“Handmaid’s Tale: The Musical”

October 27 at 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
Kennedy Center, United States + Google Map

Love Hulu’s glum TV take on Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel? This theatrical version of The Handmaid’s Tale is not for you.

Czech Philharmonic

October 29 at 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Kennedy Center, United States + Google Map

Things will get seriously Bohemian when the Czech Philharmonic stops by the Kennedy Center for an all-Prague program: Luboš Fišer’s rarely performed 1969 composition “Double for Orchestra” along with Dvořák’s Seventh Symphony and Cello Concerto in B Minor. The latter will feature notably expressive soloist Alisa Weilerstein, who’s from . . . upstate New York.
