Sept. 4-Oct. 13: Torch Song Trilogy
Starting tomorrow you can head to The Studio Theatre in Northwest to see Harvey Fierstein’s Torch Song Trilogy. Directed by Michael Kahn, the Tony Award-winning play follows Arnold Beckoff, who just wants to have a real, loving relationship. Armed with a fierce sense of humor, he abandons the backrooms of New York’s gay bar scene and embarks on his quest for intimacy and respect. You can see the production through October 13.

Sept. 4-29: Menagerie
Animal and art lovers alike might be interested in a new exhibit that opens tomorrow at ArtSpace Herndon. Menagerie brings together paintings and sculpture that explore the fun nature of animals. You can see pieces such as a panda made from found materials, a zebra re-imagined in vibrant red-orange hues and a serene painting of two horses in a field. The collection features work by five artists and will be on view through September 29.
