Pallas Theatre Collective presents The Fall of the House of Usher: A New Musical. Struggling artist James Cleary is summoned to the Usher mansion to paint a portrait of his childhood friend, Roderick Usher, who is convinced that both he and his sister Madeline will soon fall victim to a fatal family curse. But once the painter arrives at the decaying residence, he discovers there is something more sinister at work. Written by Molly Fox and Sarah Hirsch, the show is based on Edgar Allan Poe’s short story of the same name. You can check it out at Anacostia Arts Center through August 24.
R&B vocal group Boyz II Men is still touring and harmonizing, albeit as a trio. Originally a quartet, the band achieved recognition in the ‘90s for soulful songs such as “On Bended Knee,” “Water Runs Dry” and “The End of the Road.” The Grammy Award-winning group performs tonight at 8 at The Fillmore.
