Orquesta Akokán

September 8
Gateway Park, 1300 Lee Highway
Arlington, VA 22206 United States

Recorded at Havana’s most famous studio, this group’s debut album sounds like a lost mambo classic from the 1950s. You’ll be dancing around the lawn when they bring their congas to the Rosslyn Jazz Fest at Gateway Park, although it might be a challenge keeping up with the showstopping album opener, “Mambo Rapidito.”

Dance Loft on 14, 4618 14th St NW
Washington, DC 20011 United States

“Gloria”

September 8 at 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Gloria is a sharp satire that takes place among the cubicles of low-level employees at a highbrow magazine. Jacobs-Jenkins knows the turf, having once worked in a similar position at the New Yorker. But this isn’t just a send-up of office politics; the play takes a sudden dark turn that feels even more relevant now […]
