Rainbow Theatre Project

 

The Rainbow Theatre Project made their first appearance last year at Source, though neither of its founders are new to the DC theater scene. They present pieces about/by/for the LGBT community. An article on DC Theatre Scene emphasizes the 2 year planning process (infrastructure! business structure!) that preceded their premier.  Fractured Atlas  is their fiscal sponsor for now, but they hope to end up with a 501(c)(3) status. Interesting to read about how they are fitting themselves into the local theater scene: developing partnerships, attracting more diverse customer segments, and understanding their place in the longer history of “LGBT theater” in DC.
