What's closed (and open) Thursday

By Anne Kenderdine

Update: While much of the region is still shuttered and digging out, the going-out possibilities are looking much sunnier today.
• At Ford's Theatre, "The Rivalry" is on for 7:30 p.m. tonight. There's now an added performance at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, too.
• Disney on Ice" (although why anyone would pay for more ice at this point mystifies us) goes on at the Verizon Center at 7:30 tonight and a show's been added for Monday at 4:30 p.m.

This week, it's been the snow, not the show, that must go on. Keep an eye on this post for updates about what's no longer an option for your calendar tonight and through the weekend. We'll keep updating as we hear more throughout Thursday.
