Studio Theatre has announced not only its upcoming season, but a completely revamped and retooled website, bringing with it a new graphic interpretation for the 36 year old company, new services for patrons and more changes on the horizon.
Studio patrons can begin celebrating immediately with a look at Studio’s new site design. Replacing the black, grey and white color scheme of the past are vibrant colors, easy navigation and blazing fast delivery.
Studio is beginning a new parking program to alleviate the frustration of attempting to find parking in the crowded Logan Circle neighborhood. Patrons may now park in the garage at Washington Plaza Hotel, 10 Thomas Circle NW. and pay at the theatre. Details are here.
In the unveiling of the upcoming season and all the changes at Studio on Sunday, March 30th, David Muse, now in his fifth season as Artistic Director, made the following major announcement: “I feel very lucky to announce that we will be partnering with architect David M. Schwarz as we develop a long-term plan for our theatre complex at 14th and P streets. David is an internationally renowned architect whose work shows a remarkable sensitivity to balancing scale with surroundings and innovation with tradition. We look forward to partnering with him as we strategize about how to integrate Studio’s historic complex into our revitalized neighborhood.”
And now for the ten play Studio Theatre 2014-2015 season:
Update: Apr 9 – “Studio regrets to announce that we will not be producing Taylor Mac’s play Hir in our 2014-15 2ndStage Season, because of a miscommunication regarding who would direct the project. “Studio 2ndStage has a long tradition of fostering the work of new directors and actors, and we were committed to finding a play for Holly Twyford to direct,” says Studio Artistic Director David Muse. “Hir seemed like a perfect match between Taylor’s work and Holly’s sensibilities as a director. We are sorry about the miscommunication but respect Taylor’s decision to withdraw the project. We wish Taylor the best and look forward to collaborating in the future.” It’s replacement will be announced shortly.
