If you are planning a trip to the US capital in August 2019, then there are performances, exhibitions, and other programs waiting for you to explore. So let us dive straight into the list without further ado.
Game Grumps: the Final Party at Warner Theater
On their super popular series named “Game Grumps”, Dan Avidan and Arin Hanson play games while at the same time cracking jokes and complaining amicably about new releases. The appearance of Avidan and Hanson on August 28, 2019, will be just more of the same, yet in front of a real-life audience.
My Computing Devices at the National Museum of American History
Do you miss your PalmPilot even today? If so, you have an opportunity to see personal computing devices at the museum’s wall of old-fashioned electronics. You can see these devices of yore during your American History Museum tours for free on August 28, 2019.
Dear Evan Hansen at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts
Dear Evan Hansen is a musical that got the start at DC’s Arena Stage before turning into a Broadway phenomenon. Years following its premiere in DC, it opens at the Eisenhower Theater of the Kennedy Center. In April 2018, the Kennedy Center revealed “Dear Evan Hansen” would return to the nation’s capital for the first-ever time since the musical moved to NY.
Shawn Mendes at Capital One Arena
Shawn Mendes will come to the arena to perform live on August 13, 2019. The recent single of the Canadian singer cum songwriter named “If I Can’t Have You” has already become a hit. So, as far as his career is concerned, it seems like he is safe for now. When the heartthrob released photographs of himself in boxer briefs in 2019, some may have feared this side gig signals an unexpected downfall of a music career. It was not to be.
National Book Festival
This annual festival will be back soon to fulfill the ambitions of book lovers, longing to fit a whole month’s worth of author readings and book talks into a single day. The focus this year is on America’s Changemakers, which will highlight restaurateur cum activist José Andrés, Justice of the Supreme Court Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and scholar cum literary critic Henry Louis Gates Jr., who will all appear at the Washington Convention Center to talk about their work.
