ED­WARD GERO

Capitol File - - THE SOURCE: SCENE -

WHO: The four-time He­len Hayes Award–win­ning ac­tor is repris­ing his turn as An­tonin Scalia in John Strand’s The Orig­i­nal­ist. EARLY BIRD: “Jimmy T’s Place (501 E. Capi­tol St. SE) is the best fam­ily-run greasy-spoon break­fast diner in DC on Capi­tol Hill, and it has a real neigh­bor­hood feel.” WALK THIS WAY: “I re­ally en­joy tak­ing my friends on a late-night tour of the Na­tional Mall and the mon­u­ments.” FEEL­ING PECK­ISH: “Martin’s Tav­ern (1264 Wis­con­sin Ave. NW, 202-333-7370; mar­tin­stav­ern.com) has de­li­cious Ir­ish pub food, par­tic­u­larly their bread pud­ding, and a chance to sit in the Nixon or Kennedy booth.” UP BY LAW: “The Supreme Court (One First St. NE, 202-479-3000; supre­me­court.gov) is a mag­nif­i­cent build­ing to tour. Sit­ting in the court­room to wit­ness a hear­ing should be manda­tory for ev­ery Amer­i­can. The level of con­cen­trated, re­spect­ful pre­sen­ta­tion, lis­ten­ing, and ar­gu­ment is a life-al­ter­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.” The Orig­i­nal­ist plays July 7–30 at Arena Stage, 1101 Sixth St. SW, 202-554-9066; are­nastage.org.
