"The Apollo of Washington, D.C." is back. The 102-year old Howard Theater, where music veterans Dionne Warwick and Smokey Robinson once performed, lifts its curtain once again. The theater's new operators, from the New York-based Blue Note

after hearing encouragement from Bill Cosby and other entertainers who
remember the theater's heyday.
