(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.

(March 19-28) Tight Fit

(March 21-24) Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

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.
