Shakespeare Theater Company is proud to announce a newly commissioned adaptation and translation of Friedrich Schiller’s Wallenstein by former poet laureate Robert Pinsky. Wallenstein, one of Germany’s greatest dramatic works, follows the famous general Albrecht von Wallenstein at the height of his influence and power during the Thirty Years’ War. Leading Europe’s most powerful army, Wallenstein is caught between his ambition and his Emperor’s growing distrust. He must decide either to stay loyal to his king and lose his power or to betray his country for greater gain. STC Artistic Director Michael Kahn, called “one of the best directors in America”, envisions this epic story of war, intrigue and loyalty tested.

We could have lunch at Rosa Mexicano, next door to the Sidney Harman Hall. Lunch is served until 4pm. Check out the menu.
We could dine at La Tusca Spanish Tapas Bar and Restaurant, 722 7th Street NW. I have a coupon for $25.00 off (excluding alcohol and happy hour), but we need to purchase as a group at least $50. A 20% gratuity must be added prior to the $25.00 discount, so we end up saving something like $20.00 as a group - a few dollars savings per person. Also, Happy Hour, 4–7 PM Everyday! Bar Only: $3.75 sangria, draft beers and house wines. Glasses of cadillac sangria are $5. Pitchers of sangria are $17 for the regular versions and $20 for the cadillacs. Happy hour tapas are available for $3.75. Keep these options in mind.
