  1. I am looking for Tracy Lynn Strong
    She lived in Soap Lake Washington back in 1976
    She gave birth to me April 12, 1976 @ Columbia Basin Hospital in Ephrata Washington
    She was 16
    She gave me up for adoption
    But it was a closed one so its nearly impossible
    Finding her
    I typed in her name n this came up
    If you know her will you tell her to email me
    I’m struggling a lot in my life but one of the things I need more than anything is to see her face and know she is my birth mom so I can finally put it to rest
    I do not want to intrude

  3. Good morning, and top of the day to you. I am an independent playwright resident in Maryland. I have an upcoming play-a musical-and I was wondering if you can write an article or a small post about the production. I am willing to answer any necessary questions.

  4. Is there anywhere I can find a future calendar for DC theater? I am particularly interested to find out if “The Village Bike” will be coming to DC.

    Hi, I am looking into a Theatre internship for summer 2015 and I was wondering if that is something your Theatre does. If not, do you know of any Theatres in Washington DC that do? Please let me know if you have any helpful information. Thanks.

  6. Where can I purchase the 1/2 price tickets to the Ballet on May 3.

    Thank you

  7. We’re coming to DC. I can’t get an address to email you our information. Can you give it to me please? We’d like to find out what’s happening between May 17th and 21st.

  8. Hello, my name is Peter. I am a professional theatrical entertainer / Comedian. I travel the country and perform on cruise ships. My comedy was also seen on Oprah 3 years ago. I’m looking to produce a comedy show in the DC area as part of a fundraiser for a local charity called “Fallen Heroes.”

    The theater should hold around 400-600 people.

    Can you accommodate? If so, would I speak to? Thanks so much.

    I assume you didn’t review Savion Glover at Montgomery
    College on Thursday evening. It was fantastic!

  10. I very much appreciate your collection of theater reviews. You are my one stop shop for selecting a show. Is there any way to sign up to have all new posted reviews emailed to me automatically when posted?

    Hello. The IMF has a quantity of surplus binders that we like to donate. Perhaps they may can repurposed to hold screenplays, production design bible(s)? Please let us know if your oganization may be interested?

  12. Mike Vanden Heuvel says:

    I am interested in teaching Kipp Cheng’s adaptation of “Einstein’s Dreams,” which you produced some time ago. I haven’t been able to reach the author and wonder if you might have contact information, or an acting version of the text handy (this would be for educational use only with no intention to produce the play).

  13. Sarabecca Rosier says:

    Can I please have the phone # of a LIVE knowledgeable person at Capitol Fringe?

    Thanx. Sarabecca

  14. Thanks for the compliment, Susan. Steve will be in touch.

  15. I stumbled on a couple of Steven McKnight’s old articles summarizing the best new plays in the D.C. area in prior seasons (2010-11, 2011-12) and was quite interested and rather delighted in his pithy summaries and good predictions regarding many plays that have since become quite well known and had New York runs or significant life in regional theatre. I’d love to be in direct contact with him regarding a story for my blog http://www.TheatrePlaybyPlay — which focuses on new works in theatre — his dramaturgical sense (or prescience) might be a story itself. Steven, if you see this, please contact me — I’m a big fan.

    Nice service. Thanks!
    My wife & I will be in the DC area one night only,     July 28, which happens to be our 25th Anniversary. We’re looking for a good musical to see, or a good play (prefer musical). Music Man and Grease are playing, but we have seen both of them several times.
    More wife is a professional actor, stage & screen, and a director of plays. She is somewhat interested in Shakespeare. We are from Minneapolis.
    We might also like a good concert. We have a rental car so transportation is not a problem.
    Any suggestions?
