Daily Free Performances @ Kennedy Center

The Kennedy Center is known for hosting a variety of shows and concerts and for possessing a spectacular panoramic view of the DC monuments. Another lesser known feature of the Center is its Millennium Stage which features free performances every day of the year.

This week Roger Guenveur Smith played a fierce modern rendition of Frederick Douglass in his one man show and succeeded in scaring the white out of me.

The Millennium Stage performances is a great alternative for something to do in the evenings, and makes for a cheap, easy date alternative. Unlike most of the other formal shows at the Kennedy Center, this stage is more casual dress.
