(March 27-April 31) A play with pokes

If you're one of the few people out there looking for a little more Facebook in your life, Lost Belongings aka The Facebook Play is staged tonight through Saturday at The Arts Club of Washington and the D.C. Arts Center in Northwest Washington. Two former lovers reunite on the social network and search for their lost selves with the help of technology.

(March 29-April 7)

Another technology lover gets the theater treatment at George Mason University in Fairfax through early April. Germen dramatist Bertolt Brecht's The Life of Galileo tells the tale of Galileo Galilei's telescopic discoveries and the controversies they caused. The play stays faithful to the revolutionary's science while taking a few liberties with his personal life.

(March 27-April 28) Glittering Machines

Providence-based sculptor Paul Myoda takes a techy approach to visual art in Glittering Machines, showing at Northwest's Project 4 Gallery through the end of April. Myoda makes kinetic, interactive, and illuminating sculptures that explore how computers work with the human body and blur the line between the animate and the inanimate worlds.
