H Street Playhouse, which Mayor Vince Gray announced last week would be moving to Anacostia, revealed its exact location at a press conference today: 2020 Shannon Place SE.
The warehouse—which is located directly behind The Hive, a communal work space—was used during the Lumen8Anacostia temporium event earlier this year. H Street Playhouse presented three short readings there in April as part of the festival.
Managing Director Julia Robey Christian estimates that the 5,000-square foot space will need about $250,000 of work. The Playhouse has signed a five-year lease with the option to renew with Curtis Properties and Four Points Development, which own the building. After news of its need to move broke, the Playhouse was contacted by ARCH Development Corporation, which undertook a concentrated effort to get the theater to relocate to Anacostia.
