This Week's Critics' Picks

Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Ferrante, The Awful Truth.


When Frank Ferrante does Groucho Marx, all the old shtick—the loping crouch, the rolling eyes, the cigar, the greasepaint mustache—comes back to life. See this man. He is comic genius. 7:30 p.m. Wed., Feb. 22. $15. Bainbridge Performing Arts Playhouse, 200 Madison Ave. N., Bainbridge Island, 206-842-8569, ROGER DOWNEY


Cary Grant and Irene Dunne play a wonderfully combative pair waiting for their divorce to become final in the 1937 screwball comedy The Awful Truth. Do they still love each other? Obviously—or they wouldn't continue to quarrel so much. Fri., Feb. 24–Thurs., March 2. $5–$7.50. Grand Illusion Cinema, 1403 N.E. 50th St., 206-523-3935, BRIAN MILLER


Prints by the famed pop artist Roy Lichtenstein, 1956–97, come to Seattle from the Jordan D. Schnitzer family collection. 11 a.m.–5 p.m. Tues., Wed., and Fri.–Sun.; 11 a.m.–8 p.m. Thurs. Runs Feb. 25–May 7. $8, free on Thursdays. Henry Art Gallery, 15th Avenue Northeast and North 45th Street, 206-543-2280, LYNN JACOBSON
