In 2005, Ronnie Ruff created DC Theatre Reviews. The website 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
