Theater Outing, Lope de Vega

I’ve secured the tickets for Wednesday, February 11, when we’ll be seeing the 7:30 performance of Dog in the Manger, at the Shakespeare Theatre in DC. The Shakespeare Theatre has two venues–we’ll be in the Lansburgh theater. Since I’m canceling class in order to go as a group to see the play, I think we should simply be able to meet there by 7:00pm. It will be important for everyone to be on time, as I will pick up and distribute the tickets there.

The address is 450 7th Street NW, Washington DC. It’s near Chinatown, the American Museum of Art, and the Verizon Center, for those of you who know the area.

Here’s a google map of the address:,+Washington,+DC+20004,+USA&sa=X&oi=map&ct=title

To get to the Lansburgh theater by metro from the Ballston metro stop:

  • Board the Orange line towards New Carrolton
  • Transfer at Metro Center to the Red line
  • Board the Red line towards Glenmont
  • Exit at Gallery Place/Chinatown
  • Use the Arena/7th Street exit and walk two blocks straight down 7th Street, downhill and away from the Verizon Center.

The trip should take about 30 minutes from Ballston to Gallery Place, but I would allow extra for the ever-tardy shuttle and walking the short distance from the metro to the theater, as well as arranging any smartrip card purchases or recharges. The metro fare is $2.25.

Driving and other directions/information is available online, at

My cell phone is listed on the syllabus, and I’ll have it with me in case of emergencies! You might consider going with a friend, or in a small group. To make sure everything goes smoothly, I would suggest leaving by at 6:00 at the latest, 5:30 to be safe.

Money, Money, Money!

There is an envelope in the Arts & Sciences office for you to put your $15 into. Ask for Stephanie or Caitlin, and they’ll know what to do!


Jasmyne and Autumn, who are scheduled to present on Fuente Ovejuna on the 11th, along with Alex and Tess, who are scheduled for ‘Tis Pity on the same date, should plan on moving their presentations to the 18th. We’ll have a big day of presentations, then, so please be sure to have caught up on all the reading–I’d like to jump directly into our discussion of John Ford’s play!
