STUDIO THEATRE’S production of “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead” features the band of actors who perform the famous “play within the play” of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” among many other antics. Led by Floyd King in the foreground, they include (left to right) Falls Church’s Miles Butler, Theo Hadjimichael, Tim Lueke, Nick Stevens and Dan Istrate. (Courtesy photo)

Kirov Ballet’s “Romeo and Juliet,” Kennedy Center, performances through Sunday.
