The first event isn’t until today, but officials at the PyeongChang Games in South Korea already have set at least one record: most condoms distributed to athletes at a Winter Olympics. A local manufacturer and an AIDS prevention group donated 110,000 condoms, surpassing the record of 100,000, The Korea Times reported this week. That’s an average of 38 condoms for each of the 2,925 athletes participating. (EXPRESS)

Sorry, Nancy: Let Gravelly Point keep historic name town is built on gravel and its little brother, sand. And a heck of a lot of it came from the area around Gravelly Point, scooped from the bottom of the Potomac like so much Klondike gold. As lovely as Nancy Reagan may have been, she didn’t literally provide the foundation for our city. Take the Pentagon. In “The Pentagon: A History,” author Steve Vogel recounts the construction of the famed fivesided office building, which required massive amounts of gravel-hungry concrete. “The location chosen to construct such a building was a wise one, from the standpoint of the basic ingredients needed,” Vogel writes. “Just south of the site, beneath the waters of the Potomac and below a layer of soft mud, lay a boundless supply of sand and gravel.” It was these deposits that gave the area its name.

The fact is, Gravelly Point has a perfectly good name already, a name that — like those other landmarks — has the rather commendable quality of being refreshingly honest. Gravelly Point, on the Potomac just above Reagan National Airport (don’t get me started), is named after gravel. Gravel, you say? Ugh, you say? Boring, you say? To which I say, pshaw. Gravel was created by the great geologic processes that have raked this planet since its birth 4 billion years ago. This

Gravel from Gravelly Point Park was essential in building Washington.

Look at a geologic map of Washington and its environs, and you will see a lot of gravel. “The Capitol is built on a hill of gravel,” says geologist Tony Fleming, author of “Geologic Atlas of the City of Alexandria, Virginia and Vicinity.” We should be celebrating this seemingly modest product of nature. It began as mountains, survived baptism

‘Feeding one man’s ego’ D.C. leaders pan President Trump’s call for a grand — and costly — military parade

Hogan shows off scars after skin cancer surgery Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is showing off his battle scars in what he says is his second successful fight against cancer. The governor sent out a selfie Wednesday on Twitter showing two surgical scars on his forehead. The accompanying text read, “Larry 2, Cancer 0.” Hogan said last month he had two patches of basal-cell and squamous-cell skin cancer on his face. (AP) President Trump was inspired to have a military parade after seeing one over the summer in Paris.

city, the impact on safety, the impact on pulling personnel, the impact on our roadways and, quite frankly, the attention it would attract,” Bowser said Wednesday. “Usually when you see big military parades, it’s celebrating an end of a war, and I don’t think that’s been announced.” An obvious cost of a military parade would be repaving asphalt wrecked by tanks riding down Pennsylvania Avenue, last repaved after Trump’s inauguration. One of the U.S. Army’s most common armored vehicles, the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, for example, weighs 27.6 tons — about 14 times heavier than a 2016 Chrysler 300 sedan.

While the city could take symbolic measures to oppose the parade, it has little power to dictate to the Pentagon and the federal government. “The reality, though, is that we can’t stop the president from marching,” Council member David Grosso said. Bowser’s spokeswoman, Anu Rangappa, said the city would have more to say once it hears from the Pentagon or the White House. “In the meantime, we do know that just like the wall, he will have to pay for it,” she said.

THE DISTRICT The D.C. Council had a simple message on Twitter for President Trump’s proposed grand military parade along Pennsylvania Avenue: “Tanks, but no tanks.” Local officials are panning the prospect of an unprecedented show of military force that would leave D.C. on the hook for security, cleanup and repair to the roads — even if the federal government reimburses its costs later. The early jeers suggest the tensions ahead if Trump proceeds with an elaborate procession in a city that overwhelmingly voted against him and has emerged as an epicenter of resistance. “I don’t think anyone believes this would be about trying to honor men and women who serve our country,” said Council member Charles Allen. “This would only be about feeding one man’s ego.” Trump had long mused about an American military parade similar to the Bastille Day event he witnessed in France that featured uniformed troops, armored vehicles and fighter jets flying overhead. It apparently turned into a presidential directive when Trump met with top Pentagon generals in January, officials told The Washington Post. Mayor Muriel Bowser — whose administration is responsible for much of the city services associated with a parade — was skeptical about the idea. “We would always be concerned about the impact on the

