Regular readers may recall my posts a few months ago (here and here) about a terrific show called “Arguendo,” by avant-garde theater company Elevator Repair Service (ERS). “Arguendo” is a sort of topsy-turvy dramatization of the oral argument in Barnes v. Glen Theatre, an important Supreme Court case about nude dancing and the First Amendment. (I serve on the board of directors of ERS, and I am an adviser on this project.) After its acclaimed run at the Public Theater in New York City this fall, I am delighted to report that “Arguendo” is coming to Washington.
“Arguendo” will run at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre, April 1-27. April 10 is “Volokh Conspiracy Night,” which will include a post-show discussion with co-conspirators Stewart Baker, Randy Barnett, Ilya Somin and me. Use the code “VOLOKH” for discounted $40 tickets that night. The show starts at 8 p.m., but I have it on good authority that the bar will open early. We hope to see you there.
