Spend the night at our favorite theater, Studio Theatre, in Logan Circle. Tonight’s performance is Straight White Men at 8 p.m. The story follows three brothers and their father at Christmastime. When one brother seems to buckle under the pressures of achievement, it becomes clear that these men are wrestling with something larger than each other. From one of the most daring writers in America, comes a razor-sharp comedy that confronts the complexities of identity and hypocrisies of privilege.
