(Oct. 27-Nov. 20) Extremity theater

Washington's Constellation Theatre Company stages George Bernard Shaw's Arms and the Man through late November. A young woman fantasizes about the bravery of her heroic fiancé until the reality of war bursts into her bedroom in the form of an enemy soldier. The witty comedy tackles hard truths about romanticism, class and the idealization of war.

(Oct. 25) Star Slinger

UK producer Star Slinger brings buoyant beats to the U Street Music Hall tomorrow night. The hyped DJ makes throwing vintage soul vocals over complex drumbeats look easy.

Washington's West End Cinema screens 3 through Thursday. The German film from the director of Run Lola Run focuses on a loving, restless couple living together in Berlin. Both husband and wife separately fall in love with the same man on the eve of their 20-year wedding anniversary.
