Mystery Newsmaker September 11 & 12

Listen to WTOP this Saturday and Sunday morning during the 8am hour for the WTOP Mystery Newsmaker Contest. We’ll play the voice of someone you’ve heard in the news this week on WTOP. 

Be the first caller at 855-885-1035 to correctly identify the mystery newsmaker and win a pair of tickets to see Celia and Fidel at Arena Stage.

It’s 1980s Cuba and the revolution has reached a crazed tipping point. Fueled by a stagnant economy, 100,000 citizens have fled to the Peruvian Embassy in Cuba seeking asylum. As Fidel Castro grapples between his desire to maintain power and do what is best for his country, he turns to his closest confidant and political partner, Celia Sanchez, for answers. What kind of a leader is he — merciful or mighty? Imbued with magical realism, Eduardo Machado’s Celia and Fidel, Arena Stage’s seventh Power Play, imagines a fight between Cuba’s most influential female revolutionary and its most notorious political leader.

Playing October 8 — November 21, 2021.
