Marley Dawson: Statics and Dynamics goes on view tomorrow at HEMPHILL Fine Arts in Northwest, where you can check it out through March 29.

You can see Bill Irwin and Mark O’Donnell’s modern adaptation of Molière's classic farce Scapin performed at Source Theatre through February 16. Directed by Kathryn Chase Bryer, this Constellation Theatre Company production is set to live music and follows the endlessly crafty servant Scapin and his not-so-bright sidekick Sylvestre as they help their two young masters marry penniless beauties against both fathers’ wishes. You can attend a pay-what-you-can preview of this comedy tonight at 8:30 or tomorrow at 8.
