With more than 30 million YouTube views, the musical duo of Igudesman and Joo have turned a vacuum cleaner, boxer shorts, a coffee cream frother and Mozart into an international sensation. With their stage show, A Little Nightmare Music, Russian violinist Aleksey Igudesman and Korean pianist Richard Hyung-ki Joo are filling concert halls and stadiums with the roar of laughter inspired by their surreal blend of classical music and pop culture. Both classically-trained musicians, the two take a musical genre that's often seen as anything but funny and shake it up with a bunch of craziness where everything goes wrong on purpose. From a musician in boxers to a snoring violin, anything can happen and pretty much everything does. And it's not just classical -- in addition to Mozart, you'll hear bits of samurai movies, The Simpsons and West Side Story throughout the show. Learn More

Hilarious political satire! I had quite a few loud guffaws escape me before the night was over. It is always fun to see local newscasters / traffic reporters do the "news" throughout the show. My absolute FAVORITE part was when they did a brilliant spoof of the Hunger games. The actress who played the "Effie" spoof was truly hysterical. As long as you don't take yourself or politics too seriously - you'll have a great time!

About the Ticket Supplier: HexagonIn November 1955, a group of young Washingtonians who had been active in college theatre got together to put on a show of their own. Its format was based on the popular NBC Sunday night radio show "Monitor." The group decided to make the show a social event for charity or "we would have practically no audience." The organizers called the new group Hexagon since it was "twice as good as Triangle because we had girls."
Hexagon has grown dramatically over the years. Its broad civic mission--using theatrical arts as a vehicle for improving the lives of others within the community--has also grown.
