(April 20) ATTENTION DEFICIT THEATER If you love theater but usually find yourself restless by the third act, Washington's Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company may have the production for you. "Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind" is actually a collection of 30 productions and they're all performed in 60 minutes by Chicago's Neo-Futurists. The audience decides the sequence of the funny, poignant, and political shorts Wednesday through the first of May.

(April 20-29) THE FAT LADY SINGS Visual artist Deborah Lash explores the flexibility of the human form in "The Fat Lady Sings". The artist lost one third of her body size in a year and decided to reflect on her shape shifting by designing some surreal clothing and sculpture. Her journey from a loss to a recreation of personal identity is showing through April 29 at George Mason University's Art and Design Building in Fairfax.

(April 20) MY AFTERNOONS WITH MARGUERITTE "My Afternoons with Margueritte" screens Wednesday night at Northwest Washington's Avalon Theatre. Gérard Depardieu stars as an illiterate nice guy who befriends and proceeds to fall in love with a well-read 95-year-old.
