Best Of…

Posted on April 19, 2012


All of us here at Mixed Blood are extremely honored and excited about being named ‘Best Theater’ in City Pages ‘Best Of‘ issue! It’s been a fun year here at the firehouse, from the Bad Idea Bears of Avenue Q to our introduction of Radical Hospitality, and  our Center of the Margins festival, and the world premiere of On the Spectrum. We are all looking forward to another great season at the firehouse.

Check out some of our staff reactions to being mentioned in the ‘Best Of’ issue: (excuse us while we toot our own horn!)

“I love it that Mixed Blood has been recognized in this way. I have many, many favorite moments from 2011, and love the journey that I personally got to go on, being a part of such a diverse and interesting year. I think we all need a little Avenue Q in our lives, all the time.”

Beth Richardson, Marketing and Communications Director

“I’m incredibly proud to work for an organization that makes professional, high quality art accessible to everyone, and so glad to see the community is recognizing what we’re doing!”

Amanda Jacobson, Audience Services Manager

“I am honored to be a part of this company. When looking for a new theatre home, I was VERY afraid to travel the 1,000+ from a theatre community I had really come to love in DC but Mixed Blood quickly became home. It’s inspiring to be around so many talented and passionate artists, administrators, volunteers, and supporters who believe in the work we do and try to carry out that work at it’s highest standard of excellence.”

Jamil Jude, Producer in Residence/House Manager

“It’s so great to be involved with an organization that’s not afraid to take risks and push boundaries. I’m so glad Mixed Blood is being recognized by the community! Can’t wait to see what’s planned next!”

Taylor Kippels, Social Media Intern
