Few shows reviewed last summer on Washington City Paper’s Fringe & Purge blog received the high praise awarded to Dizzy Miss Lizzie’s Roadside Revue. “Just go already,” said our critic. “Dizzy Miss Lizzie [is] alchemical Fringe rock ‘n’ roll magic [genius], and there’s no reason to miss [it].” Well, there may have been one reason: You didn’t want to swelter in the heat of the Baldacchino Gypsy Tent with 200 other sweaty, smelly Fringe-goers. But those who long for climate control no longer have an excuse. Dizzy Miss Lizzie reprises its 2012 Fringe hit, The Brontes, at the Kennedy Center’s Theater Lab. The Shear Madness cast and crew has the night off, so the Kennedy Center has invited the home-grown vaudeville troupe over for a much more raucous good time at the expense of classic British literature. Here’s hoping Miss Lizzie’s appearance marks the start of a Monday night trend.
The performance begins at 6 p.m. at the Kennedy Center’s Theater Lab, 2700 F St. NW. Free. Tickets will be distributed beginning at 5 p.m. (202) 467-4600. kennedy-center.org.
