ToDo ToDay: Laurie Anderson, How We Got On, and Lettuce

Check out some hip-hop influenced theater tonight.

ToDo ToDay: Crisis, Hessismore, and ShowPony

More than half a century after it premiered on television, the National Archives invites contemporary audiences to view Robert Drew’s 1963 documentary, Crisis, in conjunction with the March on Washington Film Festival. The film chronicles President Kennedy’s battle with Alabama Gov. George Wallace over the integration of the University of Alabama, and because equal access continues [...]

ToDo ToDay: Quilts, Jewish Chinese Food, and Raheem DeVaughn

Because I’m a sexist idiot, I assumed an exhibit on quilts might be a touch dull. Wrong! “Workt by Hand: Hidden Labor and Historical Quilts” at the National Museum of Women in the Arts offers stunning visuals and a lively history lesson in the form of 35 historical quilts. The exhibit explores ideas of women’s [...]

ToDo ToDay: “National Eyes of History,” Bell X1, and George Pelecanos

The White House News Photographers Association has been mounting exhibitions of its contest winners for decades. This year, a related but separate exhibit sponsored by the association—one that for the first time solicited entries from photographers around the country—is being held at the much smaller Carroll Square Gallery. Read more >>> The exhibit is on view 8 [...]

ToDo ToDay: Torch Song Trilogy and a New Day for Lincoln Theatre

Studio Theatre scored when it recruited Shakespeare Theatre’s Michael Kahn to direct its season opener, Harvey Fierstein’s Torch Song Trilogy. For a play as important as Torch Song, one of the first to address a gay man’s search for love, companionship, and family, assembling an all-star crew seems imperative. The production consists of three one-act plays that [...]

ToDo ToDay: “Pas de Deux” Opens at Studio

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Studio 2ndstage, the Logan Circle theater company has put together "Pas de Deux: Plays from New Zealand and Canada." Both plays are modest in scope but their minimalist depictions of love are intense. David MacIvor’s 2-2 Tango follows an interracial couple as they navigate the travails of romance, whether they’re [...]

ToDo ToDay: Sublime Frequencies, Egg Creams, and “Consensual Sext”

For a record label, Sublime Frequencies’ crate-digging is extreme in its far-reaching trippiness. Since 2003, label cofounders Hisham Mayet and Alan Bishop have collected rare records and made field recordings around the world, then released them in limited editions. But the label doesn’t just offer music. Sublime Frequencies’ folk cinema has captured song and dance [...]

ToDo ToDay: Libraries for All! DGS Happy Hour! George Clinton!

After spending much of the 1990s working as a Microsoft corporate executive, John Wood decided to take a vacation and trek through the Himalayas. When he visited a school in Nepal and saw that it was lacking books for its students, he found a new calling and later returned to the school with a donation [...]

ToDo ToDay: Dizzy Miss Lizzie’s Roadside Revue! Reubens!

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].” Tonight, Dizzy Miss Lizzie reprises its 2012 Fringe [...]

ToDo ToDay: Photojournalism! Alt Comedy!

The fifth annual FotoWeek DC began last week, and Reporters Without Borders is hosting one of its weightiest shows. “101 Images for Press Freedom” captures the history of photojournalism, beginning with the Spanish Civil War and culminating with the 2010 Haitian earthquake. In conjunction with the exhibit, tonight the Corcoran Gallery of Art hosts “Transforming [...]
