Nov. 4-10: Sister Act
Sister Mary Clarence isn’t your average nun. Well, technically that’s because she isn’t a nun, or a Catholic, or even a church-going woman. She’s a sassy lounge singer who has to hide in a convent after witnessing a murder. In Sister Act, the not-so-devoted diva leads a choir to higher standards while trying, and failing to lie low. You can see the musical at [The Kennedy Center] (http://www.kennedy-center.org/index.cfm>) through November 10.

Nov. 4-24: The Summoning of Everyman
A 500-year-old play is now on stage at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in Northwest. The Edge of the Universe Players 2 presents The Summoning of Everyman, a medieval morality play featuring characters such as Goods, God, Everyman, Knowledge and more. Stephen Jarrett directs this show about life, death and salvation, which you can see through November 24.

Music: “Redemption Song” by Reggae Philharmonic Orchestra
