(January 31-March 25) Examining Generation Me
An elite university is the setting for Really, Really, a comic tragedy at Arlington’s Signature Theatre tonight. It’s the world premiere of the play by Paul Downs Colaizzo that asks how far people will go…no matter what the cost. Really, Really  is intended for mature audiences and runs through late March.

(February 1) Art Conservation 101
The Smithsonian American Art Museum is offering help for that painting or sculpture that’s been gathering dust in the attic. Experts will be on hand at a clinic tomorrow to assess the condition of your art and to explain how best to preserve it.  There’s no cost for this service, but appointments are required.

(February 1-March 31)
The landscape of Northern Virginia is the inspiration for Everitt Clark’s new photography exhibit, “Night and Day,” opening tomorrow at Artisphere in Arlington.  Clark seeks beauty in the banal with photos of an abandoned gas station, scraps of plastic caught in a tree, and street lamps on a lonely boulevard.
