Beginning this week, the first block of South Potomac Street will be closed on Fridays from 5 to 9 p.m. through Sept. 18, city officials said.

As part of the event, there will be an enclosed area that encompasses the theater's front courtyard and extends to the sidewalk, Community Affairs Director Karen Giffin said.

The council also approved a permit to allow alcohol consumption in the enclosed area, Giffin said.
