TGIF!! Here’s a quick Weekend Picks post as I’m able to write a few words while my 7 week old naps and 3 1/2 year old is at school. Thanks for sticking with Beltway Bambinos as I’ve had to take some time off with my newborn. Hoping to be able to publish more posts very soon as our routine is starting to form. Have a great weekend! As always let me know if you know of any fun we should add to our posts.
There are many great live productions to see this weekend, including the final show of 101 Dalmations as well as The Addams Family. Check our Theater Roundup page!
