Nope, says Chris Henley. Those cocktail-party rumors you've been hearing about the imminent demise of the Clark Street Playhouse are just echo-chamber effect.
A little backstory: The Washington Shakespeare Company has been hearing about the precariousness of its perch at Clark Street for as long as it's been resident in the old warehouse. For that, credit Arlington County's shifting development priorities for the property. Still, it's been what, 10 years since the company staked its claim in Crystal City?
The most recent word is that the county's planning on developing another section of the property first, which'll give WSC at least a few more seasons at Clark Street--maybe five, or maybe even more, Henley guesses--and that the county board is committed to helping the company find a new home when the end does finally come. In fact, Arlington County is working on some upgrades to the warehouse's physical plant right now. (Gotta bring it up to code, apparently, now that the county officially owns it...)
