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.
