PF EXCLUSIVE: Gridiron Reprise tickets (Sunday, Mar. 3)

For more than 130 years, a great Washington tradition known as the Gridiron Show has skewered Presidents and congressional leaders, political candidates and journalists. The Gridiron Club and Foundation first regales official Washington at a white-tie dinner on Saturday night in March with satire and songs. The next day, the club puts on another performance – known as the Gridiron Sunday Reprise - for friends, family and select outside groups.

The 2019 Sunday Reprise will be held Sunday, March 3, 2019, in the ballroom of the Washington Renaissance Hotel, 999 Ninth Street NW. The reception, which includes beer, wine, soft drinks and munchies, begins at 2 p.m. and the show starts at 3 p.m. and ends by 5 p.m. Dress is business casual.

What you will see during the show is Gridiron members -- well-known faces that might include John King of CNN, Andrea Mitchell of NBC, Judy Woodruff of PBS and Bret Baier of Fox News -- performing hilarious songs and skits in costume. Syndicated columnist Mark Shields relays highlights of the speeches that were delivered the previous night, which typically include remarks by the President – or other member of the administration -  and a leading Democrat and leading Republican. Running the musical performance is the director of the President’s Own, the United States Marine Band, Lt. Col. Jason Fettig, the Club's musical director.
