Studio Theatre, “one of America’s most celebrated theatres” (Washingtonian Magazine), is Washington, DC’s premier venue for contemporary theatre. Under the leadership of Artistic Director David Muse and Managing Director Meridith Burkus, 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. 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 64 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 three or four projects, encompassing plays that benefit from particularly intimate or immersive stagings, presented work, and some of Studio’s world premiere projects. Studio Theatre’s success producing thoughtful and provocative contemporary work has attracted theatregoers to DC’s Logan Circle neighborhood in ever-increasing numbers over the past 37 years and helped lead the revitalization of the 14th Street corridor into what is today one of Washington’s most vibrant neighborhoods.

 Studio is also home to the Studio Theatre Acting Conservatory, now celebrating its 40th year, which offers rigorous theatre training for both adults and young people. Since 1975, the Studio Theatre Acting Conservatory has trained more than 12,000 students, many of whom have gone on to acclaimed careers across the country.  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.
