Dec. 17-29: Noises Off
What can go wrong on stage? Everything. After watching a farce from the wings, playwright Michael Frayn decided to write a show about the drama that can occur behind the scenes. Directed by Doug Wilder, Noises Off follows a troupe of “manic misfits” on the opening night of a performance, as they flub lines, forget props and miss their cues. But of course, the show must go on. You can see the play-within-a-play through December 29 at 1st Stage in Tyson’s Corner.

Dec. 17-Apr. 27, 2014: Nelson Mandela: Character, Comrade, Leader, Prisoner, Negotiator, Statesman
You can see the U.S. debut of Nelson Mandela: Character, Comrade, Leader, Prisoner, Negotiator, Statesman, a photographic exhibit, at Howard University’s Moorland-Spingarn Research Center through April 27. Curated and produced by the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg, South Africa, the exhibit traces the trajectory of Mandela’s life from revolutionary to peacemaker to president.
