Feb. 24-Mar. 2: Seminar
It’s not too late to see the D.C. area premiere of Seminar by Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck. The comedy follows four aspiring young novelists who sign up for private lessons with an internationally-acclaimed literary figure, but find themselves learning more about survival than writing in a classroom climate rife with rivalries and unorthodox teaching methods. Directed by Jerry Whiddon, the play is on stage at Round House Theatre in Bethesda through March 2.

Feb. 24-Mar. 15: HomoCats: Fight the Power
It’s no secret that the Internet has a soft spot for felines. Brooklyn-based artist J. Morrison decided to explore the abundance of online cat culture and the intersection of art and activism in his large-scale installation HomoCats: Fight the Power, which is on view at Transformer in Northwest through March 15. The artist uses drawings, prints and slogans to address socio-political concerns and voice his opposition to certain phobias and stereotypes.
