Wind Me Up, Maria!
Maria, a DC native and a rising senior at Georgetown, has a dilemma — it is the summer and she has not landed a job or an internship; and yet, all she wants to do is to write and perform Go-Go music. When she finally finds employment as a live-in tutor at a wealthy Georgetown household, she begins teaching the children about Go-Go. With its non-stop party groove fueled by congas, cowbells, timbales, and call and response interactions with the audience, Go-Go is the signature sound of DC. This musical will get you out of your seats and shaking your booty!
