Oct. 9-Nov. 17: dance of the holy ghosts
Starting today you can see Marcus Gardley's dance of the holy ghosts at Center Stage in Baltimore. Directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah the play centers on Oscar Clifton, a Blues man who can't escape his past mistakes and memories. But when his estranged grandson comes to visit, the old man must confront his misdeeds in order to heal and redeem himself. The poetic family drama is on stage through November 17.      

Oct. 9-27: Odysseo
Cavalia's second production, Odysseo, opens today under the White Big Top at National Harbor. Sixty-four horses and a troupe of acrobats race, prance and jump across the stage to live music in this tribute to the age-old relationship between horse and man. Equestrian and performing arts meld with high-tech theatrical effects, transforming the space into a magical realm that takes audiences on a journey around the world. You can see the show through October 27.
