Those who used to frequent the Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C. back in the day are very impressed with the newly renovated space, which opened to the public Monday, April 9, 2012. Names like Duke Ellington, Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross used to play the club, which many residents remember cutting school to go to as well. The theater will now offer a full-scale kitchen, bar and of course, live acts. (Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times)
