On Tuesday, February 26, 2013, the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) will host a facilitated discussion on the future of the Lincoln Theatre. This discussion will include a public feedback session which will help drive the process of selecting an operator to manage the theatre.
In December 2012, the DC Department of General Services (DGS) released a Request for Letters of Intent (RFLOI) for an operator to occupy and operate the historic U Street theatre. Applicants were asked to submit their proposed use, lease terms, rental terms, business model and vision for the theatre. The new operator will lease the theatre from the city, but will have control over programming, marketing and management.
