Capital City Productions' "Mamma Mia!" has proven to be so popular - before it even opens! - that four additional performances have been added to the schedule. ROB CROUSE tells us why these encore shows come at a lower ticket price. Also, BOB HOHENSTEIN invites everyone to take part in The District's 'Summer Restaurant Week' June 9-15. He says, so far, 35 restaurants are on board to "stamp your passport!" (4:45) June 4, 2019

Why take part in The District's 'Restaurant Week'? NICKIE DAVIS says because "we offer just the most unique, locally-owned businesses...there are just things you're never going to find anywhere outside of The District." Additional guest: Gunter Hans owner LYDIA MELTON | Also, HEATHER LAMB takes us behind-the-scenes of Vox Magazine. Now in its 20th year, this student-run, city-centered publication recently underwent aesthetic changes that (hopefully) reflect a modern era of lifestyle journalism. (3:06) January 11, 2019
