Jazz icon Billie Holiday -- dubbed "Lady Day" by her friends -- forever changed the world of jazz and popular music with her pioneering vocal style.

"Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill", starring Anya Randall Nebel, recreates this singular night in music history on the stage at Anacostia Playhouse. [less-]

With jokes aimed at both ends of the political spectrum -- and pretty much all of the middle, too -- musical-comedy group The Capitol Steps has been eliciting laughs at democracy's expense since 1981. If you've ever wanted to see Barack Obama sing a show tune, Donald Trump sing a rock song and Vladimir Putin dance shirtless, this is the show for you. The Steps' stage show features numerous song parodies and skits, and the cast even includes some former Congressional staffers, whose firsthand experience helps make the jokes zing that much more. This legendary troupe's recorded more than 30 albums, and their radio specials are featured on NPR stations nationwide four times a year, but there's nothing like experiencing their cutting-edge comedy live at DC's Ronald Reagan Building.
