DECLASSIFIED: Carnival of Sins featuring Storm Large & Hudson Shad with the National Symphony Orchestra @ Kennedy Center Concert Hall
A lead singer with Pink Martini, Storm Large is a "sensational" (The New York Times) entertainer in her own right. She performs cabaret songs plus Kurt Weill's wickedly delightful The Seven Deadly Sins in concert with all-male vocal quartet Hudson Shad. Led by "talented young American conductor" (The New York Times) James Gaffigan, the program also includes Richard Rodgers's fanciful Carousel Waltz. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ABOUT DECLASSIFIED: FRIDAYS AT 9 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The secret is out! Some of the NSO's Friday night programs are taking on a whole new vibe with a fresh mix of sound and vision plus exciting pre- and post-concert activities, all at a great price. For the 2015–2016 season, the NSO has "unlocked" some of its standard Friday programs and opened them up to fresh concepts in concert-going with DECLASSIFIED: Fridays at 9. Not your typical Concert Hall experience, these late evenings will include an eclectic mix of classic and modern sounds, special guest artists, dynamic multimedia, audience interaction, and pre- and/or post-performance activities. They'll begin at 9
. (an hour later than usual) and last 60–75 minutes (shorter than a typical program), all at a great price for making memorable nights out with a date or a group of friends! If you heard about the NSO's concert at
.'s Echostage in January 2015, you'll know exactly what to expect at these new concerts: - Come as you are: straight from work, in jeans, or whatever suits your fancy. Be ready to move! - Arrive early and/or stay after the concert for added fun to be announced--each night will be a different experience. - Grab drinks or snacks anytime and bring them back into the Concert Hall. - Most importantly, open your mind to a music experience where anything can happen! Performance Timing: Approximately 85 minutes, with no intermission
Gary Owen @ DC Improv
Energy and honesty have made Gary into one of the most popular touring comics in America. He’s also a crossover act unlike any you’ve ever seen – this is a guy who once won the title of “Funniest Black Comic in San Diego.” Fresh off a huge appearance at Constitution Hall in March 2016, he’ll be back in DC (where he used to be stationed during his military career) this summer. He sold out ten shows when we had him here in late 2014 …
Bert Kreischer @ DC Improv
The Bert Kreischer party train keeps picking up speed. Thanks to a Rolling Stone profile, he finished college with a reputation as the country’s biggest party animal. He spun that into TV hosting gigs and a stand-up comedy career – Bert is always on the hunt for adventure, and he loves sharing his experiences on stage. He wrote a best-selling memoir in recent years, and he’s currently the host of TWO hit shows on The Travel Channel: “Trip Flip” and “Bert the Conqueror.”
Roy Wood Jr. @ DC Improv
In the last year, millions of people have gotten to know Roy for his work on “The Daily Show,” and millions more remember his work on the TBS sitcom “Sullivan and Son.” But long before those gigs, Roy was known as a beast on the stand-up circuit – someone who was cracking up audiences coast to coast. He’s back in his natural environment on Labor Day weekend!