Norovirus at Olympics has officials scrambling

PYEONGCHANG, SOUTH KOREA Officials are fretting on the eve of the biggest planned event in South Korea in years — not because of anything related to North Korea and national security, but in an attempt to arrest the spread of norovirus at the PyeongChang Games. No one in South Korea wants these games associated more with disease than athletics in the manner that Zika, a mosquitoborne disease that causes rare birth defects in a small proportion of cases, loomed over the Rio Olympics in 2016. Norovirus is a common, infectious bug that causes unpleasant symptoms including diarrhea and vomiting but doesn’t require medical treatment; most people recover on their own after a few days. Large outbreaks of the disease have previously been reported in restaurants, cruise ships, nursing homes, schools and building complexes that share a common water source. According to Olympics organizers, the norovirus spread began Sunday, when private security workers staying in the Jinbu area of PyeongChang started complaining of headaches, stomach pain and diarrhea. About 1,200 people were kept in their rooms during tests for

the virus. Local and national health officials say they have investigated 1,023 people. Games organizers said Wednesday that 32 workers are being treated for norovirus and are in quarantine, including three foreigners. Because the sick workers handled security, 900 military personnel have been brought in to work at 20 venues until the sick and sequestered can return to work. Officials are conducting an epidemiological survey to track the disease’s spread. A preliminary five-day survey of water for cooking and drinking has come up negative for norovirus. Health officials say they are also inspecting restaurants

and all food facilities linked to the Olympics. Notices have been posted around the Olympics urging regular, 30-second hand-washing sessions and the thorough boiling of water and washing of fruits and vegetables, among other precautions. The virus spread appears to feed a lingering South Korean sense of worry that the games will be filled with glitches and mistakes. Despite the official response, South Koreans have criticized the allegedly poor preparations at the Olympics, and what they believe was a slow reaction to initial reports of the virus.

Ancient Briton had dark skin and blue eyes SCIENCE DNA from a 10,000-year-old skeleton found in an English cave suggests the oldest-known Briton had dark skin and blue eyes, researchers said Wednesday. Scientists from Britain’s Natural History Museum and University College London analyzed the genome of “Cheddar Man,” who was found in Cheddar Gorge in southwest England in 1903. Scientists led by museum DNA expert Ian Barnes drilled into the skull to extract DNA from bone powder. They say analysis indicates he had blue eyes, dark curly hair and “dark to black” skin pigmentation. Dutch “paleo artists” Alfons and Adrie Kennis created a likeness of Cheddar Man based on the British scientists’ findings. The researchers say the evidence suggests that Europeans’ pale skin tones developed much later than originally thought. “It seems that pale eyes entered Europe long before pale skin or blond hair, which didn’t come along until after the arrival of farming,” said Tom Booth, a postdoctoral researcher at the museum. Cheddar Man is believed to have migrated to Europe from the Middle East, and would have been one of a tiny population of hunter-gatherers in Britain at the time. Scientists, who have been studying his skeleton for decades, say he died in his 20s. JILL LAWLESS (AP)

POLITICS One of President Trump’s top White House aides resigned Wednesday following allegations of domestic abuse leveled against him by his two ex-wives. Staff secretary Rob Porter said in a written statement that allegations that became public this week are “outrageous” and “simply false.” Porter said photos published of his former spouses were taken nearly 15 years ago and do not tell the complete story. He said he will leave the White House after a transition period. “I have been transparent and

truthful about these vile claims, but I will not further engage publicly with a coordinated smear campaign,” Porter said in a written statement. Porter’s former wives recounted physical, verbal and emotional abuse they say he subjected them to during their marriages. Porter, 40, joined the administration at its start in January 2017 and has been credited with working with chief of staff John Kelly to control the flow of information to the president. The Daily Mail published a statement from Kelly referring to Porter as a “man of true integrity and honor and I can’t say enough good things about him.” Porter, well-liked throughout the White House, lost internal

The lower floors of some buildings were reduced to piles of concrete, glass and other debris after the quake likely caused soil liquefaction, when the ground takes on a fluid-like state under intense stress.

Chancellor Angela Merkel reaches deal to form new German coalition government; approval of deal remains

BOISE, IDAHO Somewhere in Boise, two 500-year-old skeletons discovered in Idaho’s high desert plains are stored in a secure place as three Native American tribes try to claim the remains. U.S. officials won’t say where the bones of a young adult and a child are being kept as the U.S. Bureau of Land Management assesses the claims by the Shoshone-Bannock tribes, Shoshone-Paiute tribes and the Nez Perce tribe. The skeletons were found in such good condition last April that Idaho authorities initially treated the site as a possible crime scene. But carbon dating tests from a lab in Florida found the young adult and the child or teen lived sometime during the 1400s to 1600s. Elmore County investigators were so surprised that they sent bone samples to be checked at another lab in Arizona, which returned similar results. The Bureau of Land Management is using a process in the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act to return the skeletons. A decision is possible this spring, an official said. The tribes don’t let researchers conduct tests on remains of ancestors, and anthropologists say the unique nature of the find means that experts are losing an opportunity to learn more about how Native Americans lived centuries ago.

