There's a new place to hear live music and see performances in D.C. Well, it's not exactly new.
The restored theater has gone through some difficult times. In its heyday, it hosted big names like Duke Ellington, but closed after D.C.'s 1968 riots. It reopened in 1994 and has been known to draw big audiences to U Street by hosting productions from groups such as Arena Stage.
