Even if you’re not so into politics, you’re sure to enjoy Born Yesterday at Ford’s Theatre. This timely political satire is set in the 1940’s and follows tycoon Harry Brock and his girlfriend Billie Dawn as they go to Washington to work the system — to their own dastardly benefit.
Naïve Billie Dawn starts working with a local reporter to end the corruption that she once took part in. It’s just the uplifting message you need to remember that justice can prevail, even in a broken system. Plus, it provides a few laughs and a dose of romance as well. Tickets to afternoon matinee and evening performances are available, and prices are as low as $25 per seat. Ford’s Theatre is such an intimate setting that any seat in the house is a great one. The show runs now through October, so be sure to get your tickets soon.
