An established company successful enough to have opened not one but two new spaces in recent years, Round House was home to the world première of Columbinus, a thoughtfully disturbing response to the Colorado school massacre. (It went on to get a well-received production off-Broadway.) Its main home is in the close-in suburb of Bethesda, but it also offers a regular slate of performances (including a cabaret series) near the other end of the Metro’s Red Line, in a black-box space at the AFI Silver complex in Silver Spring. At Bethesda, new comedy Seminar by Theresa Rebeck is being staged in early 2014, followed by Pulitzer-winning August Wilson’s Two Trains Running, a poignant, humorous portrait of African-American life in the 1960s.
