Hamilton shines on Broadway and the Kennedy Center -- try to get tix!

Hamilton shines on Broadway and the Kennedy Center -- try to get tix!

Hamilton in the hottest tickets on Broadway and in any other city it plays. The story of Alexander Hamilton the first Secretary of Treasury is brilliantly  told by  Lin-Manuel Miranda through a combination of glowing lyrics that encompass hip hop, jazz, blues, rap and R&B. The choreography at times is fast moving and high energy with a cast that is predominantly people of color. What a creative way to tell the story! 

Hamilton is currently on a 14-week run at the Kennedy Center through September 16th. If there is any way you can participate in this phenomenon, do it!

Helping to make Petworth a better neighborhood, one festival, jazz show and a few murals at a time

Helping to make Petworth a better neighborhood, one festival, jazz show and a few murals at a time

I know Tom Pipkin pretty well. As a community journalist and blogger, I learn about and get involved in a bunch of different projects that go on in the neighborhood, and many of the best ones have originated with Tom Pipkin. I've never met anyone who has so many cool, creative ideas... some are way out there, others are exactly what's needed. It's how he's turned his ideas into reality for the benefit of the community that make Tom the focus of our next Petworth Change Maker video.
