STUDIO THEATRE’S production of “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead” features the band of actors who perform the famous “play within the play” of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” among many other antics. Led by Floyd King in the foreground, they include (left to right) Falls Church’s Miles Butler, Theo Hadjimichael, Tim Lueke, Nick Stevens and Dan Istrate. (Courtesy photo)

In an environment such as Washington, D.C., with only one major newspaper with one major critic that everyone defers to, it can be a rough go for any theatre production that does not live up to that one particular person’s preferred cup of tea.
