Jan. 1-12: The King and I
It’s not too late to see Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The King and I at Olney Theatre Center. The venue has extended the show’s run through January 12, so you have a little extra time to see this musical about a young English widow who travels to Siam to tutor the King’s children. There, she gets a heavy dose of culture shock , but nevertheless learns to understand and respect local traditions as the King begins to open his mind to Western customs.

Jan. 1-12: Edgar & Annabel
You can see Edgar & Annabel at The Studio Theatre in Northwest through January 12. Written by Sam Holcroft and directed by Holly Twyford, the play follows Edgar and Annabel, who are living a lie, but one that could save their country. The dark and cheeky show features karaoke, surveillance algorithms and undercover agents.

Music: “Overture (From “The King and I”)” by Franz Allers
