The show must go on, even in the face of a government shutdown.
Without work, furloughed NASA employees have more time to learn their lines and rehearse for their dinner theater production of Stephen Sondheim’s “Into the Woods,” scheduled for performances Oct. 25 through Nov. 23.
Video by Washington Post TV’s “The Fold.” MAD Theater is a special interest club at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center devoted to the theatrical arts, in which employees, contractors and their immediate families mount major productions in the fall, winter and spring.
While they normally perform at the Barney & Bea Recreation Center at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., 15 miles northwest of the U.S. Capitol, the shutdown has closed their performance space. The group has potential alternative performances spaces should the shutdown continue past Oct. 25.
