Jun. 24-Aug. 11: One Night With Janis Joplin
In case you missed it the first time around, you have a second opportunity to see One Night With Janis Joplin at Arena Stage. Helen Hayes Award nominee Mary Bridget Davies reprises her role as the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll in this high-energy, high-volume performance. Featuring classic hits such as “Piece of My Heart”, “Me and Bobby McGee” and “Cry Baby”, the play also dips into the Blues and Broadway music that inspired Janis Joplin. Written and directed by Randy Johnson, this rock ‘n’ roll play is on stage through August 11.

Jun. 24-Aug. 18: 360 Degrees of Post-Traumatic Stress
A new exhibit, 360 Degrees of Post-Traumatic Stress, is on view at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton through August 18. The exhibit presents sculpture and works on paper by active military service members and veterans, as they provide an often unseen view of PTSD. The artists are soldiers in transition at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Fort Belvoir Community Hospital.

Music: “Pearl (Instrumental)” by Janis Joplin
