“Freeze Frame . . . Stop the Madness,” written, directed and choreographed by three-time Emmy Award-winner Debbie Allen, will soon hit the District with five shows at the Kennedy Center and promises to engage the audience in a fusion of dance, music, film and theater while addressing a world where gangs, poverty, violence and drugs have become everyday realities. The program (Oct. 27 – 30) serves as part of the Center’s year-long centennial celebration honoring the legacy of former President John F. Kennedy and will include a provocative post-performance panel discussion featuring Whoopi Goldberg as host (Oct. 29). Look for our review of the show and make sure you’re in the house for this not-to-be-missed show. For tickets call 800-444-1324 or go to www.kennedy-center.org.
