Studio Theatre

Venue Address

1501 14th St NW
Washington, DC 20005
United States

Studio Theatre is Washington’s premier venue for contemporary theatre, “where local audiences will find today’s edgiest playwrights” (Variety). Studio produces the work of today’s greatest writers, augmented by occasional productions of modern classics. Studio's work is marked by its emphasis on excellence in acting and design, and the signature intimacy of its four theatres, all of which seat fewer than 225 patrons. The quality of this work has been recognized over its 41-year history by sustained community support and 72 Helen Hayes Awards for excellence in professional theatre.
