2021-2022 Season Announcement

The Washington Center is excited to announce a new season with audiences at full capacity for the first time since March 2020. This diverse season showcases exceptional artistry along with stories of humanity through the lens of performing arts. The season includes several performances which were impacted by the pandemic and have been rescheduled, as well as brand new performances.

The opportunities kick off with world-renowned series National Geographic Live: Mireya Mayor, holiday shows including acoustic performers from the multi-platinum selling album Windham Hill’s Winter Solstice, an evening with GRAMMY award-winning singer Judy Collins, American humorist David Sedaris, and our beloved series Comedy Underground, Black Box Jazz, and historic silent film series accompanied by the Andy Crow Wurlitzer Organ.

Due to the impacts from the coronavirus, we are not currently selling season package subscriptions. We fully intend on returning to the traditional subscription model in 2022/2023 with subscription discounts, same-seat privileges, and priority seating. We know that these are important benefits to all of our subscribers. However, FRIENDS of the Center and subscribers from the 19-20 season will have early access to purchase all tickets as they go on sale.
