Arena Stage

This flagship American theater, built 1960, is a notable element of the Southwest urban renewal program.

Arena Stage is the home of a major Washington cultural institution and nationally prominent pioneer in the American Regional Theater movement. The innovative design of the theater, built in 1960, expresses evolving theater production concepts. Designed by Harry Weese, the complex houses three theaters of varying scope, including nation's first permanent professional theater-in-the-round.
