Well, the Oscars are over, so you can stop your vain attempt to see all the nominated movies -- a disappointing lot of them blew anyway -- and do something more interesting with your weekend days and nights. Like what, you ask? Going to a different kind of theater for a change, for example. Where, you ask? That's what we're here for.

at the African American Art and Culture Center
Details are a tad sketchy on this show, but it sounds interesting nonetheless: billed as a play-within-a-play, this is based on a real-life African-American theater company putting on a production of Richard III. We're really not sure what that means, actually -- and we have to say that it makes the $30 ticket a little less enticing ($25 students and seniors). But we thought you should know about it anyway, since it doesn't really seem to have gotten much attention in the traditional channels. Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., with Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Through March 20.
