(April 23-29) No holograms, just Broadway

The Chairman of the Board is back in the District, but it's not through some new-fangled hologram technology or anything of the sort--it's just Broadway. The Kennedy Center stages Come Fly Away through the end of the month. Frank Sinatra's greatest hits soar with swinging dances and a live big band as four couples fall in and out of love.

(April 28-May 2017) House & Home

Washington's National Building Museum explores what it means to be at home in America by taking a look at hundreds of houses and household objects. House & Home tracks the changes in laws, technology, and consumer culture that have transformed our ideas of domestic life over the past several centuries. You can interact with photos, films, models, and construction materials beginning Saturday.
