Councilman Marion Barry dances with Elizabeth Hicks at the opening celebration for the Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C. on Monday, April 9, 2012. Barry said he had heard about the Howard before moving to Washington in 1965, but once he arrived in town he had to go check it out. Hicks, who has lived in the District since the 1970s, said she used to see shows here all the time. (Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times)
