May 8 to 11: Blue Man Group

Music, art, comedy and a whole lot of color collide on stage at The National Theatre, where Blue Man Group is performing through Sunday. In the high-energy, carefully synchronized performance, three alien-looking men painted blue perform nonverbal skits ranging from a dinner party to the limitations of communication in the digital age. Backed up by a live band, the trio bangs on drums and pipes, plays with paint, and gets a hand from audience members, who aren't safe from some light teasing.

May 8 to June 7: Polymer on the Wall

Local artist Fran Abrams applies her love of math and geometry to the canvas in Polymer on the Wall, an exhibit of framed pieces with sculptural qualities. The Rockville resident uses colorful pieces of polymer clay, a manmade substance that she blends using a pasta machine. The flattened pieces are then cut, manipulated and assembled to achieve the final product. The exhibit is at Bethesda's Waverly Street Gallery through June 7.
