Getting Up Guide: Andrea Centazzo, Ingrid Betancourt

By Alex Baldinger

What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Wednesday:

Andrea Centazzo
The Sonic Circuits Festival, a celebration of electronic music in the Washington area, moves to the Kennedy Center for a performance by the absurdly prolific multi-instrumentalist Andrea Centazzo. The Italian-born author of more than 350 compositions, ranging from orchestral symphonies to avant-garde jazz, has played more than 1,000 concerts and performs with a set of more than 200 instruments, from gongs to digital samplers.

Ingrid Betancourt
What is it like to be held prisoner for six years? The author, a Colombian politician and former presidential candidate, discusses her new memoir, "Even Silence Has an End: My Six Years of Captivity in the Colombian Jungle," which chronicles her capture by the FARC terrorist network. A book signing follows at the National Press Club. Register by calling 202-662-7523 or e-mailing opus@press.org.

In the Next Room, Or the Vibrator Play
Let's talk about sex, shall we? No? Too awkward? If you think it's a taboo subject even in the age of Kardashians and sexting, imagine how it might go over if you were a lace-collared lady of the 1800s. Sarah Ruhl, one of the nation's hottest young playwrights, dares to dream of just such Victorian-era naughtiness in "In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play," which continues at Woolly Mammoth through Oct. 3. Wednesday's curtain is at 8 p.m.
