(Sept. 20-Oct. 21) An Enemy of the People
Arthur Miller's An Enemy of the People is playing at Baltimore's Centerstage through mid-October. The master playwright's take on Henrik Ibsen's classic asks whether the good of some outweighs the good of the rest.

(Sept. 20-March 31) Wall for Peace
The next time you're at Dulles you can appreciate a monument to the good in everyone. D.C. artist Anil Revri's Wall for Peace is situated at the junction of concourses A and B through the end of March. The monolith is a block of scrolling LED lights that displays calls for peace from the texts of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and Sikhism.

(Sept. 21-23) Cavernous dance
Washington's Dana Tai Soon Burgess & Company typically focuses on characters or spirits on journeys, but it's dancing to a different tune to close out its 20th anniversary season: Caverns explores the topic of memory all weekend at George Washington University's Dorothy Betts Marvin Theatre in Northwest.  If that doesn't sound very memorable to you, a few of the company's classic character studies will be thrown in for good measure.
