Mar. 26-Apr. 12: HAIR
You can see the rock musical HAIR at The Keegan Theatre through April 12. Set in the 1960s, the play follows a group of teenagers on their search for truth, peace and love in Vietnam War era America. HAIR includes nudity and language that may not be appropriate for children, and those under the age of 14 will not be allowed to attend.

Mar. 26-Apr. 5: Serendipity
It’s not too late to see Serendipity, an exhibit of figurative and abstract paintings by local artist Ann Deutermann, at Waverly Street Gallery in Bethesda. To demonstrate the evolution of her personal style, the artist creates mixed media pieces by layering torn digital images of her earlier paintings with paint, newsprint, cheesecloth, sea glass and other materials. You can see the work through April 5.

Music: “Fortunate Son - Instrumental” by Lyle Workman & Forest Rangers
