Life Is a Bowl of Cherry Blossoms

Saturday, April 3: Well, if you haven't already seen the Cherry Blossoms, turns out that they peaked on Wednesday. Oh well, so sad. But now you have no reason not to spend Saturday indoors at the Freer Gallery with Japan's greatest gift to the world: anime. The Eighth Annual National Cherry Blossom Festival Anime Marathon -- that's right, it's an ALL DAY anime affair -- starts at 11AM on Saturday morning.  [Freer Gallery]

  • Saturday, April 3 through Saturday, April 17: There's nothing more funny than racism, gentrification, blacks and whites mingling, and the fact that Clybourne Park, a play about the angst that results when black family moves into a white neighborhood in Chicago in the 1950's, tells a very similar story to what's happening now in DC.

  • Saturday, April 3 through Sunday, April 18: Because going to theater should somehow involve saving the world, check out In Darfur at Theater J. It's a captivating story about the genocide in Darfur, and the theater is also offering free post-show discussions with some pretty kick-ass people about how to get involved and make a difference on the issue.

  • Saturday, April 3 through Monday, May 24: Famous controversial filmmaker Elia Kazan made lots of great (and controversial) movies, and you can see 10 of them, including On the Waterfront, A Streetcar Named Desire, and America, America at the AFI Silver Spring as part of their "Elia Kazan: "A Centennial Retrospective."

  • Wednesday, April 7: Seeing an opera is a ridiculously expensive endeavor, plus it's highly likely that you'll end up just taking a really expensive nap, so better idea: head to the Atlas Performing Arts Center for their "Opera in Cinema" events where you can see a top notch Opera in HD for only $20.
