A Look at DC's Arena Stage

When this blog posts, I'll be on my way to a new-to-me regional theatre, Washington D.C.'s Arena Stage, where I'll be seeing the National Tour of The Normal Heart.

If that weren't exciting enough, get a load of this theatre!  It has recently returned to its own space after a few seasons during which the place got a total renovation.  And, apparently, we are not talking a face lift, but rather major construction.  I can't wait to see it in person!

The Normal Heart plays the Keeger.  I can't wait to see this place and re-visit this show!
