What makes you original and unique?
Thetheatre was founded in 1933. It started as a little play-reading group and blossomed from there into this miracle known as "Live Art." Early productions were held upstairs at Gadsby's Tavern and recreated life in the eighteenth century, right down to the visit of President and Mrs. Washington journeying from their Mount Vernon home. Over the years, audience members included a veritable "Who's Who" of Washington. President Harry S. Truman attended on more than one occasion, and notes say that Lynda Bird Johnson even participated as a serving wench!
