(Oct. 18-Nov. 27) Othello all over
Whether you’re on Capitol Hill or in Crystal City or anywhere in between you’re close enough to a presentation of Othello well into November. The Folger Theatre opens a traditional take on the Bard’s tragedy today and Synetic Theater opens a speechless, highly choreographed version tomorrow.

(Oct. 18-Nov. 27) Tyrannical Rex
For more tragedy Scena Theatre has Greek through late November. The modern day take on Oedipus Rex sets the action in London where a rags-to- riches existence is threatened by the European debt crisis.

(Oct. 18) Less tragic
1957’s Sweet Smell of Success screens tonight at the AFI Silver in Silver Spring. Burt Lancaster plays a highly-feared New York columnist who uses his connections to ruin his sister’s relationship in the satirical film noir.

Music: “Life’s Been Good” by Joe Walsh
