(Feb. 7-26) Elephant Room
Three deluded illusionists take a mystical trip in Elephant Room, showing through the end of February at Washington’s Arena Stage. The comedy is something like a bizarre Styx reunion tour set in a trailer park with off-the-wall magic tricks, which is to say it’s unlike anything you’ve ever witnessed.
(Feb. 7-Jan. 2013) Dragons, Nagas and Creatures of the Deep
There’s more magic at the Textile Museum in Northwest Washington for the rest of the year. Dragons, Nagas and Creatures of the Deep celebrates the East Asian calendar’s Year of the Dragon with playful and colorful depictions of the legendary creature, from Eastern snake forms to Western beastly manifestations.
(Feb. 7-April 5) Walk down the lane with a happy refrain
For some classic silver screen magic AFI Silver in Silver Spring celebrates the musicals of Gene Kelly through early April. You can sing along in the rain next week or catch Kelly with Rita Hayworth in Cover Girl tonight.
Music: “Come Sail Away” by Styx
