    It's … Hideoutrageous!

    There's a stage upstairs, there's a stage downstairs, there's coffee all over the place and all sorts of shows and classes here. This Thursday brings you a Threefer of improv. Friday warns Don't Interrupt Me!, and follows with the Big Bash, TheatreDome, and the bilingual improvised telenovela of ¡ESCANDALO!. Then, hold onto your matmos and wubfur jacket, citizen, because, after Maestro RAW on Saturday, it's time to meet that Sexy Future Space Lady. And then? Why, it's the can't-miss competitive improv donnybrook of Maestro! See website for more.

Plus, The Congressional Workout that aims to keep politicians in shape while running from Capitol Hill. Bonus: That sexy magician Ray Anderson is going to walk right through a mirror. No? You don't think so? Then you tell me how it's done, bubba.
