If the crime rate spikes in Howard County, blame Shakespeare. The Bard's most violent play, "Titus Andronicus," is being staged by the Laurel-based theater company Rude Mechanicals at the Howard County Center for the Arts in Ellicott City. This production follows close on the bloody heels of the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company's outdoor staging of the same play at the Patapsco Female Institute Historic Park in 2010. Considering that "Titus Andronicus" is rarely staged anywhere, it's really unusual that local audiences have had two opportunities to be appalled by a play with such a high body count.

Forty-two years after Rembrandt's Portrait of a Boy in Fancy Dress, or Titus, made an appearance in Washington, D.C., the painting will return to the National Gallery of Art to launch a series of loan exchanges with the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, Calif.

It can be seen at the Simon museum through May 6. Future loans are under discussion; the Simon is expected to send a major work to Washington every other year and bring a National Gallery piece of equal quality to Pasadena on alternate years.

Titus Andronicus' "The Monitor" may be the first punk album inspired by Ken Burns. Patrick Stickles was aiming for big themes on the album, and he found them, improbably, in Burns' Civil War documentary: "The destructive relationship between the self and the other," he said, and "the tendency of humans to pit themselves one another as individuals and as groups. " Deep, right? It would have been, except pretension is something the band is incapable of doing.
