    I See You. You're Seen.

    Told from the perspective of a former little Black girl, this solo work – written and performed by Oktavea LaToi, directed by Simone Raquel Alexander – is a fusion of art, poetry, music, and movement that investigates what it means "to see and be seen, to see and be forgotten" through the lens of healing, Blackness, and self-reflection, while also challenging others who "look the other way."
    Through March 11. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 6pm. $15-37.

    Nightbird

    In R. Eric Thomas' newly commissioned play, Chelle, an artist, has recently purchased her childhood home in Baltimore; her brother Willard is working on refurbishing it. But the home renovation takes a backseat as Willard prepares for a Juneteenth festival in the adjacent park and Chelle struggles with a recent commission: What should be built in place of a recently removed Confederate monument?
    Through March 25. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 2pm. $34-38 (Thu., pick your price).

    Pageant

    Robert Longbottom's musical play (with lyrics by Bill Russell and Frank Kelly, music by Albert Evans) is like no beauty pageant you’ve ever seen before. Six contestants (all played by men), vying for the title of Miss Glamouresse, will compete in swimsuit, talent, gown, and spokesmodel categories. And judges selected from the audience get to pick the winner – so no performance is ever the same, and omg the suspense is real!
    Through March 18. Thu.-Fri., 8pm; Sat., 2 & 8pm. $30-50.
