(December 2-January 10) SOLID GOLD CADILLAC Who needs "cash for clunkers" when you can go "gold for Caddies," during [Solid Gold Cadillac] (https://www.studiotheatre.org/boxoffice/cadillac.php). The play opens tonight at Studio Theatre near D.C.'s Dupont Circle and runs through January 10th. This farcical Cinderella story follows Laura Partridge, a minor stockholder in a major corporation, as she takes on big business and corporate corruption.

(December 2) SONNY ROLLINS If you're not in the market for a Cadillac, how about a Colossus? The Washington Performing Arts Society presents the "Saxophone Colossus" Sonny Rollins at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall tonight at 8. The treasured tenor of jazz's golden age brings his epic improvisations to the District.

(December 3) HOMEGROWN MUSIC If you're looking for a lunch break to remember, head on over to the Library of Congress tomorrow at noon for The Berntsons band in the Library's Coolidge Auditorium on Capitol Hill. This familial flock plays traditional Norwegian-American dance ditties handed down over the centuries.
