(May 13-June 6) INDIAN EPIC If your week has been less than epic, check out Constellation Theatre Company's North American premiere of The Ramayana at the Source theater in Northwest DC, opening tonight and running through June 6th. Avatars of Hindu gods battle ten-headed demons with the help of some monkeys, bears and eagles in this ancient Indian epic of passion and adventure.

(May 14) A SPOONFUL OF SEBASTIAN And passion meets cutlery tomorrow night at the Montpelier ArtsCenter when The Lovin' Spoonful's John Sebastian takes the stage at 8 p.m. in Laurel, Maryland. The troubadour goes traditional, scooping into the American folk songbook along with guitar, banjo, harmonica and auto harp.

(May 13-15) THE ROMANTICS Meanwhile, things get steamy at the Strathmore Music Center as the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra performs Three Romantics in Baltimore and North Bethesda - a concert of Strauss, Schumann and Brahms tonight through Saturday.
