(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. 24) Good or bad, happy or sad
For some romance without any sign of tragedy, Al Green plays Wolf Trap in Vienna Friday night. The Reverend brings his early soul, his later spiritual, and everything in between. Bluesmaster Taj Mahal helps get things started with his genre-bending jams.

(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.
