Turning up the Heat for New Voices
The Boiler Room Series at Keegan, named after the old boiler room of the pre-renovation Keegan Theatre, is a bold programming initiative that focuses on the development of new works and the producing of unique performances.
The name speaks to the two-part mission: crank up the artistic heat on new works in progress and let loose the creative voices of tomorrow’s theatre.
Since its founding, Keegan has always been a supporter and producer of new works. In addition to fully producing 17 World Premieres, Keegan has workshopped many new works and played a critical developmental role in dozens of others. The Boiler Room Series amplifies those efforts by actively seeking artists and projects in international, national, and local searches for new plays and musicals.
And when it comes to producing innovative and bold theatre – Keegan is no stranger. By offering support and a stage for unique performances and performers, Keegan’s Boiler Rooms Series promotes the creative edge that’s driving theatre in DC and beyond to new and unexpected places.
