Theater Review: Doubt at the National Theatre

A brilliant play about perception, faith, and human frailty, Doubt won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and four Tony awards.

Looking for more theater to see this weekend? In addition to our review of Family Secrets, our theater critic Leslie Milk just saw the premiere of Doubt at the National Theatre (1321 Pennsylvania Ave. NW), and says that it "deserves every accolade it has received and more":

"The play is a tour de force for Cherry Jones, who reprises her Tony-award-wining Broadway performance as Sister Aloysius. She is mesmerizing—witty, wily, unyielding, and unimpressed by the changes in the church. Washington audiences are lucky to have Jones gracing the stage at the National."
