(April 21-May 7) IF YOU CALL, ART WILL ANSWER Visual artists and authors collaborate in "Call + Response", showing at Hamiltonian Gallery in Northwest Washington through early May. Writers hand short fiction and poetry off to the artists, who draw inspiration from the works as they create installations.

(April 21-May 29) THE REAL HOUND IS FOUND Alexandria's MetroStage houses a meta-murder mystery through the end of May. Tom Stoppard's "The Real Inspector Hound" tells the story of two theater critics who laugh at the ludicrous setup of a country house whodunit, only to find themselves involved in a series of events that parallel the outlandish production.

(April 22) DAGAR'S DHRUPAD As far as Indian vocal music goes it doesn't get any older than dhrupad. The term roughly translates to "fixed words" and vocalists tend to take their time with their notes so that makes good sense. The tradition found itself on the brink of extinction until it was saved by the Dagar Brothers and a few other families in the 1960s. Wasif Dagar keeps the family business alive Friday night at the Gandhi Memorial Center in Bethesda.
