(June 2-27) A SERIOUS CASE OF GOAT A middle-aged man's lost libido is the catalyst of confusion in the play The Goat or, Who is Silvia?. It debuts tonight at Rep Stage on the campus of Howard Community College in Columbia, Maryland. Edward Albee's Tony award-winning farce includes a confrontation between modern social mores and the boundaries of passion.

(June 3-July 3) OTHELLO And one of the Bard's most passionate plays is reinterpreted in movement by Synetic Theater, opening Othello at the Kennedy Center tomorrow night, as a trifle "light as air" gives way to tragedy in one of Shakespeare's most poignant plays.

(June 3) THE ROLLING ROAD SHOW New Orleans may still be on the mend after Hurricane Katrina, but Paul Sanchez & The Rolling Road Show prove there's plenty to celebrate in the Big Easy. They perform folk-rock music at the Historic Sixth & I Synagogue in Northwest D.C., joined by the big brass sass of Big Sam and the Funky Nation. All proceeds benefit Threadhead Records, a non-profit label that supports local talent in the Crescent City.
