Last fall, Arena Stage temporarily relocated to Crystal City while its 6th Street, SW, WDC location undergoes renovation. Future plans also include stage performances at the Lincoln Theater on U Street in NW WDC.
Arena Stage renovated the Crystal City theater specifically to accommodate patrons and productions for the next two and a half seasons while Arena’s new home is being built. The theater itself is roughly the same size as the Kreeger, though the lobby is larger than the former space.
Productions began in Crystal City with Ella starting on December 28, 2007 with no anticipation of changing any existing performance dates for the rest of the 2007/2008 season except for The Mystery of Irma Vep which will now run from June 6, 2008 through July 13, 2008. Production dates for Kiki & Herb: Alive on Broadway may also change, but you will be kept informed. In the interim, please see the "Plan Your Visit" section of the website for Frequently Asked Questions, directions and other relevant information.
Situated in the heart of Crystal City, Arena Stage is NOW temporarily located at 1800 S. Bell Street in Crystal City / Arlington VA.
