Tiger Style!: Political correctness flies out the window in this satire about stereotypes. Two Chinese-American siblings search for their authentic selves. Albert Chen is a computer programmer so modest he lets others take credit for his work. His sister Jennifer, a doctor, is so professionally driven she can’t sustain a relationship. Despite their Ivy League educations, musical virtuosity and impeccable manners, the siblings mount a delayed adolescent rebellion against their disappointed Tiger Mother. Runs now through August 18 at Olney Theatre Center, 2001 Olney-Sandy Spring Road. For more information, click here. $59-$64.

Public Piano Grand Opening Concert:  Takoma Park now has a piano at the downtown gazebo and invites the public to come for the grand opening concert.
