(Jan. 23) Joshua Bell, but it will cost you

Violin virtuoso Joshua Bell once played a free set incognito at the L'Enfant Plaza Metro station. It was part of a Washington Post experiment to see whether or not anyone would notice they were walking past a world-class musician. Few did. You can see Bell take on Brahms, Ravel, Gershwin and many more tonight at The Kennedy Center, but it will cost you.

(Jan. 27-Feb. 26) Workhouse Theatre's Art

Workhouse Theatre's latest production is Art. It's not just the human application of creativity and imagination; the play is actually called "Art." A group of friends relentlessly debates the nature of art, beauty and inevitably friendship in the production running through late-February.

(Jan. 23-Mar. 11) Too Extroverted to Paint

Arlington's Artisphere has some art that may spur debate through early-March. Arlington native Amy Hughes Braden presents colorful large-scale portraits of tweens who are stuck in a world of tweets and tags in Too Extroverted to Paint.
