Mar. 11-30: Normal
You can see Molotov Theatre Group’s production of Normal by Anthony Neilson at the DC Arts Center in Adams Morgan through March 30. Set in Germany during the 1920s and 30s, this “vaudevillian fever dream” is based on the true story of serial killer Peter Kurten, aka the “Dusseldorf Ripper.” Company co-founder and resident “goremeister” Alex Zavistovich says that, surprisingly, there’s no blood in this morbid show. “But don’t let that keep you from coming,” he says, “because there’s plenty of weirdness and gigantic scissors.”

Mar. 12: Freedom Riders
Tomorrow night at 6 you can head to New York University’s D.C. campus to see a one-night-only photography exhibition, followed by a screening of Stanley Nelson’s documentary Freedom Riders. After the film, there will be a panel discussion about photojournalism’s role in historical movements. The event is free, but be sure to register online to secure your spot.
