Studio Theatre’s 2011 Fall Benefit Is Tuesday, October 11. The evening begins at 6 pm with a pre-show cocktail reception and dinner at Logan Circle’s Commissary restaurant. Following dinner, guests will walk to The Studio Theatre for a special performance of Alan Bennett’s The Habit of Art, followed by a dessert reception with the actors and director.


The Habit of Art is a clever and moving exploration of creativity, desire, and the tenacity of the artistic spirit from the author of The History Boys. In the depths of London’s National Theatre, actors are working on a new play about two artists late in their careers, a play about a meeting between the composer Benjamin Britten and his former collaborator, poet W. H. Auden, after a 25-year break in their friendship. David Muse, The Studio Theatre’s Artistic Director, will direct The Habit of Art, described by The Daily Telegraph as “funny, moving, a whirligig of ideas.” Tickets to the Fall Benefit are $250 each. If you would like to be a part of this exciting event, please contact Helen Aberger at (202) 232-7267, or haberger@studiotheatre.org, who will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Studio looks forward to celebrating the launch of the 2011-2012 season with you!
