DCMetroTheaterArts Turns 3 Today!

DCMetroTheaterArts is 3 years old today.


I want to thank the 90+ writers who have contributed their talents to the site and to my brother Bruce for founding the site and to our Assistant Editor/Webmaster extraordinaire Brett Widmann who has redesigned the site, and constantly improves it.

And thanks to all the theatres and venues and artists and performers who have supported us in our endeavors. And to every theatre of every size and to the theatre programs who are training and inspiring the young actors, directors, playwrights, musicians, composers, and designers of tomorrow-you are the real heroes. We will never say ‘no’ to you if you need help getting the word out about your work.


There are more exciting things to come on DCMTA, so stay tuned!

And a big thanks to all our readers. And to those who haven’t found us yet – we invite you to visit us. And I am so very proud of what we have accomplished in 3 short years.

It’s been an amazing ride …so far!
