Guys and Dolls takes over Wolf Trap in Vienna tomorrow. Depression-era New York City comes to life on the Filene Center stage with the help of some crooks, cops and Christians. The classic musical comedy is staged through the end of the weekend.

E-CO is showing at American University's Katzen Arts Center through the end of the weekend, too. The gallery showcases the work of over twenty photography collectives from Latin America and Europe. The groups were tasked with defining "environment" with visual essays and submitted a wide range of images including natural landscapes and man-made structures.
