(April 10-May 13) The Whipping Man

Faith, race, and the Civil War make for an interesting night at a makeshift Seder table in The Whipping Man, showing at Baltimore's Center Stage through mid-May. Three Richmond Jews--one a former Confederate solider, two his former slaves--tackle age-old questions about justice and freedom. They end up finding some new and surprising answers.

(April 9) Gotta Have Faith

Washington's Forum Theatre company invites local artists to explore faith in all things unseen tonight at Round House Theatre in Silver Spring. Gotta Have Faith features a number of 10-minute multimedia works centered on our beliefs in community, caffeine, government, ghosts, and more.

(April 9) Alone Together

Three musicians used to blending into very different genres step into the spotlight tonight at IOTA Club & Cafe in Arlington. Jazz drummer Billy Martin from Medeski Martin and Wood is joined by Arcade Fire violinist Sarah Neufeld and indie rock pianist Gregory Rogove to go it alone, together.
