I had a chance to catch a stripped down WWE event at The Patriot Center a few weeks ago with my Bro and it was a blast. Now the big mamma jamma is coming. WWE’s march towards Wrestlemania hits DC’s Verizon Center, March 31st. This is the last Monday Night Raw before the year’s biggest wrestling event so you know stuff is going to go down! Witness the return of Washington’s own six-time World Champion “The Animal” Batista at Monday Night RAW presented by WWE.

It is always an odd experience seeing an old time Broadway show revived for today’s cynical modern times. The 1927 production of Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II’s Show Boat is widely credited as being one of the first Broadway “super musicals.” The show spawned numerous, well known classics like “Ol’ Man River,” “You Are Love,” “Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man,” “Bill,” and others. Washington National Opera under Artistic Director Francesca Zambello spared no expense in bringing this massive production to The Kennedy Center Opera house.
