Today we want to tell you about the Kennedy Center for The Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.–a GREAT U.S. theatre!
We have been thinking about the Kennedy Center since we saw President and Mrs. Obama attending a performance there recently.
We were very involved in opening the Kennedy Center because The Theatre Guild was designated as the subscription organization for the Kennedy Center theatre-goers to subscribe to each winter series of plays.
We began in 1971 and had a subscription audience of 15,000 members. We remained at the Center for 15 years, and during that time we also presented some of our own plays there.
The Eisenhower Theatre is great for plays and musicals, with a seating capacity of 1,161! It is a lovely theatre and one of the very best places to bring a play.
It’s a wonderful historic theatre that has come into existence in our lifetime. According to The Kennedy Center’s Archives:
