ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT: David Muse '96, '03 Drama


David Muse is a well-known figure on the Washington theatre scene, previously as Associate Artistic Director for the Shakespeare Theatre Company and now as the Artistic Director of the Studio Theatre. He has directed numerous productions at Studio, including this season’s critically acclaimed Tribes, one of the Yale Club’s Theater Thursdays events.


David has helped to develop new works at numerous theatres including New York Theatre Workshop, Ford’s Theatre, Arena Stage, Geva Theatre, and the Kennedy Center.  He has also taught acting and directing at Georgetown University, Yale University, and the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Academy for Classical Acting.  A five-time Helen Hayes nominee for Outstanding Direction, he was a recent recipient of the DC Mayor’s Arts Award for Outstanding Emerging Artist and the National Theatre Conference Emerging Artist Award.


David credits his time at Yale with opening his eyes to a new world in every sense of the word.


“I went to Yale twice – first for undergrad and then for Drama School. Both times my transition was dramatic. First from a small high school in a small town in Missouri to an elite East Coast university – a new world for me, academically and culturally. Next as a budding part-time theatre artist with little experience directing professionally to a renowned MFA program attached to a leading regional theatre. In both cases, I had a LOT to learn. And not to take anything away from the incredible quality of the classroom instruction I received, but in both cases it was the student body who most inspired me and from whom I learned the most.”



Founded in 1874, the goals of the Yale Club of Washington, D.C. are: 

  • To promote the welfare and influence of Yale University, and its tradition of service in private and governmental spheres of activity.

  • To bring a knowledge of Yale to potential college students in the greater Washington area, assist the University in selecting those to be admitted from the area, and to assist students by providing a financial scholarship program. 
  • To provide Yale alumni in the Washington metropolitan area with a variety of programs and with opportunities to meet together to reconnect and support the Club.
