Raising The Curtain on the Washington Theatre Scene

Performing Arts and Theatre in Washington, DC is a hidden gem often overshadowed locally by Politics!  On this tour, we'll discover the city's vibrant and internationally renowned theatre community featuring the artistic contributions of women on stage and behind the scenes.  Learn why Helen Hayes is the undisputed First Lady of the Nation’s Theatre. 

We will begin our walking tour at the historic National Theatre revealing the decades of women’s contributions to the theatre community.   We will celebrate the visionary Artistic Direction of the prophetic women of Arena Stage, and continue through the downtown theatre district examining how women continue to develop talent, keeping our theatre provocative and edgy.
