March 14 to 30: "Happily Ever After"
Ambassador Theater presents the world premiere of "Happily Ever After" at CulturalDC’s Flashpoint Gallery in Northwest. Spanish playwright Cristina Colmena says the show is about love, the struggle to be happy, and the gaps in communication that often occur in relationships.

"Because of the movies and the novels, we have that image of what love should be, and finally life is not so easy. It’s like a struggle," Colmena says. "You have to try one day and another day and sometimes there are disappointments and sometimes there is loss."

The play is directed by Hanna Bondarewska and runs through March 30.
