Getting Up Guide: Yes, you can still see Lady Gaga tonight
What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Tuesday:
While Lady Gaga's appearance at the Verizon Center tonight has been termed 'Sold Out,' we could still buy up to three tickets from these folks as of this morning. Sure, they're behind the stage and listed as 'limited view' -- and with the spectacle that is a Lady Gaga show, that's no small caveat -- but these tix will do the trick if you're just dying to hear "Telephone" and other mega-hits live. And if you already have tickets tonight, stop by Chinatown Coffee Co. before the show; as if the performance needed any more visual enhancement, the first 10 people to show their ticket to a barista get 50 percent off an absinthe cocktail.
You can always count on the Washington Psychotronic Film Society, purveyors of wild, weird and schlocky b-movies, to bring you old movies that are three steps beyond weird with bad acting. Even the titular cat gets bad reviews for this one. Movies screen in the Warehouse Theatre, though you must enter through the Passenger Bar on Seventh Street. (Conveniently, this means you can get a drink on the way in.)
The Shakespeare Theatre's 2010-11 season begins with four-time Academy Award nominee Marsha Mason as the Countess of Rosillion in Shakespeare's comedy about an ailing king, a woman who can cure him and the man she loves but who doesn't love her back. The show runs through Oct. 24 at the Lansburgh Theatre.
