Yakov Smirnoff

Yakov Smirnoff began performing standup in the US in the late ’70s, and by 1988 he was the featured entertainer at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. Not bad for a man who spent most of his time reminiscing about the Soviet Union. Deftly masking multilayered wordplay and surprisingly thoughtful deconstructions of society behind a wry smile, Smirnoff punctuates each punchline with an unmistakeable gasping laugh. Now that the Cold War has melted, he has moved on to more timeless topics—differences between men and women, family life, and how popular he is in bars that serve vodka.

Rialto Square Theatre

Designed to mimic the French palace of Versailles, Rialto Square Theatre’s magnificent interior awes showgoers with its gilded opulence. In the regal inner lobby, a 20-foot, 250-light chandelier—dubbed The Duchess—illuminates a circular series of delicate reliefs that depict allegories of man triumphing through labor and scenes from Greek mythology. A scaled-down replica of Paris’s Arc de Triomphe leads from the lobby to the rotunda, adding to the space’s grandeur and commemorating miniature Napoleon’s victory at the adorable Battle of miniature Austerlitz.
