Will the storm, forecasted to start this morning and predicted to be the biggest snowstorm since 1996, close Metro (the system will be shut down after 8 inches accumulation)? If so, count on most performances being canceled throughout the weekend. We’ll bring you the announced closures as they happen.
Here’s what we’ve got so far:
The elaborate 5th year birthday concert celebration scheduled tonight at the Music Center at Strathmore featuring Emily Skinner, Rachel York and Julia Murney is the area’s first announced cancellation due to weather.
Ticket holders may exchange their tickets for another similarly priced ticket to any other performance presented by Strathmore such as Love Swings with Rachel York, Julia Murney and Emily Skinner on Sunday, March 28 at 2 p.m.
The celebration along with a spectacular 5th Annicersary cake will be held at the Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour performance on Friday, February 19 at 8 p.m featuring jazz artists Kenny Barron, Regina Carter, Kurt Elling, Russell Malone, Jonathan Blake, Kiyoshi Kitagawa and Lena Seikaly and her band.
— We’ll have monoguist Mike Daisey around for one more day. The Friday and Saturday performances of The Last Cargo Cult at Woolly Mammoth have been cancelled. Sunday performances are on schedule, and a Monday show has been added.
— The Friday and Saturday performances of John Milosich’s solo show The Race . New dates coming
— Ford’s Theatre is offering ticket exchanges for The Rivalry, and has added a 7:30pm evening performance on closing day, Feb 14.
