To Do

The Hill Center hosts a Hitchcock Friday night film series.

So that was kind of a long weekend for those of us with kids in school. I mean I love snow days but I was happy to kick them out the door this morning.

For those of you suffering from cabin fever, here are a few suggestions for how to spend the weekend.

Tonight Rorschach Theatre presents Glassheart, an updated take on the Beauty and the beast story. In this version the singing and dancing candlestick is replaced by a walking and talking Lamp and the Beast lives in a run down apartment near a 7-11. The show runs through February 16th and tickets are available here.

At the Hill Center is a book party for the soon-to-be released book Enduring Courage about the ace pilot Eddie Rickenbocker. Rumor has it there will be WWII inspired cocktails, not sure what that means but it sounds fun. If you’d like to attend RSVP to Christy D’Agostini at 646-307-5573 or Christy.DAgostini@stmartins.com.

Friday at the Fridge is OpenStage, an open mike night for theatre artists. The evening will include 3-4 one-acts in development including local running coach Kathleen Pugh’s story of training for a marathon during a Vegas summer. Normally that would sound horrifying to me but these frigid temps have me dreaming about the desert. Tickets are $10 and can  be purchased here.

Liner Notes is back at the Atlas this weekend and this time the show is all about Love. This live journey through hip hop’s past are always a good time and usually sell out. Saturday is nearly gone so your best chance of catching the show is tonight. Tickets were still available when this posted and can be purchased here.

The Hill Center hosts the first on their Friday night Hitchcock series with Rope. The series is called The Dark Side of Hitchcock: Four Nights of Daring and Suspenseful Films before Psycho. Rope is based based on the notorious Leopold-Loeb Case of the 1920s and stars Jimmy Stewart. The screening begins at 7pm and is free but it is best to reserve your spot in advance. It is Hitchcock.

Saturday Scientist Turned Comedian Tim Lee returns to the Atlas. Lee travels all over the country selling out his unique comedy shows which are basically the opposite of Gallagher’s watermelon shtick. His shows tend to skew nerdy. No wonder he keeps coming back to DC! he has two shows Satursday, at 6pm and 8pm. Tickets are still available and can be purchased here.

    Eddie Rickenbacker was a flying ace in World War I (you know, the one that started 100 years ago this year). Might want to fix those details in the entry.
