Studio's work is marked by its emphasis on excellence in acting and design, and the signature intimacy of its four theatres, all of which seat fewer than 225 patrons.

  • The play I went to see here was great, I enjoyed it a lot. The actual theatre was very small, but personable. My only complaint was the bar was very mediocre and overpriced. The actual theatre is great though. Do recommend.
  • We're lucky in DC to have so many good theaters. Studio was renovated a few years ago and has several stages available at once for plays. Most of them have seats that wrap maybe two-thirds around the stages. The stages are pretty small, but large enough to be effective. A lot of the plays here have small casts, maybe just three people, and they're almost all modern plays by new, respected playwrights, and the plays aren't so ... experimental as you might see elsewhere. The actors are quite talented and the plays are almost always very good. There is an occasional rare clunker, but season tickets are definitely worthwhile!
