Lincoln Theater 1215 U St NW, Washington, DC

Why do guys just want to f*ck you once then stalk your Instagram forever? Should you ditch the apps and meet people in the wild? How do you get over a breakup when you feel like you’re gonna die?

These are all topics discussed on Girls Gotta Eat — a hilarious podcast from Rayna Greenberg (@Rayna.Greenberg) and Ashley Hesseltine (comedian + creator of @BrosBeingBasic).

The live show is coming to DC in January. First night sold out so they added a second, which may or may not also be sold out! Hot tix!

Kennedy Center – Opera House – Washington, DC

The North American tour of Lincoln Center Theater’s My Fair Lady revival officially opens at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., December 19, following an initial kickoff in Syracuse, New York. Check out highlights in the pictures below (click a pic to view larger size).

The production, directed by Barlett Sher, stars Shereen Ahmed as Eliza Doolittle and Laird Mackintosh as Professor Henry Higgins. “Shereen Ahmed is a luminous and revelatory Eliza who, with Laird Mackintosh, a witty and happily misogynistic Higgins, make for an electrifying evening,” Sher says.

The cast also features Leslie Alexander as Mrs. Higgins, Adam Grupper as Alfred P. Doolittle, Wade McCollum as Professor Zoltan Karpathy, Kevin Pariseau as Colonel Pickering, Gayton Scott as Mrs. Pearce, and Sam Simahk as Freddy Eynsford-Hill.

The Broadway production earned five Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Best Revival of Musical. It was nominated for 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival; five Drama Desk Awards, including Best Musical Revival; and three Drama League Awards, including Best Musical Revival. After opening at the Vivian Beaumont Theater in 2018, My Fair Lady played 548 performances, closing July 7, 2019.
