We believe in the power of live theatrical storytelling. We exist to support the community of playmakers which presents those stories and to help build engaged and informed audiences in this, one of the busiest hubs for theatre in America.
In 2005, Ronnie Ruff created DC Theatre Reviews. The site was focused on those small stage theatre companies in DC whose productions received little media attention. In October, 2007, we incorporated as DC Theatre Scene, Inc., our new name recognizing that we had moved beyond reviews into features, news, and opinion columns.
Today, DC Theatre Scene goes where you go – whether to a theatre in the DC or Baltimore areas or to New York city, to a festival, to the movies or to your digital screen.
DC Theatre Scene is unique in that, in addition to our original content, we offer you
Find Your Show listings to broaden your choices for a theatre night out.
Our concierge service – Those unfamiliar with our area theatres find this particularly useful.
The Gary Lee Maker Audience Award, the only one of its kind in the country, which honors the absolutely essential ingredient of any performance – the audience.
Thanks to the support we’ve received, we are seeking to broaden our mission:
Interview more playwrights on their work for underserved communities
Instruct youth in how to understand a performance
Engage with our audience not just onsite, but also in the community.
