Getting Up Guide: Story/Stereo, Bob Saget, 'Titus Andronicus'

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 Friday:

By now, you know the drill: Story/Stereo brings together words and music at the Writer's Center in Bethesda, with authors reading passages from recent works while local musicians perform short, intimate sets. What's different this time around is that instead of a rock band or singer-songwriter, the musical performer is DJ Will Eastman, who you've probably never seen beyond the confines of the darkened Black Cat or U Street Music Hall. The performance begins at 8 p.m.

Bob Saget
Admittedly, "Full House" hasn't been relevant for 15 years, but time hasn't reduced the shock that comes from hearing the sky-blue material of the onetime Danny Tanner actor. Then again, that disconnect is what makes Bob Saget's act so devastatingly funny, even if a part of us still impulsively wants to reach for the earmuffs.

Titus Andronicus
Shakespeare's early-career, blood-soaked tragedy can be a bracing experience when performed from the stage. But the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company takes it one step further with a staging of "Titus" in which the titular Roman general goes to war against the Queen of the Goths amid the remains of the Patapsco Female Institute's Historic Park. Bring a flashlight, wear comfortable shoes and plan to walk: The audience will follow the actors through the ruins.
