It has only been a few weeks since Sarah Rayer moved to Dupont Circle from Philadelphia, but she is already settling into the neighborhood and into her new position at Theater J. As managing director of the performing arts organization, Rayer will oversee staff and handle all contractual aspects. She will also manage the budget of Theater J among other responsibilities. Theater J is at the D.C. Jewish Community Center, 16th and Q Streets NW.
Currently, Rayer and the team at Theater J are preparing for the organization’s benefit scheduled for Monday, February 28. The event includes Vaudeville-style entertainment, a reading of The Sunshine Boys by Neil Simon and a dessert reception. They are also hard at work on the theater’s upcoming production of The Chosen at Arena Stage, opening March 8.
