Staged Reading of Thomas Geoghegan’s play MONTICELLO

Monticello has its premise in a historical fact: Thomas Jefferson did invite students from the University of Virginia to dine with him at Monticello. In 1826, the last year of Jefferson's life, Edgar Allan Poe enrolled at the university. What might have happened in an encounter between Jefferson and Poe? Geoghegan’s play – set on July 2, 1826, which was two days before the fiftieth anniversary of the Declaration of Independence – offers an answer.

Suede in concert


Join CHAW as we welcome Suede back to DC--in her first area concert in eight years!  We are thrilled to announce that you have not one, but two CHAWsome opportunities to hear this talented performer, whom the press has compared to "Adele meets Diana Krall meets Bette Midler - sassy, smooth and intoxicating.”  And, as always at CHAW, lots of options to ensure that this program is as accessible as possible to as many music-lovers as possible!
