(August 10-September 26) SIGNATURE’S CHESS The name belies the raucous night of musical theater in store, but Chess brings the heat to Arlington’s Signature Theatre tonight through September. Tim Rice’s tale of a Cold War love triangle that plays out on a chessboard includes the Broadway rock of "One Night in Bangkok" and "Pity the Child."

(August 10-August 2011) CHINAMANIA And if a manic musical isn’t enough for you, there’s an entire year of Chinamania taking place at the Smithsonian’s Freer Gallery of Art on the National Mall now through next August. The exhibit delves into the significance of Chinese porcelain in Victorian England, where it went from being a source of aesthetic inspiration to a status symbol.

(August 10-22) THE SAVANNAH DISPUTATION If you’re looking for a divine comedy, Olney Theatre continues to stage The Savannah Disputation tonight through August 22 in Montgomery County. The one-act play follows a pentecostal missionary and two Catholic faithfuls through a devilish dinner party that turns into a smack-down of biblical proportions.
