LOCATION: Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts - 2 E South St

Bob Schieffer is a beloved Washington insider who, as USA Today has said, “has been on a first-name basis with key DC figures for decades.” He is one of few journalists to have covered the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department, and Capitol Hill, and he understands the city like few others—from behind the scenes and behind the camera—to get to the heart of the politicians and the players who drive news. Schieffer’s signature style and magnetic presence make this presentation one you should not miss.

Cost: General Admission: $45 (Balcony); $60 (Orchestra/Floor); $85 (Box Seats), plus taxes and fees.