‘Genuine breakthrough’ Senate’s two-year, bipartisan spending deal could finally break legislative gridlock Pence: N. Korea to face harshest sanctions yet

ERIC A WERNER AND MIKE DEBONIS

POLITICS Vice President Pence said in Japan on Wednesday that the Trump administration plans to roll out its harshest sanctions yet against North Korea. “I’m announcing that the United States of America will soon unveil the toughest and most aggressive round of economic sanctions on North Korea ever — and we will continue to isolate North Korea until it abandons its nuclear and ballistic missile programs once and for all,” Pence said at a news conference alongside Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The vice president offered no details on the sanctions, which his staff said the Treasury Department would unveil in the coming days. Pence was on his first stop of a five-day Asia trip intended to pressure Kim Jong Un’s regime toward denuclearization. Pence heads today to South Korea, where he plans to meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and attend the opening of the Winter Olympics. In the joint news conference, Pence reiterated his administration’s commitment to the safety and security of the Japanese people. “The era of strategic patience is over,” he said. “All options are on the table, and the United States has deployed some of our most advanced military assets to Japan and the wider region, to protect our homeland and our allies.” ASHLEY PARKER AND ANNA

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell praised the spending deal.

new agreement is the first to be struck under Republican control of the White House and both chambers of Congress. In December, GOP leaders muscled through a tax cut expected to reduce revenue by $1.5 trillion over the coming decade. According to outlines of the budget deal shared by congressional aides, existing spending limits written into law would be raised by a combined $296 billion through 2019. The agreement includes an additional $160 billion in uncapped military and State Department funding, and about $90 billion more would be spent on disaster aid for victims of recent hurricanes and wildfires. Some of the funding is reserved for programs favored by lawmakers of both parties: research conducted by the National Institutes of Health, as well as transportation and water infrastructure. The Children’s Health Insurance Program would be extended through 2028, and the federal fund for community health centers would see a two-year extension. Lawmakers said the deal

HOUSE TV

POLITICS Congressional leaders unveiled a sweeping budget deal Wednesday that would add more than $500 billion in federal spending over the next two years, delivering the military funding boost demanded by President Trump alongside the increase in domestic programs sought by Democrats. With a government shutdown deadline coming early Friday morning, the accord holds the promise to break a months-long partisan standoff centered on federal spending, although roadblocks remain. In a major lift for the package, the White House signaled its support, with press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders calling it “steps forward.” But several Republicans strenuously opposed a plan that would add to the nation’s mounting fiscal imbalance. “This spending bill is a debt junkie’s dream,” said Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., warning of trillion-dollar-per-year deficits. “I’m not only a no, I’m a hell no.” The boost is the latest instance in which Republican lawmakers elected on promises of fiscal rectitude have abandoned those pledges after gaining the reins of power and facing the reality of governing and delivering on competing political priorities. The budget deal would increase discretionary spending — the government functions funded yearto-year through congressional appropriations — by 21 percent over existing budget caps. Those caps are rooted in a 2011 agreement struck after GOP lawmakers threatened to reject an increase in the federal debt limit unless President Obama and Democrats controlled government spending. Bipartisan deals raised the caps in 2013 and 2015, and the

She said that she would lead opposition to the two-year budget agreement, which does not address immigration. Pelosi surpassed the 1909 speech of then-Rep. Champ Clark, D-Mo., who delivered five hours and 15 minutes of remarks against a tariff overhaul. (TWP)

Top Senate leaders from both parties called the deal a breakthrough and a prelude to more bipartisan cooperation. “This bill represents a significant bipartisan step forward,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. “I hope we can build on this bipartisan momentum and make 2018 a year of significant achievement for Congress, for our constituents and for the country we all love.” Senate Minority L eader Charles Schumer, D -N.Y., called the agreement “a genuine breakthrough.” “This budget deal is the first real sprout of bipartisanship, and it should break the long cycle of spending crises,” he said. It was unclear how quickly the Senate would vote on the plan, but opposition to the deal was mounting in the House.

