Power 100: Molly Smith

by Editorial

Molly Smith
Artistic Director, Arena Stage

Washington is where President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by a bullet from the stage of a theater, but today the metropolitan area‘s theater scene is safer, larger and has more variety. The intimate Arena Stage, which the talented and enterprising Smith has run for a couple of decades, is typical of the impressive range of choice on offer. In the past year or so, Arena Stage has produced, or has planned, Arthur Miller’s play “The Price,” a revival of “The Pajama Game” and “Snow Child,” a new musical set in Alaska, which not so coincidentally is where Molly Smith started her theater career.
