From Springfield, U.S.A., to Washington, D.C.

By Julia Beizer

Remember when the Simpsons came to Washington? After getting some good advice from the Jefferson Memorial, Lisa read her scathing essay, "Cesspool on the Potomac," and saved the trees in Springfield's National Forest from demolition. She may not have won the Reader's Digest essay contest, but her integrity in the face of corruption resulted in a congressman's ejection from office.

This Thursday's talk at the Sixth and I Historic Synagogue may not have quite the same effect as little Lisa's, but it should be a good one for all those Simpsons fanatics out there. In a program entitled "Simpsons Mania," producer and writer Mike Reiss speaks about his 11 years on the show and shares some clips. Tickets to the 8 p.m. talk are available through Ticketmaster for $12.

According to the Sixth and I Web site, ticket-holders are eligible to win "Simpsons paraphernalia." As if you don't still have your Simpsons lunch box from fourth grade....

Ticketmaster Online is no longer selling tickets and I couldn't get ahold of someone at the synagogue... does this mean that it's sold out?

Hmmm. Don't know. The Ticketmaster link worked yesterday -- but, sure enough, it's not working today. I've put a call in to the Synagogue and will let you know what I find out.

Heard back from Sixth and I. Ticketmaster has stopped selling tickets, but they are still available at the door tonight. These tickets are $15. There will be a "Meet and Greet" with Mr. Reiss after the talk and tickets to this event cost and additional $4. Doors open at 7 p.m. for the 8 p.m. talk. Hope this helps!