The switch from a planned Skype interview came after the AP reported that Francis received a letter in 2015 from Juan Carlos Cruz, a survivor of Chile’s most notorious pedophile priest. Cruz wrote the pope that one of the priest’s proteges, Bishop Juan Barros, was present for his abuse and did nothing, and questioned Francis’ decision to make him a bishop. (AP)

More than 300 child soldiers were released Wednesday by armed groups in South Sudan, the secondlargest such release since civil war began five years ago. Over 19,000 children are thought to have been recruited by all sides. The “laying down of the guns” ceremony for 87 girls and 224 boys was the first step in a process that should see at least 700 child soldiers freed in the coming weeks, the United Nations said. The U.N. has facilitated the release of almost 2,000 child soldiers so far. Advocacy groups say child recruitment continues, even as South Sudan says it has committed to ending the practice. (AP)

The Chicago-based owner of the Los Angeles Times completed its sale of the newspaper Wednesday in a surprise move that spells the end of its troubled relationship with the news outlet, which recently included rapid turnover in the paper’s top ranks and clashes between management and journalists. The buyer is Patrick Soon-Shiong, a Los Angeles-area physician and a major shareholder of the paper’s former parent company, Tronc. Soon-Shiong is the billionaire founder and CEO of NantHealth. As part of the $500 million deal, he will also buy the San Diego UnionTribune. (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Gortat tweet irks Wall

Injured point guard takes center’s ‘team’ comment as a personal attack on his play WIZARDS Teammates John Wall and Marcin Gortat engaged in a longdistance, less-than-friendly backand-forth Tuesday. With the Wizards in Philadelphia to conclude their road trip, Wall did a series of interviews via satellite to promote his partnership with Kumho Tires. And the five-time All-Star, in his first interviews since undergoing left knee surgery last month, sparked interest for comments directed at Washington’s center. The point guard, sidelined until at least mid-March, took exception to how the team’s ball movement has been portrayed in his absence. Wall referenced a tweet that Gortat sent Feb. 1 after the Wizards defeated Toronto.

“Unbelievable win tonight! Great ‘team’ victory!” Gortat wrote, with quotation marks notably around the word team. “I know I’m a team player. I average almost 10 assists a game,” Wall told SportsCenter on Tuesday. “I’m very prideful in finding my teammates and getting guys easy shots. Even more just shocking hearing it from him and understand he gets the most assists from me and gets the most spoon-fed baskets ever.” Wall also had thoughts on the recent “everybody eats” line — first used by shooting guard Bradley Beal following the win over the Raptors in which Washington shared the ball for 30 assists. That phrase was interpreted by some fans and media

Celtics visit tonight The Wizards will be without star point guard John Wall for a while, but the East-leading Celtics — who visit Washington tonight (8, TNT) — have point guard Kyrie Irving back on the court. Irving returned Tuesday at Toronto after missing three games with a bruised quad. He played 22 minutes and scored 17 points in a 111-91 loss. (EXPRESS)

outlets as a shot at Wall. “That was funny to me,” he told NBC Sports Washington. “I’m one of the top point guards that passes the ball more than anybody. … If any guys have a problem with me they can talk to me face to face as a man.”

Wall has averaged 9.3 assists this season but doesn’t qualify for the NBA leaders because he has missed 17 of 54 games. The Thunder’s Russell Westbrook leads the league at 10.3. The Wizards had won five in a row since Wall went out. That streak ended Tuesday with a 115-102 loss to the 76ers. Afterward, Beal downplayed the incident, calling the Wizards “tight,” and Gortat gave his side. “We talk about team win with 30 assists a game, everybody played for each other,” Gortat said. “He felt it was a different way and he came back with that kind of a comment. So, now we got to ask each other questions, who’s attacking who?”

Until Tuesday night, Colts GM Chris Ballard thought he was all set to introduce Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels as Indianapolis’ new coach Wednesday. But Patriots owner Robert Kraft interceded Tuesday, persuading McDaniels to stay, according to Boston media reports. Kraft pulled off a similar trick 18 years ago, hiring Bill Belichick as head coach after persuading him to back out of a deal to coach the Jets. McDaniels was also in the running to coach the 49ers a year ago, until Kraft gave him a raise. One day, when Belichick leaves, the top job appears likely to belong to McDaniels. He’d better hope that Kraft doesn’t make another last-minute move with someone else when that time comes. (TWP)

SOUTH KOREA When many athletes and officials woke up Wednesday, the temperature at PyeongChang Olympic Stadium was 3 below zero. Sidewalks in the nearby mountain cluster were sparsely populated all day, save for some athletes, officials and media scurrying from building to building. But competitors and fans can’t stay inside throughout the PyeongChang Games. With the wind chill at the stadium projected at 14 degrees for the opening ceremony Friday night, there’s concern for their well-being. Spectators will be given kits with a poncho, a blanket, a beanie hat and heat packs for their seat, hands and feet. Japan pulled athletes from a team welcome ceremony Wednesday in the coastal town of Gangneung because of the cold, but most athletes don’t seem concerned with temperatures for Friday night.

