D.C. – The New American Theater Center?

Christopher Rawson, theatre critic since 1983 for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, recaps his experience at the recent American Theatre Critics Association gathering in Washington D.C. He give substance to the claim that D.C. is now third in the nation for professional theatre (over San Francisco and Minneapolis) and is quickly on the heals of overtaking Chicago. He give a very good summary of the major players in the Capital district. Check it out here. A personal favorite of mine is the Studio Theatre, run by Joy Zinoman, which produces a number of international works. A stand-out was a production of Vassily Sigarev’s Black Milk back in 2005.
