(March 9) Love in a Life

March is Women's History Month and the story of one 20th century woman is told in words, dance, and song Friday afternoon at St. Alban's in Northwest Washington. Ashley Alden's Love in a Life: A Dramatic Recital employs the music of Samuel Barber and Leonard Bernstein to help trace the extraordinary life of an ordinary woman from birth through old age.

(March 9-18) Love can be dark

A down-on-her-luck woman and an ill-tempered Gulf War veteran make for an unlikely couple in Blackbird, showing through March 18th at the District of Columbia Arts Center in Adams Morgan. The two work past incontinence, impotence, and hepatitis together in the name of love.

(March 5-29) The Uncivilized World

Several artists from our region explore symbols of power in KING ME: Studies in the Uncivilized World. Domination is depicted in several forms - including photography, painting, sculpture and video - until the end of March at The Fridge in Southeast Washington.