The Terrapins on Wednesday signed four-star corner Kenric Montgomery Jr. of Tampa, who chose them over Nebraska, Louisville and UCLA. It was a key recruiting victory for coach DJ Durkin after Maryland lost a commitment from H.D. Woodson corner Noah Boykin, who chose Notre Dame. The Terps’ class was ranked 28th overall by 247 Sports.

The Hokies landed linebacker Dax Hollifield, one of the most recruited players from North Carolina. Hollifield chose Tech over North Carolina, Stanford and Clemson, The Charlotte Observer reported. The Hokies needed help at the position because of the departure of last season’s top linebackers, Tremaine Edmunds and Andrew Motuapuaka.

Georgia entered Wednesday with the top class, according to 247 Sports, and confirmed that status by flipping a pair of four-star linebackers, one who had been committed to Michigan (Otis Reese) and another who had been committed to Alabama (Quay Walker). Ohio State finished with the second-ranked class. Texas was third with its best class in years.

Rasheed Walker, the anchor of the offensive line at North Point High in Waldorf, Md., and one of the state’s top prospects, was in no rush to decide on his college. But on Monday he told Penn State coach James Franklin that he wanted to be a Nittany Lion. Walker confirmed that Wednesday, selecting Penn State over his other finalists, Ohio State and Virginia Tech.

You don’t need to go to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras in style. Plenty of bars, restaurants and other venues are bringing Fat Tuesday celebrations (and beads) to D.C. Here are a few worth parading around town for. RUDI GREENBERG (EXPRESS)

Mardi Gras Family Day

DC Mardi Party

Mardi Gras at The Wharf

Mardi Gras Extravaganza

The Anacostia Community Museum is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, so it’s upping the ante for its annual Mardi Gras Family Day (1901 Fort Place SE; Sat., 11 a.m.-4 p.m., free). For the first time, the festival will be held in the main gallery of the museum, which will play host to art workshops, clowns, magicians, fortune-tellers, facepainters, storytellers, musicians, a parade and more. A free shuttle will run to and from the Anacostia Metro station during the day.

Though it’s not the most authentic celebration, the DC Mardi Party (Sat., 1-9 p.m., $25) is pretty close to spending an afternoon on Bourbon Street. The Chinatown bar crawl begins at 10 Tavern (707 G St. NW), where live jazz will be playing, and attendees will check in (between 1 and 4 p.m.) to pick up a mask and beads. Tickets also grant admission to all the venues (Fado Irish Pub, Jackpot, Rocket Bar and Fuel Pizza) and drink and food specials, like $3 Abita beers, at each locale.

Start off your Fat Tuesday at 6 p.m. with a parade — full of brass bands, floats and bead-tossing — through The Wharf (starts at Seventh Street SW) and ending with fireworks. Then head over to Union Stage (740 Water St. SW; Tue., 7:30 p.m., $15-$25) for the venue’s Mardi Gras concert, which includes sets from local funk and soul cover band Magnolia Blue and Baltimore rocker Cris Jacobs, who’s been known to play a song or two written by NOLA funk legends The Meters.

The all-you-can-eat — and -drink — party returns to Union Market’s Dock 5 (1309 Fifth St. NE; Tue., 6-10 p.m., $65) for a second year. A bevy of D.C. food and drink pros, including David Guas, Spike Mendelsohn and Gina Chersevani, are cooking up a Louisiana-style feast while local mixologists compete to see who can whip up the best hurricane. Don’t forget to bring your best mask and beads for the costume contest. Proceeds benefit DC Central Kitchen.

