(February 26) PEKING ACROBATS Some of Peking's most pliable people perform at the Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda tomorrow night at 8 p.m. The Peking Acrobats first debuted their act in 1986, and a few new recruits notwithstanding, bring a classic show to the stage combining athletics and art.

(February 26 & 27) STEREOTYPICAL STORIES The Atlas Performing Arts Center turns taboos on their heads with the show Wetbacks, Aliens & Towelheads: True Stories from the First Generation tomorrow and Saturday, as five performers tell their true stories of immigration. Within the slurs and stereotypes, the show shares voices from Cape Verde, Argentina, Nigeria, India and the Philippines.

(February 27) POLISHED PIANIST D.C.'s Kennedy Center hosts the polished Polish pianist Rafal Blechacz in the Terrace Theater Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. The Chopin Prize puts this 20-year old into a world-class arena.
