About Juliana Avery

Juliana is a life-long arts and culture vulture from the D.C. area. Working at Arena has been a homecoming of sorts for her. She began her theatrical career as a high school playwright in the Arena Stage Young Playwrights competition in 2002. In the ensuing decades, she has graduated from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Dramatic Writing, married an actor she met while assistant directing at the Capital Fringe Festival, and worked at Forum Theatre and Ford’s Theatre before coming back to Arena. She loves expanding the world of the theater by sharing it with others across digital and social media.
