Washington, DC has become the location of one of the fastest growing and most exciting theater districts in the country: attracting many internationally acclaimed actors, directors and writers and serving as a testing ground for many new productions before there New York or London debuts. Additionally, since its inception Washington DC has been the locus of America’s political theater; often generating outrageous characters or behavior that serves as fodder for theatrical productions.
