Round House Theatre greets the season with A Wrinkle in Time, a show that talks about love and family with more humor and adventure than treacle and sing-song. From JJ Kaczynski's beautifully animated opening sequence to scenic designer Misha Kachman's off-kilter, "once-upon-a-time-meets-Jules-Verne set," to the clever and spare use of puppets and audio design, A Wrinkle in Time sprawls luxuriously on its carefully rendered stage. Closes Sunday, Dec. 26. Round House Theatre, 4545 East-West Highway, Bethesda. Tickets are $10 to $60. Call 240-644-1100 or visit roundhousetheatre.org.
