WAMU 88.5 Presents: What Would It Take To Fix The Housing Crisis? @ UVA Darden Sands Family Grounds |  |  |

Renting in the Washington, D.C., region is costly, and, for many, buying a home seems impossible. With Amazon’s HQ2 on its way, it doesn’t look like prices are going to drop any time soon.

If you are paying more than 30% of your income, you’re considered “cost burdened.”But paying less than a third of your take-home pay isn’t easy here — even for people making well into the six figures.

There are a lot of ideas for how to fix this — build more housing … expand rent control … condense urban sprawl …. The Affordability Desk from WAMU 88.5 wants to put these ideas to the test. Join our team and a panel of experts for a community conversation about the solutions to fix the region’s housing affordability crisis.

Mouse in House @ Theatre on The Run

Mouse in House @ Theatre on The Run |  |  |

Adapted from the book “The Mouse of Amherst” by Elizabeth Spires, Mouse in House reveals an unlikely friendship between a lively mouse and reclusive 19th-century poet Emily Dickinson. The mouse’s life changes forever when a gust of wind blows one of Emily’s poems her way. Moved by Emily’s evocative words that capture her own feelings, the mouse becomes determined to be a poet herself. Animations designed by media artist Bryan Leister were developed from images of Dickinson’s actual home furnishings.
A family friendly performance, Mouse in House is a lively movement and theater presentation for the young and young-at-heart. The performance incorporates spoken word, movement, music. The show opens with a brief performance by students from Go Bananas Dancing.

The Frog Prince of Spamalot @ Thomas Jefferson Community Theatre

Hyronomous A. Frog doesn’t quite fit in among the other frogs in the bog. He’s incredibly large compared to the others and hates the taste of flies! When he meets Gloria the Good Witch, he learns he must be kissed by a maiden to break the curse that turned him from a prince into a frog. Our frog-legged friend sets off for Spamalot, where he finds the spoiled and petulant Princess Gladiola and her sisters. Gladiola and her painfully pompous fiancé, Sir Lancelot Pancelot, will stop at nothing to get rid of him. Find out if the beloved frog finally gets his ribbiting…er, riveting…heart-warming finale!

Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is transported to 20th century New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the Jets and the Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence, and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching, and relevant musical dramas of our time. Dance and sing to favorite numbers including “Maria,” “America,” and more!
