May 22-Jun. 30: The Real Thing
The Real Thing by playwright Tom Stoppard opens tonight at The Studio Theatre in D.C. The Tony Award-winning drama explores love, commitment, and the power of clever writing. Henry is a celebrated writer whose wife Charlotte is acting in a play he wrote about marriage. But fiction is often rooted in fact, and when accusations fly, the on and off-stage relationships begin to suffer. Directed by David Muse, the play runs through June 30. 

May 22: NSO Pops: Trey Anastasio
You can see guitarist and singer Trey Anastasio play in The Kennedy Center Concert Hall tonight at 8 with the National Symphony Orchestra Pops. The musician, who is best known for his work with the genre-mixing jam band, Phish, is influenced by experimental jazz, classical music, reggae, metal, and barbershop music. Conducted by Steven Reineke, the performance will feature classic Phish songs and original Anastasio compositions. 

Music: "NICU (Instrumental)" by Phish
