Oct. 21-Dec. 1: Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet, the classic tragedy by William Shakespeare, is on stage at Folger Theatre through December 1. Directed by three-time Helen Hayes Award-winner Aaron Posner, the play follows two young people who fall hopelessly in love despite being on opposite sides of a bitter family feud. Both blood and tears are shed as the star-crossed lovers struggle against overwhelming adversity.

Oct. 21-Nov. 5: Still Magic-Desolate Tears
Syra Arts presents a solo exhibition of new work by photographer Amr Mounib at the Alla Rogers Gallery in Northwest through November 5.  Still Magic - Desolate Tears features photos taken by Mounib as he travelled in his native Egypt between 2007 and 2011. The collection captures the stillness and purity of the empty spaces that, at another time, would have been filled with people.
