Since the H Street playhouse opened a decade ago, the neighborhood has experienced a resurgence, becoming a hotspot for barhoppers, dance partiers, and people who like to throw back pints at German-themed Biergartens. The Playhouse is often cited as having been a catalyst for the revival.

That revival, however, is ultimately what forced them out. In 2009, after the death of her husband, Bruce, who owned the theater with her, Adele sold the building to Century Associates. Century Associates said it would raise the rent, leaving H Street in the market for a new, affordable home before the Playhouse’s lease runs out in February.

Julia Christian, managing director of the H Street playhouse, posted a video on YouTube with the announcement, in case you’d like a 5-second recap of this post.

The conference Monday will be held outside HIVE, at 2027 Martin Luther King Blvd., SE, at 2 p.m.