Diane Gross, 48, and Khalid Pitts, 50, owners of Cork Wine Bar & Market on 14th Street, run one of the more popular date spots in D.C., but they’re overdue for a romantic day of their own. “Every married couple that has kids, one of the biggest things they want — besides sleep — is to spend time with [each other],” Pitts says. “There’s always something going on.” He’s not exaggerating: The couple recently moved Cork Wine Bar from its home of 10 years to the second floor of their Cork Market a few blocks away, uniting the two businesses under one roof. The new restaurant is about the same size as its predecessor, but has two bars instead of one. That’s because the couple are self-proclaimed “sit-at-the-bar” types. “You’re a little closer to each other,” Pitts says, “but also you’re able to get the vibe of what’s going on all around you.” To get even closer, Gross and Pitts have dreamed up a perfect day together.

DANIEL MARTINEZ

Picking up the pieces of ‘Chess’

You’ll want to turn your phone off for this one

This is one of two major revivals of “Chess” this year; the other is in London’s West End. Is it the current political climate that invites its comeback? Nothing to do with political climate, as far as I’m concerned. It’s a period piece set in the late ’70s, early ’80s. People can draw modern parallels if they like, I suppose. Fans seem very pleased that it’s coming back in a major way. It was the enthusiasm of Danny Strong, [producer] Tom Hulce and Michael Mayer that got it back on the rails.

Lyricist Tim Rice says “politics and passion” inspired him to write “Chess.”

What was the origin of the piece? I was intrigued by the Fischer/ Spassky [world championship match] in 1972 and the way it was taken over by Cold War manipulators. Also interesting were the domestic and personal aspects of the players. I play chess badly but chess wasn’t an inspiration. Politics and passion were. How does recording an entire work as a concept album first, as you did with “Chess,” “Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Evita,” help or hurt the resulting stage production? It depends if it’s any good, which the original “Chess” album was. It gives the writers a chance to create the score (words and music) without distractions of the complexities of theatrical production — which certainly come later. Do you think “Chess” has been given its best shot on Broadway? Obviously not its best shot. The

In “La Foto (A Selfie Affair),” a new play at GALA Hispanic Theatre (3333 14th St. NW; through Feb. 25, $30-$45), it takes just one sexy photo from Laura, above right, to her married ex, Dennis, left, to ruin the lives of their loved ones. But writer Gustavo Ott says his comedy, presented in Spanish with English surtitles, is, in a weird way, about love. LORI McCUE (EXPRESS) How did you begin this story? It’s a true story that happened to a friend of mine. It went to exactly what I wanted to talk about, which was how society is generally bullying each other nowadays. So I did a lot of research, particularly by asking my female friends. I also researched the world of teenagers through my daughter and her friends. I was surprised that this discussion among the teenage group was way deeper than among the middle-aged people.

SHAY FREY

STAGE “Chess,” the rock musical about a Cold War tournament of the board game, seemed like a sure thing ahead of its Broadway debut in 1988: The initial concept album — with music written by half of ABBA — had been a critical and commercial success in Europe, and delivered a bona fide American radio smash in “One Night in Bangkok.” Meanwhile, the original show was in the middle of what would be a nearly three-year run in London’s West End. But the Broadway version — heavily retooled from the original — was largely panned, closed after just two months and was nominated for only two Tony Awards. Now, the story is getting another shot. A new version of “Chess,” directed by Michael Mayer (Broadway’s “Spring Awakening”) with a new book by Danny Strong (who has written for TV’s “Empire” and “Game Change”), debuts at the Kennedy Center next week in a semistaged concert version. Raul Esparza and Ramin Karimloo star as the rival players inspired by Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky. The mastermind of the original show is lyricist Tim Rice, 73, who created “Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Evita” with Andrew Lloyd Webber and wrote the songs for Disney’s animated film “The Lion King” with Elton John. We checked in with Rice via email to discuss his latest big move, which he hopes leads “Chess” back to Broadway.

KENNEDY CENTER

Lyricist Tim Rice’s musical gets another go with a revival at the Kennedy Center

Raul Esparza and Karen Olivo rehearse for the revival of “Chess,” which will be presented in a semi-staged concert format at the Kennedy Center.

original Broadway show was not good — although not as bad as that bloke on The New York Times [critic Frank Rich] stated. It’s only had one run, and after zilch at the Tonys, the plug got pulled. Do you think “Chess” will ever become a film, as many as your works have? I hope “Chess” will hit the big

screen. It seems a natural to me. Good venues, tunes and politics. It opens here on Valentine’s Day. Is it more of a love story than we give it credit for? I didn’t notice the date. It is a love story though. Lotsa good love songs. ROGER CATLIN (FOR EXPRESS)

Kennedy Center, 2700 F St NW; Wed. through Feb. 18, sold out.

