(April 8-9) AS IT IS WRITTEN, SO SHALL IT SHALL BE DONE For more prose and a little poetry there's As Was Written Friday night and Saturday at the Lyceum in Alexandria. Local writers are joined by comics and musicians for a celebration of wordcraft.

(April 8-10) MUSIC FOR THE MASSES As per usual, the region is teeming with music for all ears this weekend. College Park's Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center has Rossini's magnum opus opera The Barber of Seville Friday night and again on Sunday, there's bluegrass Friday night at The Corner Store in Southeast Washington, and theatrical jazz Sunday afternoon in Takoma Park. Killer Stilts bring its brand of dressed up jazz and comical dialogue to the Takoma Auditorium.

(April 9) ART, BUT ALSO ICE CREAM AND CAKE Silver Spring's Pyramid Atlantic Art Center celebrates 30 years of existence tomorrow. There will be live music and art, but also ice cream and cake.
