(Sept. 28-Oct. 30) Les Mis
Les Misérables celebrates year 25 with a month-long run at the Kennedy Center beginning today. The new staging of the legendary musical covers three turbulent decades of 19th century French history with sets inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo.

(Sept. 28) Romero Britto
Adams Morgan’s Skynear Gallery has the colorful, cubist paintings and prints of Romero Britto on permanent display as of this week. The internationally acclaimed Brazilian artist blends the styles of Andy Warhol and Pablo Picasso for a final product that looks pretty original. 

(Sept. 28-Oct. 22) Meditations, Abstractions, and Distractions
Local artist Carolee Jakes uses paint, pieces of instruments and recycled sari yarn spun by a women’s cooperative in India in her abstract portraits of musicians and the women in her family. The works are presented in Meditations, Abstractions, and Distractions at Studio Gallery in Northwest Washington through late October.
