City Paper is not for tourists
Tituss Burgess and Jane Krakowski have memorably paired up on the set of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, playing the unquenchable prima donna Titus Andromedon and confused socialite Jacqueline Voorhees. Now the two are reuniting for a night of comedy and music with the NSO Pops. If you’ve spent any time watching them steal scenes from Ellie Kemper, you already know that the pair have some serious vocal chops. Although their characters are insecure wannabe stars who will break into song if given half a chance, these Broadway vets are likely to take on songs with a bit more heft than Jenna’s signature song, “Muffin Top.” Read more >>> Jane Krakowski and Tituss Burgess perform at 8 p.m. at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall, 2700 F St. NW. $29–$99.
