The 2020 season in Washington theatre promises plenty of excitement, surprises, and outstanding performances. Learn from the experts why D.C. is considered one of the best theater towns in the country, and what’s in store on local stages large and small.

Look ahead with some of the top local arts writers as Tim Treanor (DC Theatre Scene), Chris Klimek (Washington City Paper), Rosa Cartagena (Washingtonian), Nicole Hertvik (DC Metro Theatre Arts), and Susan Galbraith (Alliance for New Music Theatre) share their picks on the hottest tickets in town, what’s worth the price, and what artists to keep on eye on in the new season.  

Are you ready to take in Synetic Theatre's latest movement-based interpretations of classic stories or are you in the mood for a sure-to-be-provocative world premiere at Woolly Mammoth Theatre? Find your favorite among Arena Stage’s offerings for its 60th season or discover the latest up-and-coming new troupe. It wouldn’t be a D.C. season without Signature’s distinctive take on musicals, with A Chorus Line and Hair among the shows on tap in Shirlington.

And here’s the best part: With more than 80 producing theaters in the region there's always much to choose from, no matter your taste.
