Wikipedia Description: Arena Stage
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Arena Stage is a theatre production house in Southwest Washington, D.C. The theatre company's home is on the DC Waterfront and houses three stages:
* The Fichandler Stage, a theatre in the round
* The Kreeger Theater
* The Old Vat Room (no longer in use)
The nearest metro station is Waterfront-SEU on the Green Line.
The theatre company was founded in 1950. One of its cofounders, Zelda Fichandler, remained its artistic director until 1990. Its first home was the Hippodrome Theatre, a former movie house. In 1956, the company moved into the gymnasium of the old Heurich Brewery in Foggy Bottom, which was demolished to make way for the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge and the Kennedy Center. In 1960, they moved into their current location.
Arena Stage was not only one of the first not-for-profit theaters in the United States but has served as a pioneer of the regional theater movement. Arena was the first regional theater to transfer a production to Broadway when The Great White Hope, which opened at Arena Stage in 1967 went on to Broadway with its original cast, including James Earl Jones and Jane Alexander. In 1973, it was also the first invited by the U.S. State Department to tour behind the Iron Curtain. In 1976, Arena Stage became the first theater outside of New York to receive a special Tony Award for theatrical excellence.
The theatre is currently planning a major renovation of its facilities. Current plans including leaving the Fichandler Stage and Kreeger Theater both untouched, but tearing down the rest of the building. Once that is done, the new facility will have a large central lobby, a new smaller theater for debuting experimental pieces, and apartments on site for visiting actors and directors.

I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
2021 photos: This year, which started with former child president's attempted coup and the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic, gradually got better.
Trips this year:
(May, October) After getting fully vaccinated, I made two trips down to Asheville, NC to visit my dad and his wife Dixie, and
(mid-July) I made a quick trip up to Stockbridge, MA to see the Norman Rockwell Museum again as well as Daniel Chester French's place @ Chesterwood.
Equipment this year: I continued to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Number of photos taken this year: about 283,000, up slightly from 2020 levels but still really low.
