Eisenhower Theater

February 2, 2019

Stone-faced and cerebral - Steven Wright is a comedian who leaves audiences doubled over in laughter with his absurdist, slightly-skewed commentary. Known for his deadpan vocal and offbeat sense of humor, Steven Wright has been the recipient of several comedy awards as well as an Oscar which he won in 1989 for a short film he co-wrote and starred in.

Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

venue exterior

Built in 1971 to realize the late President Kennedy's ambitions to bring culture to the American public, the Center has seen over 300 productions across ballet, theater and concerts created and stage at the complex. December 2014 saw the start of an ambitious expansion project that would reopen access from the Center to the Potomac River, as well as easier access to lower Georgetown and provide more space for visitors and performers to engage with.
