Happy 2012! If you’re looking to kick off the new year with something… new Time Stands Still opens Wednesday at Northwest Washington’s Studio Theatre. The timely drama by Pulitzer Prize Winning playwright Donald Margulies follows an injured photojournalist returning from Iraq as she realizes many of the images in her head cannot be erased. The heroine is forced to confront her past as well as some relationship drama through mid-February.

If you’re all about looking back Bethesda’s Waverly Street Gallery opens Memories tomorrow. The collection mostly features ceramic bowls by local artist Karin Abromaitis who incorporates metal and found objects into her works.
