Theater J 2018-2019 Season: Around Town
Theater J, the nation’s pre-eminent professional Jewish theater, announces its 2018-2019 season, which will be presented “around town” in top cultural venues throughout the city, as the historic Edlavitch DCJCC building undergoes major renovation. Learn more and support the renovation.
Subscribers will experience outstanding Theater J productions in four exciting off-site performance spaces. See below for location details!
The season begins at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts with the acclaimed The Pianist of Willesden Lane, featuring Mona Golabek performing the story of her mother’s life and career as a concert pianist. Next up, at Arena Stage in the Kogod Cradle is the taut and topical Actually by Anna Ziegler, whose play Photograph 51 was produced by Theater J in 2011. Third is the Pulitzer Prize-winning romance Talley’s Folly by Lanford Wilson at GALA Hispanic Theatre. And finally, the first full production of our Yiddish Theater Lab: The Jewish Queen Lear plays at Georgetown University.
In addition to the four plays we are producing, we are delighted to offer you some exciting “add-ons:” three productions at other distinguished DC theaters. See Indecent at Arena Stage, Round House Theatre’s Oslo at the Lansburgh Theatre, and Describe the Night at Woolly Mammoth as part of your Theater J package and get preferential seating at a special price–plus free exchanges–before single tickets to these performances go on sale to the general public.
