(April 18-22) Who are you calling a shrew?
Washington’s Synetic Theater is one of many local companies to favor the works of one William Shakespeare, but it’s the only one to ditch the Bard’s muscular words in favor of muscular aerialists and dancers. Synetic stages The Taming of the Shrew with big beats and bold moves through the end of the week at the Lansburgh Theatre in downtown D.C.

(April 17-19) And now for something completely different…
If you didn’t come across any killer bunnies over Easter you will find them and so much more satirical fun at the AFI Silver in Silver Spring this week. The cinema screens Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life tonight, And Now For Something Completely Different and Life of Brian tomorrow, and closes out its series with Monty Python and the Holy Grail on Thursday.

(April 18-May 20) Sex, spring, and satire
For some satirical visual art, Adah Rose Gallery in Kensington opens The Birds and the Bees tomorrow. Husband and wife painting duo Dana Ellyn and Matt Sesow take on politics and personal injury with dozens of portraits of bird-like and human-like birds.
