Apr. 21-May 31: Aviary
You can take off to 410 GooDBuddY gallery on Florida Avenue in Northwest through May 31 to see an exhibit featuring bird-related sculpture and drawings by D.C.-based artist Mariah Josephy. The exhibit includes two-dozen drawings and small sculptures made from a variety of materials, plus a “flock” of 20 black, rubber birds that hang in a “v”-formation across the gallery ceiling.

Apr. 21-Jun. 8: Henry IV
You can see Parts 1 and 2 of Henry IV at The Shakespeare Theatre Company, which is presenting the two plays in repertory through June 8. The Prince of Wales is young, wild and a bit irresponsible. Part 1 follows the heir apparent on his educational journey from a rowdy tavern to the battlefield. In Part 2, the king’s imminent death pushes the prince to clean up his act and prove his reckless ways are behind him. Stacy Keach stars as the booze-swilling, braggart Falstaff, who provides comic relief in this pair of plays, directed by Michael Kahn.

Music: “Little Bird (instrumental)” by Imogen Heap
