[caption id="attachment_6699" align="alignright" width="207" caption="Clockwise from top right: Nancy Robinette, Kimberly Schraf and Holly Twyford"][/caption] Ford's Theatre's The Carpetbagger's Children features three of Washington's most revered and accomplished actresses onstage together for the first time, and is exactly as exciting as this publicity photo makes it look. In his review for DCist, my friend Ian found a way of pointing out nicely that nothing happens in this show, at least not that we actually get to see.

I say it less politely in this week's City Paper, wherein I also take in Taffety Punk Theatre Company's Owl Moon, which is messier and more fun than the Ford's show and features a great song by Xiu Xiu that I hadn't heard before and a talking spirit-owl.

So obviously it wasn't even a fair fight. Owl Moon of Ga'Hoole, y'all.
