A Neighborhood That Never Changes: Critical darling (well, Pulitzer Prize-winning, anyway)—and Neighborhood Change 101—Clybourne Park is headed to Broadway. The show, reports Variety, will open this spring at the Walter Kerr Theater. D.C. audiences found Clybourne Park so nice that Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company ran it twice. (Though in our pages last summer, Abdul Ali quibbled with the play’s interpretation of Lorraine Hansberry‘s A Raisin in the Sun, on which it’s based.)
Mousy: Local scenester blog-cum-record label All Things Go is gearing up for its second release, by UK-based Mausi. Per ATG: “…This four-piece…has mastered an infectious brand of dance-pop that had us hooked the moment we heard it.” And the single’s got “a shimmering piano line, bright male-female harmonies, and animated calls to ‘Dance! Dance! Dance!'”
Remember the Alamo: We said (and DCist said) that it was pretty dumb of Alamo Drafthouse & Cinema to append its latest operation—in Ashburn, Va.—with “D.C.” On TBD Arts, Andrew Beajon was like, “Nah, it’s cool.” But it wasn’t cool, because Alamo apparently realized that Ashburn is, you know, 30 miles away from the District, and has announced that it will rename the theater in accordance with its state-of-Virginia placement.
