Avoid the stress of renting a car and navigating on your own on this bus tour of Washington DC. A guide provides entertaining historical context, as you pass more than 50 of the city’s iconic landmarks, including the White House, Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, and National Mall. Unlike most city bus tours, a small group size ensures you have the guide's full attention for questions and comments.

We've been ling-time subscribers to Misaic's presentations at the various theater spaces in Atlas, and we have lived about 70% of the shows on Israeli/Palestinian racial justice, African-American and similar topical & public issues/themes that we've seen there over the years. But yesterday's final performance of "Eureka Day," a play about pro- and anti-vaccination parents at a progressive day school, was the last nail in the coffin for us. The theater space is still wonderful, but we've been seriously disappointed in ALL the plays produced this season by the new artistic team. So, we're not renewing for the next season, and our group of friends will switch our theater-going to Woolly Mammoth, Studio, or somewhere else. Please, Mosaic, get your act together, because we love coming down for plays and a meal in the H Street corridor!

As part of their series on African-American playwrights, we went to see Lynne Nottage's Fabulation or the Re-Education of Undine. I hadn't seen anything by her and had high expectations. However, this particular play was written years before she got her act together: WAY roo much of Undine's character's lines are asides to the audience designed to tell you what Nottage hadn't yet learned to show. But the minor characters were well-drawn and well-acted. Anyway...the Lang Theater on the upstairs level of the Atlas Center is an intimate theatre space: comfortable seats, good angle so your view isn't blocked by the person in front of you. Excellent acoustics, dubbing, lighting and set design. We don't always love the plays (they hit about 65% in my experience), but we LOVE seeing theatre in a place where the racial balance averages about 35-45% African-American.

In a section of the city that's been painfully gentrified, the Atlas group has revived this theater and, by my observation, has made an effort to reflect and incorporate the cultural interests of the whole city, including the H Street district where some longtime residents/families have felt/have been pushed out and ignored. Parking for consumers, however, is utterly insurmountable. The district seems to flaunt their power to regulate and license parking spaces. We paid for a space we could never even find.

After reading about Serses in the Post we bought last minute tickets and went to see Serses, an opera based on a mashup of Handel and Rumi. The story of the Persian king, his brother and three women who, together, form a live pentangle, is ridiculous, as was the Rumi-an commentary, but the si Gingrich and music were wonderful, and the Atlas theater's venues are as well: a terrific place to take in small, e experimental opera and performances of all kinds.

Excellent production. Staging, acting, costumes were all first rate and the venue was perfect. We were out of town visitors who unwittingly bought tickets for next week’s show but the box office obligingly honored them for last night’s performance. Highly recommend.
