June 13: Summer of 69

Try to imagine that you and your spouse are both performers and your touring schedules keep you apart most of the time. What do you do? Well, if you’re Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally, you might elect to write and star in a musical together. Their new comedy show, DAR Constitution Hall next Friday at 8 p.m. Offerman says the “sexual extravaganza” will include bedroom advice, marriage tips and hopefully some laughs from the audience.

"It combines all the clumsiness and foul language of my humorist show, American Ham, with the beauty and talent and glamour of my wife’s singing ability."

June 2: Life is a Dream (La Vida es Sueño)

You can attend a staged reading of Life is a Dream, or La Vida es Sueño, tonight at the Former Residence of the Embassy of Spain. Presented by SPAIN arts & culture and Shakespeare Theatre Company, the reading of this philosophical play begins at 7 p.m., but you can come a little earlier for some tapas.

Music: “Funny How Time Slips Away” by Jazz Instrumentals
