(Aug. 24-25) Tragiromance
If your summer wouldn’t be complete without some outdoor William Shakespeare, there’s a re-imagined take on Romeo and Juliet performed by National Players at Olney Theatre in Maryland this Friday and Saturday. The touring troupe marks sixty-four years on the road with the Bard’s most enduring tale.

(Aug. 21-26) Elemental, my dear Watson
Eartha, Wind and Fire is also here in our region — that's the ceramics and glass show, not the band. Two artists present their latest works in each medium through Sunday at ArtWorks @ 7th Gallery in North Beach, Maryland. The ‘eartha’ portion is comprised of nature-themed blue glazed ceramic tiles, and the 'wind and fire' comes from the hand blown glass presented in brilliant technicolor.

With 'Single-Stream' Recycling, Convenience Comes At A Cost
