Ever wondered what happens after "happily ever after"? Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's "Into the Woods" artfully explores the answer, skillfully interweaving several classic fairy tales into one epic story that goes beyond the happy endings to show what happens when a fairy-tale world gets real. This modern twist on the Brothers Grimm brings together Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (of beanstalk fame), a Baker, his Wife and, of course, the Witch. The beloved storybook characters take on unexpected complexity as they discover that wishes come with a price. Witches, wolves, giants and mysterious strangers force the heroes to face the music -- and their future in a world where everything doesn't always end happily. The young actors of Laurel Mill Playhouse, ranging in age from 8 to 18, bring to life this humorous and heartfelt chase through the woods in a junior version perfect for families. [less-]

Two thoroughly modern operas that reach into the storied past for inspiration, "The Juniper Tree" and "Bastianello" come to The Barns in an all-new production courtesy of Wolf Trap Opera. "Bastianello", a 2008 one-act comedy-drama by John Musto, is based on an Italian folktale and follows a newly-married groom on a search for a more foolish family than his own after they embarrass him at his disastrous wedding. Philip Glass and Robert Moran wrote the score for "The Juniper Tree", a grim Grimm fairy tale that somehow serves up a happy ending out of a story about a Wicked Stepmother who murders her stepson and cooks him up in a stew. "The New York Times" called it "charming and chilling, a children's opera for thinking children (also known as 'adults.')" The talented company performs this double bill in English with projected text. [less-]

When Stephen Sondheim first brought "A Little Night Music" to the stage in 1973, the musical's elegance and charm led to four Tony Award wins. Now its Sweden-set tale of a tangled web of affairs comes to Arlington in a new production at Signature Theatre. Centered around the charismatic actress Desirée Armfeldt, "A Little Night Music" follows one terribly complicated weekend in the country, where lovers, ex-lovers, wives and husbands all come together, and seemingly endless possibilities for new romances and second chances bring plenty of surprises. Witty and filled with deeply touching moments of regret and desire, "A Little Night Music" also features one of Sondheim's most popular songs, the haunting "Send in the Clowns." [less-]

In "Measure for Measure", Shakespeare's striking, gritty and yet somehow comedic drama, sex and politics collide, sparking the tale of a young woman who's forced to choose between her own principles and her brother's life, following an unplanned pregnancy in the wake of a ban on all pre-wedded sexual shenanigans. But just how far will she really go to save his life? Shakespeare's works are famous for countless reasons, including the fact that they remain relevant even though they were written during a time when women weren't allowed to perform them. Well, now The Britches and Hose Shakespeare Company spins that archaic time on its head with its own gender-blind productions, in which men and women play the male and female parts indiscriminately. Don't miss "Measure for Measure" when it comes to Tysons. [less-]

You probably know the meme of the cartoon dog surrounded by flames and declaring: "This is fine." But you might not know this classic work that may as well have inspired it. Mild-mannered Mr. Biederman tries to live a blameless life, refusing to acknowledge evil of any kind -- even as the world around him burns. The facade comes crashing down when he allows two smooth-talking guests to move in to his home and they start filling his attic with petrol drums. Part moral fable and part black farce, Alistair Beaton's "The Arsonists" is an elegant, witty translation of Max Frisch's 1958 absurdist comedy "The Firebugs", which was inspired by the Communist takeover of Czechoslovakia in 1948 and satirizes the way in which people can be manipulated into accommodating their own destruction.

Celebrity architect Frank Lloyd Wright made his mark on the design world with over 1,000 designed structures, many of which remain as preserved, highly regarded homes in Los Angeles. Does cheating dismiss the work of this genius?

While both parties left their spouses, the couple was under constant public ridicule until Cheney's murder by fire.
