Established in 1986 as a laboratory for performing and literary artists, Dixon Place is dedicated to supporting the creative process by presenting original works of theater, dance, music, literature, puppetry and performance art at all stages of development in front of a live audience. Challenging artists and audiences, this local haven inspires and encourages artists of all stripes and callings, emphasizing the needs of women, people of color, seniors, youth and the GLBTQ community. DP serves as a safety net, upholding the artist’s experience as our foremost priority.In addition to our mainstage theater, The Lounge at Dixon Place is open to the public Monday-Thursday, 6pm to midnight; Fridays and Saturdays, 6pm - 1am. Happy Hour is nightly from 6-8pm with low beer, wine, and well drink prices and a Bartender's Choice specialty cocktail. For our theater patrons, make sure you give yourself some time for a pre-show cocktail and then hang out afterward with the artists for a nightcap (and YES: you CAN take your drink into the theater!).

It really is a laboratory.... This is a laboratory for performing and literary artists.... And just like its scientific counter-parts, most experiments are failures.... Yet it is from our failures that great discoveries are made.... Where else can you go and see something that might...More
