Mar. 25-Apr. 27: Nothing Rhymes with Orange

Thomas Müller has a new exhibit called Nothing Rhymes with Orange at Project 4 Gallery in Northwest through April 27. The multi-lingual artist uses sculpture and drawings to explore and break down language by turning words into physical works of art. Fragile, porcelain letters are arranged on the gallery floor, where they occasionally fall over and break, calling attention to the inadequacies and limitations of language.

Mar. 25-Apr. 28: 4000 Miles

When a freewheeling traveler drops by his leftist grandmother's Manhattan apartment, the young man winds up staying longer than expected. Leo arrives laden with his own baggage, intending only to spend the night. But as time passes, he and his octogenarian host form a bond that transcends age and lifts both of their spirits a little higher. 4000 Miles by Amy Herzog runs through April 28 at Studio Theatre in D.C.

Music: "Orange Crush (Instrumental)" by R.E.M.