Was it tough to figure out how to show social media onstage? In this play, I have to really be in control of the technological things that we’re using. So I knew that flat-screens had to be around the stage. It’s funny that this show about an errant sext is playing around Valentine’s Day. It’s about lost love, not only the love you lost in the past, but the love you lost in yourself. Laura is trying to recover the love she had for herself. I think that’s the way to celebrate Valentine’s Day: with the idea of lost love.

Is your date artsy, craftsy or neither?

Put your fledgling relationship to the test on a sinking ship, where you will have to solve puzzles to make it out alive. Even if you don’t succeed, perhaps you’ll find a way to fit two people on Rose’s enormous floating door.

A group of 16-year-old girls turn into warriors on the field in this Pulitzer finalist play.

Feel free to hoot and holler at a “rowdy screening” of “Fifty Shades Freed.”

Rowdy ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ If you’re looking to get your Valentine’s Day celebration started early AND have it involve a little kink, you could go to any old screening of “Fifty Shades Freed,” out Friday. Or you could go all-in at one of Alamo Drafthouse’s “rowdy screenings,” where audiences are allowed to talk sexy back to the screen. Think of being allowed to WOOOOOO at Christian’s butt or yell to Ana that she is so boring she makes flour seem spicy. Unfortunately, it’s BYOWCH, as the theater will not be providing whips, chains or handcuffs. Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, 20575 Easthampton Plaza, Ashburn, Va.; Fri. & Sat., 8:20 p.m., Sun. & Wed., 7:40 p.m., $12-$14.

DC Independent Film Festival Make Valentine’s Day last all weekend, but without a ton of schmoopy stuff. While some of the movies on this year’s lineup for the DC Independent Film Festival have a touch of romance, the event is really a celebration of the works of independent filmmakers worldwide. You can see shorts (including the Oscar-nominated “Negative Space”), animation, documentaries and international films. In fact, you could use the festival as a litmus test for your relationship — agree on enough movie selections and you may have met your match. Various locations and times; Wed. through Feb. 19, free-$15 per screening ($60-$170 for festival passes); dciff-indie.org.

‘From Here to Eternity’ There is more to “From Here to Eternity” than Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr making out on the beach. For example, there is the little-known deleted scene where Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr attempt to get the sand out of their various crevices. The 1953 movie as a whole is a sweeping, very old-school romance — the kind that reminds you why the old school is often a pretty good school. Cuddle up for this Valentine’s Day screening with some popcorn and Sour Patch Kids, which are scientifically proven to be aphrodisiacs.

entertainment WHAT’S THE SITCH?

Daniela Vega plays Marina, a trans lover fighting to be herself, in “A Fantastic Woman.”

Getting to the heart of ‘A Fantastic Woman’ Daniela Vega says love — not gender identity — defines her character FILM Chilean actress and singer Daniela Vega would have handled things differently than Marina, the character she plays in “A Fantastic Woman.” “Marina is very elegant,” Vega says through an interpreter. “I only dress elegant. My soul is not elegant.” Marina’s elegance is what gets her through difficult circumstances in the Chilean movie, which nabbed director and cowriter Sebastian Lelio an Oscar nomination for best foreign language film. (The film opens locally Friday at the E Street Cinema and Angelika at Mosaic.) When Marina’s longtime older boyfriend Orlando (Francisco Reyes) suddenly dies, Marina finds herself completely shut out

by his ex-wife, his son and the rest of his family — who refuse to let her keep their dog or any mementos, or even attend the funeral. It’s not just because Marina played a role in the breakup of the family, but also because she is transgender. “Orlando and Marina’s love had nothing to do with [Marina being] transgender,” Vega says. “It’s the rest of the world who reminds Marina that she’s trans, using it like a weapon.” That eventually undoes Marina’s commitment to elegance, Vega says. “[At first, she] didn’t want to provoke anyone at the funeral; she didn’t want to take the role of being the wife,” Vega says. “Then Marina thinks, ‘Until now, I’ve been very dignified, but not anymore. I’m going to go to the funeral. I’m going to pay the cost of being who I am.’ ” Vega, who is also transgender, is of two minds about whether

her gender identity made her more qualified to play Marina than a cisgender actor would be. “I played male roles before this, and that doesn’t invalidate me as an actress or a woman,” she says. “But there’s a political element to it as well. It’s like back when white actors would darken their faces to play black characters — that’s a political issue.” Just as skin color isn’t the sole marker of black identity, with transgender characters, “we’re talking about something more than cosmetics, than clothes — it’s how you identify yourself.” Even though Marina’s — and, by extension, Vega’s — gender identity is at the core of the film, Vega doesn’t want people to think of “A Fantastic Woman” as a “trans movie.” “It’s not only about a woman who is a trans woman,” she says. “It’s more about love and death, and that’s universal.”

