The Theater (And Films, Too!) Can Make The Pain Go Away

Wonkabout

Tonight through Sunday February 14: There was a time in our nation when politicians actually argued for things they believed in and didn't just whine until their balls fell off. Sad little liberals will find joy in Ford's Theatre's The Rivalry, which re-creates portions of the debates between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas that focused on state's rights and slavery for the 1858 Senate election.

  • Saturday, January 23: Yoga, it's what the Whole Foods loving, Lululemon wearing, 'I work on the Hill' yuppies do, but this Saturday anyone can indulge in the sport(?) for FREE as part of Yoga Alliance’s Yoga Day USA. Various Locations are offering free classes and free workshops. [Yoga Day USA]
  • Tuesday, January 26 through Sunday, January 31: The American Ballet Theater, you may remember them from the excellent Film Center Stage, will be performing Romeo and Juliet at the Kennedy Center, and we have no reason to think that it will be anything short of amazing. [Kennedy Center]
