said. “The dedication of this team is amazing. They love this show, and they cannot wait to perform it for our audiences.”
Autumn will bring “August Wilson’s King Hedley II,” a drama, with winter 2023 tackling the David Mamet comedy “Boston Marriage.” Wrapping up the season in the spring of 2023 will be the rock musical “Next to Normal.”
Performances are slated for Gunston Arts Center Theatre II, 2700 South Lang St. Specific performance dates will be announced later.
Like many theater organizations, Dominion Stage was forced to scrap in-person programming with the advent of COVID in the spring of 2020, but it resumed live productions in the fall of 2021. The troupe plans to round out its truncated 2021-22 season with “[Name of Show]” running in May at Theatre-on-the-Run in the Shirlington area.
