(March 22-April 1) Two shots at Shakespeare
You have several shots at Shakespeare this weekend. The Maryland Shakespeare Festival presents Much Ado About Nothing, The Merchant of Venice, and Julius Caesar at Frederick’s All Saints Episcopal Church as part of its Bare Bard in REP series. And Washington’s Molotov Theatre Group presents a decidedly bloodier take on Julius Caesar through April 7 at The Shop in Northwest. A few twists that involve another famous literary work are thrown into the tragic story.

(March 22-May 13) I Only Have Eyes For Hirshhorn
Californian multimedia artist Doug Aitken is having his way with the exterior of the Hirshhorn Museum on the National Mall. For the next eight weeks, much of the cylindrical building will be covered in 360-degree projections of street dancers, gospel singers, and actress Tilda Swinton, among other things. The soundtrack to Aitken’s study of performance is provided by a diverse group of musicians covering “I Only Have Eyes For You.”

(March 23) Ethan Bortnick And His Musical Time Machine
Pianist Ethan Bortnick covers a diverse group of musicians tomorrow night at Strathmore in North Bethesda. The dynamic musician takes on everyone from Bach to Billy Joel. And he’s eleven years-old.

Music: “All My Friends” by LCD Soundsystem
