Arena Stage The Mead Center for American Theater MY ACCOUNT

2018/18 Season

What makes your heart race? What inspires you? For those of us living and working in the theater it can be about telling new stories in wholly unexpected ways. Or discovering a surprising wrinkle in a classic play that we didn’t realize was there. It’s about illuminating the text or a song to make audiences catch their collective breath. It’s seeing a new theater-goer make a connection between the work on the stage and a moment in their own life. It’s a sensation, a rush, a thrill. It’s our job to create it. At any given performance, the moments can be magical.

Come join us for all of the magical moments of the 2018/19 Season.
