A classic con-man thinks about going straight in The Music Man at Arena Stage through late July.

(May 20) Does not include killer whale
New York’s Harlem KW Project brings Renaissance in the Belly of a Killer Whale to BusBoys and Poets on 5th and K in Northwest Washington this Sunday. The production features three women coming to terms with the gentrification of Harlem through a montage of poetry, theater, dance, and song.
