A Note From Our Artistic Director, Molly Smith

Dear Theater Lover,
Even with the continuing twists and turns of the pandemic, it has been invigorating to return to live theater this past year. And we have YOU to thank for making it all possible.

I’m incredibly excited to unveil our 2022/23 Season to you—my 25th as Artistic Director of Arena Stage! Reflective of our shared experience, it’s one of surviving and thriving; an affirmation of community bonds and identities.

The work you will see on our stages are a mix of classic and modern, comedy and drama, musicals and music-filled. They are all the absolute best in their classes, and encapsulate why Arena was founded: to use the galvanizing power of theater to explore who we are as Americans.

Read on to learn more about our upcoming season, as well as the many benefits of being an Arena Stage subscriber. I look forward to seeing you in the theater!
