We saw the Pulitzer Prize winning play Hot Wing King. Cast was excellent. Set design was impressive. One of the only options for theatre in July as most of the other seasons ran fall to spring. Great place for intimate theatre.

The Studio Theatre is hands down one of my favorite theatre's in the country. They bring in such interesting work, and, of course, actively support new and emerging artists. The productions are always fantastic and generally provocative. It's race conscious work, and often, actively anti-isms as it's grounded in the writing and voices of those who experience the journeys that are portrayed. I deeply hope this theatre stays afloat and have donated to its recovery fund.

Besides Broadway, I find that nothing ever surpasses both the production level and quality of material elsewhere.

Saw our third play at the Studio Theater. Always a unique experience with quality acting and serious subject matter. We love the intimate size of the theaters. Can’t wait for our next trip to DC to see another show. A+

My husband and I are repeat season ticket holders. Need I say more? We love the diversity of plays, the strength of characters, and the array of shows presented in the various venues within this building.

We come to DC for a month each winter, to see shows, do museums and generally get our "big city fix." We had not been to the Studio Theatre before and booked tickets to Admissions--their most recent show. We enjoyed the theatre space--very intimate and pleasant. The performers were quite good and after seeing relatively mediocre shows at Arena and Woolly Mammoth, we were extremely pleased at the quality of the production.

This has quickly become one of our favorite spaces for theatre in the DC area.

This 1-act ("Admissions" extended through March 3rd) slices into the liberal angst of having political correctness and getting into Yale too. Excellent ensemble acting to accompany the humerous, but challenging, subject matter.

We completely enjoyed the afternoon performance of Kings. The cast gave a stellar performance on a topic that fit in perfectly with our visit to Washington DC. We thought this unique, intimate venue was an excellent choice for this play.

We went to Studio to see "The Fall," a 90-minute play with a South African cast that takes the audience into behind-the-scenes discussions of Black African Capetown University students protesting first a statue of Cecil Rhodes and then an increase in tuition fees. The sit-in-style debates are at once impassioned and familiar for an American audience. Not great drama, but nonetheless powerful, and occasional video clips in the background make it clear that the events described in the play are actual. The theater itself is a gem. All good seats, great acoustics...what more could you ask? My only "complaint" is that parking in the vicinity is either difficult-to-impossible on the street, or remote and expensive in paid lots.

I’ve seen a couple of plays here and both were exceptional. Every seat offers a good view. The audience is small and provides an intimate feel.

With our enjoyment of the stage, and having already been to a couple of productions in the City, we were looking on line for other venues and came across the Studio Theatre close to our hotel. A new play, that sounded interesting and straightforward ticket purchase on line. The welcome was warm and efficient, the seating comfortable with excellent sightlines. The play was excellent, well acted and thought provoking. Altogether a great evening of theatre.
