Who didn’t binge-watch Bridgerton last winter? It’s true, we’ve been counting down the days until the next act of binging begins (season two drops March 25), and now something a bit more hands-on is happening here this spring. For those burning for more Regency-era romance, more Whistledown, more Simon Basset, we have the most entertaining invitation. Netflix, Shondaland, and fever are combining their savvy skills to bring Bridgerton to D.C. No, your eyes do not deceive you. Here, we call it “spring,” but Queen Charlotte calls it the social season, and since it is upon us, in true queen fashion, she’s hosting a ball in search of this year’s Diamond. Unfortunately, Regé-Jean Page will not be in attendance, but The Queen’s Ball: A Bridgerton Experience will take guests back to the era of Empire dresses, low necklines, and sexy rakes. During each 90-minute, interactive experience, a live string quartet will play from the show’s soundtrack, while guests tour immersive rooms, interact with high society characters, and relive their favorite scenes. Dance and acrobatic performances will amaze, while cocktails are served. March 30 through summer 2022, Whitfield Entertainment Group Studios, 1235 W St. NE. $49 and up.
