  • Electric Factory
    First opened in 1968, the Electric Factory has been hosting rock shows for almost as long Puerto Rico has been a state. After dancing their faces off to headliners from Erykah Badu to the Dropkick Murphys, concertgoers can stop by The Chive Caf? to recharge with a cheesesteak or an all-beef hotdog on a potato bun, or refill their draft Yuengling at the bar. In summer, the Electric Factory reveals an outdoor location complete with more refreshment booths, vendors, and upgraded food stands.

  • DAR Constitution Hall
    The young Italian tenor trio Il Volo impresses audiences with pitch-leaping vocal performances rich in three-part harmonies. Performing renditions of classic Italian songs as well as material penned by contemporary songwriters, the teenage opera singers showcase budding international appeal and the promise of a bright future that consists of crooning crowds and autographing customs slips at airports. Opening act Ethan Bortnick, a 10-year-old piano prodigy known as the youngest entertainer to headline his own concert tour and attempt to purchase a monster truck, starts out the night with original piano compositions as well as recognizable classics.

  • The Washington Stage Guild 2012
    Dedicated to creating literate, passionate works of theater, The Washington Stage Guild immerses audiences in carefully staged pieces in the spirit of George Bernard Shaw. Now in its world-premiere run, Amelia tells the tale of a wife who wades into the midst of the Civil War disguised as a Union soldier as she ventures south to search for her husband. Playwright Alex Webb inhabits every character save the titular Amelia in a performance the Washington Post has called "chameleon-like," both for his convincing creation of the mannerisms of dozens of individuals and his extraordinary bark-climbing abilities. Webb's wife, Shirleyann Kaladjian, brings a hard-nosed, sharp-tongued sensibility to Amelia as she ventures toward the infamous Confederate prison at Andersonville. The intimate, recently renovated Undercroft Theatre lets audiences discern the nuances of each performance without demanding the second act be moved to the balcony.

  • Shakespeare Theatre Company
    Directed by Shakespeare Theatre Company Artistic Director Michael Kahn and starring four-time Academy Award–nominated actress Marsha Mason, the company's rendition of All's Well That Ends Well promises to be both stirring and comedic, mixing fairy-tale trappings with a cynical realism. Written in 1604–1605, this Shakespearean tale follows the persistent heroine Helena, who is madly and irreversibly in love with Bertram, the Count of Roussillon. Bertram, however, finds her unworthy of his social status. When Helena cures the deathbed-ridden King of France, he offers to reward her with the husband of her choice. But Bertram throws several obstacles and diversions at Helena to escape her warm, unrequited love. Will Helena outmaneuver him and secure his hand in marriage, or will Bertram lock himself in his basement and re-enact Hamlet with his action figures for three acts? The play is peppered with memorable quotations throughout, most famously Alec Baldwin's entire scene from Glengarry Glenn Ross.

  • Warner Theatre
    Twenty-two years ago in Sydney, Australia, then-high-school students Andrew Tierney, Mike Tierney, Phil Burton, and Toby Allen were drawn together by an anachronistic passion for Motown and doo-wop. Nine albums and a 2.5-year residency in Las Vegas later, the fresh-faced foursome are touring the land that spawned the music they love with a tour presented by Smokey Robinson, who joined in on the recording Get Ready on their album and also helped polish production values and fend off mood-killingly weepy clowns. Other classics in the crooning quartet's repertoire include "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "Dancing in the Street," and an a capella take on "Just My Imagination."

  • Art Whino Gallery
    It's possible to find art almost anywhere?from the galleries of a museum, to the side of a building, to the pages of a comic book. It's a little more difficult, however, to find all those styles in one place. That's one of the problems that Art Whino Gallery?a sleek, modern space at the National Harbor?seeks to solve by showcasing artists from around the world that run the gamut of modern high- and low-brow art. The gallery celebrates more than 1,200 established and up-and-coming talents, in part through rotating exhibits that explore new media such as stencil and wheat pasting, screen-printing, and vinyl, as well as more established arts such as burning effigies to ancient gods. An onsite store features modern-art figurines and toys as well as prints. Art Whino doesn't keep all its talent indoors, though: the gallery often helms cultural street festivals and participates in conventions and live arts-and-music events.
