(March 19-April 15) Into the Sondheim

You can spend some time in the fantastical forests of the Brothers Grimm through mid-April at Baltimore's Center Stage. Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods brings characters from Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood, and Rapunzel together to find adventure and their way home before it gets dark.

(March 19-28) Tight Fit

For some adventure in smaller spaces Dunes Gallery in Northwest has Tight Fit through March 28th. Several District-based artists comment on urban life in limited space with small-scale paintings that wouldn't look out of place on the walls of a studio apartment.

That's the case in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, showing Wednesday through Saturday at Georgetown University's Davis Performing Arts Center. August Wilson's play explores the unrelenting realities facing an African-American blues musician in 1927.
