It’s finally here: the reception/open house for the much-anticipated release of The Unified Scene Theater.

What’s The Unified Scene Theater? It’s an actual brick-and-mortar comedy theater in the heart of Bloomingdale, one that privileges and catalyzes the highly energized, highly galvanized improvisational comedy scene here in Washington, DC. It’s a permanent home (finally) for those wayward types raised on the collaborative art of improvisational comedy, an art that’s completely transformed comedy as an art form, not just here in America but globally.

What will it do? The Unified Scene will offer improv comedy performances and shows on most nights of the week, and classes and workshops in improv (both beginning and advanced) on others.

But that’s not all: it will also a multi-use performance, rehearsal, event, and meeting space that will also provide training and classes beneficial to performers, writers, and creative thinkers of all kinds. We’re proudly an incubator to DC’s growing art and performance scene, and proudly a “comedy locavore” here in Bloomingdale.

And we’re opening our doors to our neighbors, our friends, our family, anyone who wants to stop by. That’s right: if you’re reading this, you’ve got an all-access pass. Free. Don’t cost nothin’! So stop by. Peek in. Give us a listen. We think you’ll like what you hear.

    That’s really cool.

  • neighbor

    This place sounds cool – an interesting addition to the hood and DC scene in general. Please take off those window grates though – makes it look like a prison/bunker – not at all inviting.

    • Neighbor

      They are coming down from what I recall.

  • nate

    This is a really cool addition to the neighborhood.

  • nonnie

    Is the name a reference to the Hold Steady song?

    • Bri

      Considering one of the owners is a big Hold Steady fan, I would guess yes :)

    Very excited to check this place out. And they have great taste in music too
