“Covering the Holiday Season (Now – Dec. 31st) in DC is a daunting task! In my last post, I focused on regular discounts given by the professional theaters in the DC area. From now on, I’ll focus on specific shows, discounted performances and their associated FREE events: post-show/pre-show talks, happy hours, etc. Shout-out here to Mosaic Theater Company of DC! They are offering FREE post-show discussions open to anyone, even if you didn’t attend the show. I’d also like to highlight Pointless Theatre Company, offering discounts to the unemployed!
As many of you have noted, my list is a full list but not comprehensive. For this list I’ve only included theaters with productions in late November and December. If I’ve missed your favorite theatre or production – please chime in in the Comments Section of this post.
