    By Jordan Wright (Photo/Scott Suchman) Director Michael Attenborough has brought an intriguing interpretation of Shakespeare’s timeless “As You Like It”to the Lansburgh Theatre. The play is so timeless that the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s latest production features an amalgam of period costumes, from Elizabethan dresses and 1940s-era fedoras and trench coats to hillbilly-inspired Daisy Dukes and Carhartt overalls, without missing a beat. Costume designer Jonathan Fensom makes it one of the refreshing aspects of this reimagined production. Attenborough mixes up accents too. Rosalind…

Built in 1826 on what then was the outskirts of town, the Alexandria Jail cost more than $10,000 to construct, and replaced an earlier prison a decade older that was located in a building at the foot of Wolfe Street.

Too many of us don’t get either because these things remind us that we’re getting old. But here’s the deal: Getting old is part of life. We can’t stop it. In fact, it’s when we stop getting older that the real trouble starts. My AARP card cost me $16. Two months after I received it, I checked into a hotel and got a $20 discount off of the normal room rate. How cool is that? Now, I’m making money on my AARP card! And…
