What to Do This Week: January 22 to 24

Check out moving survival stories from the superstorm, take in the ballet, and check out some serious karaoke singers.

By: Jason Koebler


BALLET: We know you like to ball out as often as possible, but you’ve got to be all balled out for now, right? Take a step back from with something wholesome: the National Ballet of Canada’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is up at the Kennedy Center through this weekend. 7:30 PM, $45-$115.


ART: Hurricane Sandy was almost three months ago, and there are still harrowing survival stories coming out of the ordeal. Gallery 102 at GW is hosting Sandy’s Stories: An Epilogue of Hurricane Sandy. The exhibit features collages, installations, photos, and other works from GW students and other DC-based artists that explore what happened in the aftermath of the storm. Things open up with a reception Wednesday. 6 PM, Free.


KARAOKE: Most karaoke nights in DC (and the world) consist of buttoned-up types singing “Livin’ on a Prayer” and that weird guy who wants to rap Eminem for some reason. But every once in a while you get a true performer—someone who can either A) actually sing or B) stand on tables and sing in a hilarious fashion. You should get plenty of that at H Street’s fifth Karaoke Cup, featuring the best singers from a month of karaoke nights at Little Miss Whiskey’s and Sticky Rice. 9 PM, Free.
