Arena has the production through mid-June, when it leaves the District for Broadway.

(May 13-22) THE CLOCKMAKER Hub Theatre's "The Clockmaker" is part murder mystery, part comical love story. It's about a man, who just wants to repair his cuckoo clock, but ends up in a race against time. John Swayze Theatre in Fairfax has the play through the end of next week.
