Welcome to DCMetroTheaterArts! by Joel Markowitz

Welcome to DCMetroTheaterArts. The inspiration for the site evolved from an informal meeting between me, Founder Bruce Markowitz, and our Assistant Editor Alex Murphy. We talked about the need to cover more performances in the DC Metro area, in Baltimore, the Annapolis area, Virginia and Maryland, and we got excited about creating a one-stop-shopping site for all of the arts.

We have wonderful writers who love the arts. DCMetroTheaterArts contains reviews, interviews, postings, and articles about professional, community, university, school, and children’s theatre, as well as concerts in the DC Metro area, and dining tips for pre-and-post theatre. And there are more surprises to come.

We are reaching out to every theatre, arts group, school, university, musical venue, and charities in the area to come and join us in working together to write articles, do interviews and videos to promote your upcoming season and events.

Joining us will be Todd Clark from The DC Place who is a sponsor of DCMetroTheaterArts.com, Teresa Ertel, Elliot Lanes, Jonny Perl, Jordan Wright, Cyle Durkee and myself, whose columns will be featured on DMTA. Visit the site and click on ‘columns,’ to read a short introduction about what you can expect to find as we launch, as we strive to become the most comprehensive premiere site in the area for theatre and the performing arts.

We are reaching out to everyone involved in the arts in our area to work together. If you’d like, we can share your work with our readers and link to your sites, and please consider doing some joint articles and projects.

We will always be on the look out for top writers to help us cover the arts – and most importantly – we want to know what you – our readers – would like us to cover. You can reach us here: [email protected]

We honor all your hard work in covering this rich arts community.

We invite you to become regular readers of our site and to join us in covering the amazing and burgeoning arts scene in DC, MD, and VA.
