Aug. 5: Love’s Labours Lost
Taffety Punk Theatre Company presents its annual Bootleg Shakespeare event tonight at the Folger Theatre in Southeast, where cast members will perform the comedy Love’s Labours Lost. Here’s the thing though, the entire play is being rehearsed and performed in a single day. The show starts at 7 p.m., whether the cast is ready or not, and while tickets are free, they might be tricky to get a hold of. Your best bet is to mosey over to the Folger Box Office, where tickets will become available at noon.

Aug. 5-Sept. 1: The Elements of Hip Hop

You can also check out workshops, an artists market, a b-boy competition, and a concert.
