Guided tour of the special exhibition at the Corcoran
Gallery. Join the Washington DC Stanford Association for a spectacular docent-led
tour of the jewels, costumes, paintings, and icons from the Romanov dynasty.
The treasures have been assembled from five major Russian collections, including
the Kremlin’s limited access State Diamond Fund. The centerpiece of the
presentation–rare jewels and uncut gems–are traveling to the U.S. for the
first time in history.
What is “Capitol Steps?” It’s a musical political satire,
“funnier than the Congress,” with contributions from the Cast and the Congress.
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL writes. “The troupe has become a favorite on the
Washington social circuit. It brings chuckles…rave reviews…guffaws…and
bipartisan grins all around. The satire hits the mark.”
