Jun. 12-23: The Chemical View: Alternative Process Photography
The artdc Gallery in Hyattsville presents The Chemical View, an exhibit of alternative-process photography.

Jun. 12-22: Romeo and Juliet

This Brave Spirits Theatre production is delivered in the company’s high-energy, ensemble style, which adds a sense of urgency to the classic tale of young love and sacrifice.
