Looking for artful inspiration? Many of DC's acclaimed theatres are aiming to attract cultural travelers by creating performances in repertory, allowing visitors to catch multiple shows in the same weekend that follow a similar theme or honor a legendary playwright. Hotels have done their part to support the trend by creating performing arts-themed packages.

The Shakespeare Theatre Company's expansion, the $85 million Harman Center for the Arts (6th and F Streets, NW), is the newest performance space in downtown DC's Penn Quarter arts and entertainment district. The new space has enabled the Company to expand its season from five to eight plays and to create themed play cycles. Spotlighting Shakespearean contemporary Christopher Marlowe, the Harman Center will show "Tamburlaine" (Oct. 28-Jan. 6) and "Edward II" (Oct. 27-Jan. 6) in repertory. This spring, the theatre will stage two of the Bard's Roman works in repertory, "Julius Caesar" (Apr. 27-Jul. 6) and "Antony and Cleopatra" (Apr. 26-Jul. 6).

Theatre weekends are also in fashion at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, which pays homage to the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, August Wilson, by performing all ten plays in his celebrated twentieth century cycle Mar. 4-29. Directed by Kenny Leon, who staged the Broadway premiere of Wilson's "Gem of the Ocean," August Wilson's 20th Century Festival will be the first of its kind to present all ten plays in a condensed package. The plays will be presented chronologically in the order in which they're set, beginning with "Gem of the Ocean" and ending with the 1990s' "Radio Golf." Each of the plays will be presented in repertory fashion, giving the inter-related plays the same voices and faces and enabling audiences to see as many as three of the plays in a single weekend. The cast includes stars from the stage and screen, including longtime Wilson veterans who have performed in several of his works on Broadway and in theatres across the country. Among those scheduled to appear are Anthony Chisholm, Lynda Gravátt, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Eugene Lee, and Phylicia Rashad. Paying tribute to another one of America's greatest playwrights, Arena Stage will simultaneously stage two of Arthur Miller's plays Mar. 14 - May 18. The Pulitzer Prize-winning work, "Death of a Salesman," showcases Miller's skill as a storyteller and social commentator by chronicling a family man's struggle to capture the American dream. Miller fans can also catch Arena's production of "A View from the Bridge," a drama about immigrant life in a close-knit Italian Brooklyn neighborhood in the 1950s.

Springtime salutes aren't limited to playwrights. In its first full season at its new home in Arlington, Va., Signature Theatre celebrates the longest-running music and lyrics partnership in Broadway musical history - John Kander and Fred Ebb. From film to musical theater to cabaret, Signature Theatre showcases the many entertainment sides of Kander and Ebb. The entire canon of their witty and sharp lyrics, along with their engaging musical melodies, will grace the Signature stage. Presented in repertory, this retrospective includes three outstanding productions, "Kiss of the Spider Woman" (Mar. 11-Apr. 20), "The Happy Time" (Apr. 1-June 1) and "The Visit" (May 13-June 22).

Dance lovers can also plan their own family-friendly cultural getaways to the nation's capital this year through a partnership between The Washington Ballet and the Willard InterContinental Hotel. Three of the Washington Ballet's upcoming productions, "Where the Wild Things Are" (Nov.2-4), "The Nutcracker" (Dec.6-23), and "Cinderella" (May 7-11), will be presented at the Warner Theatre, just one block from the Willard Hotel. The hotel has created ballet-themed hotel packages for each production designed to appeal to budding ballerinas, family travelers and arts patrons alike. Packages include overnight accommodations and two tickets for the ballet; premium packages also include amenities like parent and child cooking classes or couples' spa treatments.

Culturally-minded travelers can also create their own custom getaways on Great rates and seasonal hotel packages are available this winter through DC's Holiday Homecoming promotion. Or, stay tuned for springtime deals with cherry blossom and spring break-inspired getaways.

Theatre Press Releases The Shakespeare Theatre Company:

P - R - E - S - S R - E - L - E - A - S - E

“Funny … The production glides confidently from silly to wry, from the pratfall to the riposte … Suave Christopher Innvar and tart Veanne Cox [are] polished comic actors who seem as smart as the words they utter.”Peter Marks, The Washington Post more reviews With The Beaux’ Stratagem, George Farquhar used his gift for wit and character to make a bold critique of class, marriage and English society. After squandering their fortunes on drink and gambling, Tom Aimwell and Jack Archer seek refuge in the countryside. They hope to seduce two ladies of status and fortune, but true love and a band of thieves soon complicate their scheming. For more than a century, The Beaux’ Stratagem was one of the most frequently performed English comedies, enjoying constant revivals.

The Shakespeare Theatre Company rediscovers this classic with a world premiere adaptation, begun by Thornton Wilder in 1939 and finished 65 years later by Tony Award-nominated playwright Ken Ludwig. Together, Wilder and Ludwig’s work sheds new light on Farquhar’s spirited dialogue and hilarious characters. Michael Kahn directs, calling up “the combination of stylization and raw force that has brought his productions of the classics to towering life” (The Washington Post).

Personal Notes Arthur Murray Dance Studio @ RKO DC

The Washington D.C. Experience 1969 - 1971:

It was at the junction of New York Avenue, and 14th Street, the Old RKO Theater Building ( some one tell me if it still exists ), where I walked into The Arthur Murray Dance Studio, and was put into a Training Class for Dance Instructors by Glenda Nelson, then, one of the Supervisors, especially mine.

Here I survived with Susan Avery, and David Malrich training class out of 27 who started. The reason why I stayed with it is due to finally dealing with some after of the affects of the Vietnam War, but the people who were connected with this studio, at that time about 19 to 23 personel listing, also were very encouraging.
