More to Celebrate at the Source Festival

By May, the Source theater at 1835 14th Street is scheduled to complete a $1 million renovation. Arts organizations that will call the new Source home are Constellation, Catalyst Theater company, Washington Improv Theater, In Series, and the DC arts and Humanities Education Collaborative. These organizations will offer diversity of performances including comedy, opera, chamber music, cabaret, and experimental theater. Those of you who have come to enjoy the month-long Washington Theatre Festival will be happy to know that it will be reincarnated as the Source Festival next year.

It is fantastic how this stretch of 14th Street is changing. In the past four years that I have lived here, many businesses have opened, and the whole atmosphere of the block has brightened. I imagine that the theater renovations will improve the looks of the area and draw more people to the neighborhood for performing arts.
