June 12 - September 16, 2018

A true cultural phenomenon, Lin-Manuel Miranda's Pulitzer Prize-winning Hamilton is changing the face of the modern musical. An exhilarating historical epic, that is equal parts Sondheim and Notorious B.I.G., this record-breaking Broadway musical traces the life and times of Alexander Hamilton, one of America's most important (and colorful) historical figures.

Kennedy Center Theater Lab

Open Run

An American theatre institution, Shear Madness is the longest running non-musical show in American history. It's been running in Boston at the Charles Playhouse for over 30 years, and has enjoyed hugely successful productions the world over. Now it continues in Washington DC for its 26-year open run at the Kennedy Center, in time for the holiday season! Part comedy farce and part murder mystery, no two shows are exactly the same!

Back in the nation's capital for its annual engagement, NYCB present a mixed repertory double-program featuring three works by Balanchine, as well as from Justin Peck, Christopher Wheeldon, and Alexei Ratmansky, which have yet to be seen outside the New York arts sphere. Known as the father of the NYCB George Balanchine remains their biggest influence; however their welcoming of new and exciting young choreographers ensures that their repertory remains fresh and vivid, with new pieces commissioned every year.

Where to start with Pat Metheny? Jazz guitar pioneer and tireless musical innovator, the Missouri-born Metheny's career stretches back over forty years, during which time his stunning fusion of jazz, pop and world music has won him twenty Grammy Awards, and recently saw him become the youngest member of Downbeat's Hall of Fame (the jazz equivalent of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame).

June 13 - July 16, 2017

Rodgers and Hammerstein's iconic musical about the Maria and the Von Trapp family is set for a new North American tour. This new production is being helmed by Jack O'Brien, who has promised to wipe away the "varnish" and dig down into the real drama that lies at the heart of the story. Featuring one of the great scores of all time, The Sound of Music is set to be the unmissable family show of the year.

Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

venue exterior

Built in 1971 to realize the late President Kennedy's ambitions to bring culture to the American public, the Center has seen over 300 productions across ballet, theater and concerts created and stage at the complex. December 2014 saw the start of an ambitious expansion project that would reopen access from the Center to the Potomac River, as well as easier access to lower Georgetown and provide more space for visitors and performers to engage with.
