Mar. 24-Apr. 26: “The Originalist”

Many people in Washington are accustomed to and even entertained by “political drama,” but a new show is taking that phrase literally. “The Originalist,” a world premiere play by Charles MacArthur Award winning playwright John Strand, stars Edward Gero as Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. When a sharp, “flaming” liberal law school grad begins a clerkship with the polarizing figure, she finds that just because she vehemently disagrees with his views, doesn’t mean she can't learn from him. You can see this fictional drama at Arena Stage through April 26.

Mar. 27-Apr. 26: Jeffery Cooper

Starting this Friday, you can see a solo exhibition of wood sculptures by local artist Jeffery Cooper at VisArts at Rockville. A former college math professor, Cooper combines multiple pieces of wood into one piece, creating sculptures with different grains and figures. The artist will chat about his work at 7:30 p.m. on April 3, when there will be an opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. You can see the artwork through April 26.
