Fahrenheit 451 centers on a fireman named Guy Montag who has an unusual job. He doesn't extinguish flames, rather, he starts them--using books as fuel.
Jan. 17-19: La Vie en Rose
Starting tomorrow you can visit GALA Hispanic Theatre in Northwest to see La Vie en Rose, a collaboration between The In Series and The Washington Ballet Studio Company that introduces audiences to more than 100 years of French music. Featuring choreography by Septime Weber, this performance blends song and dance as it evokes imagery of Parisian life and French poetry. There will be three performances, ending with a 3 p.m. matinee on Sunday.
Jan. 19: Fahrenheit 451
This Sunday at 7 p.m. you can see British-American touring troupe Aquila Theatre perform Fahrenheit 451 at George Mason University’s Center for the Arts in Fairfax. Based on the book by Ray Bradbury, the play is set in a world where books have been outlawed. Fireman Guy Montag works to uncover and burn any literary contraband and the homes of those who harbor them. But things get a bit complicated when he begins to question his work and the censored society he lives in.
Music: “La Vie En Rose (Instrumental)” by Michael Bublé
