Where & When: What to Do Tonight

Funny federal employees, another farmers market, and a play about music

THEATER: Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus opens tonight at Round House Theatre. The play is a highly fictionalized telling of the rivalrous friendship between Mozart and Antonio Salieri. Through June 5; purchase tickets ($25 to $60) here.

SHOPPING: Skip the after-work lines at the grocery store and head to the Georgetown Farmers Market at Rose Park (26th and O sts., NW). Vendors will be selling everything from fruit to meat to dog treats every Wednesday from 3 to 7. The market is open through mid-October.

MUSIC: Post-punk legends Echo and the Bunnymen are at the 9:30 Club tonight at 7. Buy tickets ($35) at Ticketfly.

COMEDY: Falling into the only-in-DC category, Arlington Cinema n’ Drafthouse will attempt to find DC’s “funniest fed” this evening. Employees at various federal agencies, from the IRS to the Justice Department, will perform standup routines in a competition starting at 7:30. The finals will be held June 4. Get tickets ($10) here.
