It was apparently VIP night Thursday at the Kennedy Center for the third performance of the one-man play “Thurgood,” featuring Laurence Fishburne’s powerful portrayal of the late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. The play, a must-see for the Washington, D.C., legal community, plays through June 20 before it leaps to the left coast in Los Angeles.

Security was evident as Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. and Justice Stephen Breyer and spouses, and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made their way to their fifth row-center seats at the Eisenhower Theater. We also spotted White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and former White House counsel Gregory Craig in the full house.
