Getting Up Guide: Road life, rickeys and robberies
What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening on Monday:
Think your job's travel schedule is demanding? Try spending a year on the road with near-nightly performances in front of hundreds of strangers. That's the life of touring ensemble cast members Q. Smith, Ellen Harvey, Geoffrey Goldberg and Tom Souhrada of the Kennedy Center's "Mary Poppins." The actors offer a revealing look at the ups and downs of the acting life at 6 p.m. on the Millennium Stage.
Washington is a city of differences, but there are two things everyone agrees on: the Rickey - usually gin, fresh lime juice and club soda - was born right here in Washington, and during a D.C. summer, the drink is like air-conditioning in a glass. Bartenders have been serving unique twists on the classic cocktail all month, and their creativity will be judged at the Passenger by a panel that includes our own Fritz Hahn beginning at 6:30 p.m. If you've collected ten stamps on your Rickey Month passport, bring it and your admission will be free; otherwise, it's $10 at the door, including one rickey.
Okay for real this time: if you've been putting it off for the last month, this is your last chance to catch Screen on the Green in 2010, and with the event's previous financial and sponsorship issues, who knows what next year will bring? In the meantime, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway engineer a stylish spree of robberies from Oklahoma to Texas in the 1967 romance-thriller "Bonnie and Clyde." The show starts at sunset -- officially 8:18 p.m. -- on the National Mall between Fourth and Seventh streets.
