Mar. 31-Apr. 13: Loveland
Have you ever found yourself on an airplane, unable to go anywhere apart from your destination, and the person seated next to you just won’t shut up? In Loveland, Ann Randolph plays Frannie Potts, an irreverent, eccentric “artiste”, who’s flying to Ohio for a family member’s funeral. In this one woman show, Randolph cycles through a host of characters, including a peppy flight attendant, a grouchy businessman, and our heroine’s sassy, but aging, mother. You can check out the show and a post-performance writing workshop at Arena Stage through April 13.

Apr. 2: Sirens of Spring Tour
This Wednesday you can head out to Jammin Java in Vienna at 7:30 p.m. for the Sirens of Spring Tour. You’ll hear acoustic rock-blues played by Baltimore-based duo Mama’s Black Sheep, while vocalist Christine Havrilla will bring her indie-country sound to the table. The concert will also include a performance by D.C. local Laura Tsaggaris, who blends alt-rock with contemporary folk music.
