Aug. 23-31: FAME
The Metropolitan Performing Arts Theater’s ensemble cast presents FAME today through August 31 at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton. The musical is set in a high school for the performing arts and follows a diverse group of students as they grind through four years of artistic and academic work. The characters deal with prejudice, issues of identity and self-worth, substance abuse, their budding sexualities, and other topics that continue to confront young people today.

Aug. 24: The New Vintage Jazz & Wine Fest
D.C.’s first jazz and wine festival runs from 2 to 10 p.m. tomorrow at the D.C. Fairgrounds, across the street from Nationals Park. The New Vintage Jazz & Wine Fest features modern and classic jazz performances, which you can enjoy while sampling more than a dozen world-class wines. Art Whino will host two live painting stations where artists will create large-scale pieces for silent auction.
