June 11-July 13: Private Lives

Divorcés Amanda and Elyot have finally moved on from their failed marriage and are each on their honeymoon, eager to start fresh with their respective, new partners. But that becomes difficult when the exes realize they're staying in adjacent rooms. In this comedy by Noël Coward, the former flames must decide whether to kindle their old spark or if it's best to extinguish it forever. Then again, they might not have a choice. Private Lives is at Shakespeare Theater Company’s Lansburgh Theater through July 13.

June 11-July 3: Black President and Other Paintings

A solo exhibit of recent paintings by Wayson R. Jones goes on view today at BlackRock Center for the Arts in Germantown. Black President and Other Paintings includes a monochromatic series in which the artist approaches portraiture through the process of dripping, pouring, glazing and scraping black, white and gray paint. Working in response to policy decisions, Jones aims to evoke a range of emotions, from empathy to anger. You can see the body of work through July 3.
