ABOUT STUDIO THEATRE  

Studio Theatre is “one of America’s most celebrated theatres” (Washingtonian Magazine). Under the leadership of Artistic Director David Muse and Managing Director Rebecca Ende Lichtenberg, 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 which seat fewer than 225 patrons. With a budget of over $6 million and 35 full time staff members, no theatre of comparable budget size operates such exclusively intimate theatres. The quality of this work has been recognized by sustained community support and 72 Helen Hayes Awards for excellence in professional theatre. The five-play Main Series is the core of Studio’s programming, offering a repertoire of provocative new and contemporary writing from around the world. Complementing the Main Series is Studio X, a purposefully eclectic constellation of projects that encompasses plays that will benefit from particularly intimate or immersive staging, presented work, and some of Studio’s world premiere projects. Studio Theatre’s success producing thoughtful and provocative contemporary work has attracted theatergoers to DC’s Logan Circle neighborhood in ever increasing numbers over the past 40 years and helped lead the revitalization of the 14th Street corridor into what is today one of Washington’s most vibrant neighborhoods. The theatre also trains early career arts leaders through its Apprentice Program. An opportunity for both hands-on training and professional development, this 50 week program introduces 13 motivated and qualified young professionals to the rigors and rewards of working at a fast-paced theatre in Washington, DC’s rich and extensive theatre community, and includes a stipend and housing to ensure that the most qualified candidates will be able to accept these positions, regardless of background.
