Getting Up Guide: Michael Buble and 'Candide'

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 Tuesday:

Michael Buble
There's little doubt at this point that Michael Buble is the total package: charming, handsome, self-effacing and capable of holding a room captive while onstage. But perhaps most impressive, Buble is able to effortlessly make a 20,000-seat sports arena feel like a basement cabaret performance, albeit with a few more high-def projection screens. The Canadian crooner's "Crazy Love" tour swings through Washington at 8 p.m.

Gay Talese
Now 78, Gay Talese has always told stories of triumph over human vulnerability, and his sportswriting career -- best captured in a new compendium spanning more than 60 years -- contains some of his most indelible tales. Talese discusses "The Silent Season of a Hero: The Sports Writing of Gay Talese" at 7:30 p.m.

Shakespeare Theatre Company teams up with Chicago's Goodman Theater to present Leonard Bernstein's classic operetta, based on Voltaire's original, about an optimistic young man, Candide, who is trained in the art slowly becomes disillusioned. Tonight's curtain is at 7:30 p.m.
