(March 23-24) IN GOOD COMPANY
The Paul Taylor Dance Company is known for consistently breaking new ground by consistently busting new moves.

(March 23-April 3) THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL
There isn't much dancing in Horton Foote's "The Trip to Bountiful", but there's plenty of heart. Widow Carrie Watts spends most of her day dreaming about leaving the Houston apartment she shares with her son and self-absorbed daughter-in-law. And then, she does. But it's about the journey not the destination. The Trip lasts through early April at Round House Theatre in Bethesda.
(March 23-May 15) PHILIP GUSTON, MEET PHILLIPS COLLECTION
If you wouldn't mind a trip to Rome, but can't swing the airfare, the next best and closest thing might be Philip Guston's Roma at The Phillips Collection in Northwest Washington through mid-May. The late American painter's playful pink cartoon-like pictures evoke the art and culture of Italy in the early 70s.
