Potomac Stages Wraps it Up.

Potomac Stages, one of the only websites to exclusively cover theatre in the DC Metro area has announced that as of January 1st, it will cease publication of it's website. I am a little bit late to the party on this, but just found out this morning. Such sad news. First Washington Theatre Review ceased their publication of their fabulous quarterly magazine, and then went to strictly online format, then ceased altogether. Now no more Potomac Stages. The only remaining website strictly devoted to theatre in our area is DC Theatre Scene, which is a link on the right.

I feel that the gang over at Potomac Stages has always been fair and even handed, along with being VERY supportive of this areas smaller theatres as well as all of the giants. They have always treated me well, and said wonderful things about me, for which I am always grateful.

Their website will be sorely missed, and it makes me sad that one more voice out there advocating local theatre has gone quiet. But thanks to them all for many (8) years of wonderful coverage of this amazing city's theatre scene.

There is a "wrap-up" article posted on their website which summarizes their favorite productions over the years. I am extremely touched to have been mentioned in this wrap up regarding tick,tick...BOOM! at Metro Stage. Read the full article HERE.

Hats off, Potomac Stages. Many thanks and best wishes for the future.

Don't forget about We've been around since August 2005. We cover theatre of all sizes from Warrenton, VA to Annapolis, MD. We also feature a comprehensive listing of auditions, a cross-referenced production schedule, including a history of local theater productions going back as far as we can (1930s or so).

What was great about Potomac Stages is that it ALWAYS listed the entire cast and design team including stage managers. It was one of two websites that I always told students to read daily for that very reason. Its important to know who is doing what and where.
