"Washington D.C. is known for a wide range of events varying in degree of complexity and elegance. With so much competition, there is still no doubt that Arena Stage is the best. It is rare to find the full package of beautiful venue and smart and dedicated staff, but Arena Stage has it all. We have thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Arena Stage and would recommend the venue and current staff to anyone."
