Apr. 26-May 26: Other Desert Cities
Homecomings and family reunions don't always go too well. In Other Desert Cities, Brooke returns to her conservative parents' home in Palm Springs after a six-year absence. But the mood changes after Brooke's parents learn their prodigal daughter's soon-to-be-released memoir dishes out some top-secret family dirt. The play opens tonight at Arena Stage in Southwest, and runs through May 26.

Apr. 26-May 7: Alchemical Vessels
A new exhibit called Alchemical Vessels opens today at the Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery at Smith Center for Healing + the Arts on U Street. Inspired by the alchemical process, the exhibit features pieces by more than 100 local artists, who each channeled their personal style and medium to transform a plain, ceramic bowl into a work of art. Does art have restorative powers? You can decide for yourself through May 7.

Music: "Secret - Instrumental" by Maroon 5
