June 23-July 13: Side Show

Daisy and Violet are close as two sisters can be. They’re joined at the hip…literally. Oscar winner Bill Condon directs Side Show, a musical about conjoined twins whose lives change forever when they’re recruited from a ramshackle Texas sideshow and trained to be vaudeville performers. Finding fame isn’t an issue for the talented pair, but love is a whole other story. You can see the play at The Kennedy Center through July 13.

June 23-28: Old Time Music Hall

The British Players celebrate 50 years in D.C. with Old Time Music Hall, a British vaudeville cabaret featuring a mix of patriotic songs, comedy and dance with an English twist. The Palace Variety Orchestra accompanies the performance, which you can see through June 28 at Kensington Town Hall.

Music: “Tea for Two Cha Cha” by Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra
