We think of DC Theatre Scene as a virtual theatre lobby where people from both sides of the stage come together to learn from one another, and share history and opinions about theatre in the Washington DC area.
We began in 2005, when Ronnie Ruff, along with three writers, created DC Theatre Reviews. The site was committed to fostering a lively discussion of the busy Washington, DC professional theatre community, especially the small stages, whose productions, until then, had been given little attention.
In October, 2007, we incorporated as DC Theatre Scene, the new Web site and name recognizing that we had expanded our coverage beyond reviews into features, news, and opinion columns.
Today, DC Theatre Scene goes where you, our audience goes – whether it is to a theatre in the DC area, Baltimore or New York, to the movies or to TV screen. We help theatregoers make tickets buying decisions through our partnership with TheatreinDC. At the end of each season, we nominate and let you decide which productions and performances emerged as the best of the season, through our DCTS Audience Choice Awards. And we have created the Gary Lee Maker Audience Award to honor the absolutely essential ingredient of any performance – the audience.
