Arena Stage

Arena Stage Review

The first regional theater company to win a Tony Award performs innovative American theater, reviving such classic plays as Oklahoma and also showcasing the country's best new writers. The state-of-the art Mead Center for American Theatre houses three stages and is the second-largest performing arts complex in Washington, after the Kennedy Center. Located near the waterfront neighborhood in Southwest D.C., the Mead Center features the Fichandler Stage, a theater-in-the-round seating 680; the Kreeger Theater, a modified thrust seating 514; and the Kogod Cradle, a 200-seat black box theater for new or experimental productions. Inside the Mead, the Catwalk Café serves meals inspired by the shows playing that evening.
