This is the production I've been waiting for all year: an adaptation of Hedda Gabler, directed by Genius Award–winner Jennifer Zeyl at the Genius Award–winning On the Boards, performed by Marya Sea Kaminski, Lathrop Walker, and other genius actors of Washington Ensemble Theatre. The title demonstrates these guys know precisely what they're doing—you'll never hear a better summary of Hedda's plot. Expect this to be smart, fast, physical (actors will literally climb the walls), and maybe a little lewd. (On the Boards, 100 W Roy St, 217-9888. 8 pm, $18, through Dec 17.)
