(Feb. 8-12) Mahogany tan, anyone?
Television’s George Hamilton takes a theatrical turn in La Cage aux Folles, closing out a run at The Kennedy Center this week. The Tony Award-winning production tells the story of a family’s struggle to stay together with music, comedy and cross-dressing.

(Feb. 9-March 12) A little more about Original Sin
The fall of man is reimagined in Genesis Reboot, opening tomorrow at Crystal City’s Synetic Theater. An angel and a demon tinker with the possibilities of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Loyalties are tested, boundaries are broken, and Cain and Abel end up sharing a prison cell through early March in the farcical play.

(Feb. 8) They believe in a thing called love
The Darkness is a band whose music is anything but dark. The British glam rock revivalists were born out of a late night karaoke session at the turn of the millennium. You can relive the 70s and 80s with their leotards, ear-piercing falsettos, big hair and bigger guitar chops tonight at the 9:30 Club in Northwest Washington.

Music: “Radio Ga Ga” by Queen
