With Hurricane Irene concentrated on DC area coastal regions, theatre companies have reported that they will continue with scheduled performances this weekend. The only events we have found which have been officially postponed are: Repertory Opera Theater’s performance Saturday night ‘Grand Night of Opera’, and Washington Improv Theatre’s picnic, WITnic on Sunday. And Olney Theatre, while continuing with their production of Grease, is offering free ticket exchanges; call the box office at 301.924.3400.
Metro will maintain regular weekend schedules, although you might want to set out early, as service delays are likely, they caution, especially on Saturday night.
Most companies will email patrons if there is a last minute cancellation. Otherwise, you might double check the company’s Web site before heading out. In the case of Adventure Theatre and The Puppet Co, both located in Glen Echo Park, you can check the park’s hotline: 301.320.2330 OR 301.634.2222 ext. 9.
If you receive word of cancellations, we hope you will help your fellow theatregoers by posting them in the comments below.
