Welcome to the National Theatre

For almost 200 years, Washington’s historic National Theatre has occupied a prominent position on Pennsylvania Avenue – “America’s Main Street.” Located a stone’s throw from the White House and bordering the Pennsylvania Avenue National Historic Site, the National Theatre is the historic cultural center for the performing arts in our nation’s capital and the oldest enterprise on Pennsylvania Avenue continuously operating in its original designated capacity.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, the National Theatre will be implementing the following changes to its spring 2020 schedule: STING STARRING IN THE LAST SHIP will not play as planned. Instead, we are working to reschedule THE LAST SHIP for a yet-to-be-determined future date. CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY and BABY SHARK LIVE! have been cancelled and will not be rescheduled. All patrons holding tickets for these shows will be contacted with further instructions and information. Please contact the National Theatre at info@thenationaldc.com with questions or concerns. We appreciate your patience while Box Office and administrative hours are limited. [As of 3/17/20]
