Photographic portraitson exhibit at Metropol

The group show of 11 photographers from Baltimore, Washington and West Virginia includes Kathy Leaycraft, whose surrealistic images center on the female figure; Paula Tsukamoto Endo, who has been practicing photography for more than 40 years and has recorded the people and landscape of Arlington, Va., with fellow photographer Lloyd Wolf, also represented in the show; Paul Roth, who has photographed street people in Washington; and Barbara Traub, whose urban scenes, according to the artist, possess a degree of abstraction.
The exhibit will be at Metropol, 1713 N. Charles St., through Jan. 15. Metropol is open 6 p.m. to midnight Tuesdays through Sundays. Call (410) 385-3018.

Based on Lynn Riggs' play, "Green Grow the Lilacs," "Oklahoma!" is considered a musical-theater pioneer because of its seamless integration of libretto, score and choreography.
