12/14: Red States, Blue States and Walter Cronkite

Plus, "Play It Again Sam" and Speakeasy Stories

BORED TO DEATH: Stuck in an airport while waiting for a storm to end, two women -- one red-stater; one blue-stater --  find themselves striking up an often-hilarious conversation. "Walter Cronkite Is Dead" is at the Signature Theatre (4200 Campbell Ave., Arlington) through Dec. 26. Dec. 14's performance includes a discussion. 7:30 p.m.; $70-$75.

SPEAK UP: Local storytelling-as-an-art group SpeakeasyDC hosts its monthly open mike night at Town (2009 8th St. N.W.). December's holiday-appropriate theme is Mi Casa Es Tu Casa: Stories about being a guest, having guests, and hospitality. The lineup is full, which means the pressure's off you. 6:30 p.m. doors; 8 p.m. show; $10 cover.

YOU PLAYED IT FOR HER: The Woody Allen/Diane Keaton classic (well, the non-"Annie Hall" one), "Play It Again Sam" is showing at the American City Diner (5532 Connecticut Ave. N.W.). 8 p.m.; no cover.