SONY PICTURES CLASSICS

A live-action ‘Kim Possible’ is in the works The Disney Channel is making a live-action movie based on its popular 2000s cartoon “Kim Possible,” according to Variety. The show, which was nominated for an Emmy in 2003, is about an everyday high schooler who moonlights as an evil-obstructing hero alongside her sidekick friend, Ron Stoppable, and pet naked mole rat, Rufus. Christy Carlson Romano, also of “Even Stevens” fame, originally voiced the titular character, while Will Friedle (“Boy Meets World”) voiced Ron. Variety reported that casting is currently underway on the liveaction version, which is being written and executive produced by the series’ creators, Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley. (EXPRESS)

“Jessica Jones” Season 2 to hit Netflix March 8

Tarantino under fire for past conduct ALLEGATIONS Quentin Tarantino has responded to Uma Thurman’s claim that he put her life in danger with a car stunt on “Kill Bill,” telling Deadline the incident is “the biggest regret of my life.” Thurman said in a New York Times story published Saturday that she believed the car to be faulty, but the director coerced her to perform the stunt. In video evidence Thurman provided, she is seen crashing into a tree and being lifted out of the vehicle. The actress also said the director both spit on her and choked her during scenes where it was called for in the script. Tarantino disputed some details to Deadline in a Monday story. “I didn’t force her into the car,” he said. “She got into it because she trusted me. And she believed me.” He also said he himself spit on Thurman so he could “art direct” the spit for the shot. In the choking incident, Tarantino said it was Thurman’s idea that he strangle her with a chain for the sake of authenticity. Meanwhile, as Tarantino was attempting to explain these claims, the director was also being excoriated on Tuesday for remarks he made in a 2003 Howard Stern interview that resurfaced online, seemingly defending filmmaker Roman Polanski, who plead guilty to having unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl. “She wanted to have it and dated the guy,” Tarantino says in the audio interview. “Look, she was down with this.” JOCELYN NOVECK (AP)

TODAY: Still on the breezy side, with morning winds around 10-20 mph, before diminishing in the afternoon. Otherwise, we’ve got plenty of sun as high pressure takes control. But we’re also plenty cold, with highs in the mid- to upper 30s. Conditions tonight are seasonably cold, with lows in the 20s

In a W magazine profile, Lindsay Lohan shared how Hollywood has changed since she was in her prime in the early 2000s. “We didn’t have Instagram,” she said. “It would have been a lot calmer for me. When you think about it, paparazzi are not as crazy as they used to be when I used to be in New York. Now I can just [take a picture] before I walk out the door and then there is no story.” (EXPRESS)

BIZARRE

In a new interview, Jones says … a lot of things Quincy Jones claimed in a candid Vulture interview that Michael Jackson “stole a lot of songs,” Chicago mobster Sam Giancana killed President Kennedy and the Beatles were “the worst musicians in the world.” He also said he and Ivanka Trump dated 12 years ago, and were set up by Tommy Hilfiger. Jones called Trump “a fine motherf---er.” (EXPRESS)

PARENTS

Golden Globe for Most Supportive Dad goes to … On Tuesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Kimmel showed “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” star Sam Rockwell a comment posted on The New York Times’ “Three Billboards” review that Rockwell’s father possibly wrote: “My son, Sam, won a Golden Globe for playing Jason Dixon. I think I would still love the movie if another actor had played Dixon … But not quite as much.” Rockwell confirmed it was, indeed, his dad. (EXPRESS)

FANS

Gemma Nuttall, a cancer survivor in the U.K. who was initially given six to 12 months to live, told The Mirror that she is now cancer-free thanks to treatments funded by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. The stars auctioned off three “Jack and Rose” date nights at DiCaprio’s fundraiser in July. They raised $1.35 million, $418,977 of which went toward Nuttall’s treatment. (EXPRESS)

In a new Harper’s Bazaar cover story, Selena Gomez opened up to Katherine Langford, a star of the Gomez-produced “13 Reasons Why,” about her mental health, social media and being a young person in Hollywood, among many topics. When asked who her biggest role models are, Gomez said, “Meryl Streep has always been one of my idols because of her elegance and ability to always be true to herself but play these incredibly complex, difficult characters. I love how she carries herself.” She also listed Amal Clooney and 14-year-old singer Grace VanderWaal. (EXPRESS)
