Jun. 12-23: The Chemical View: Alternative Process Photography
The artdc Gallery in Hyattsville presents The Chemical View, an exhibit of alternative-process photography. The show features handmade prints made by eight local artists who use a variety of processing methods to produce old school photographs such as tintypes, ambrotypes, and hand-painted liquid emulsion prints. You can see this visual display of the chemistry behind the photographic process through June 23.

Jun. 12-22: Romeo and Juliet
You can see Romeo and Juliet at the Atlas Performing Arts Center in Northeast through June 22. Time flies and so do tempers in this fast-paced play that follows Juliet on a four-day journey from adolescence to womanhood and ultimately, her tragic death. 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.

Music: Fyne feat. Chill – Romeo And Juliet (Instrumental) by Sylk
