The National Theater, the oldest continuously operating theater in Washington, Friday, May 31, 2013. The theater, once a regular stop for top performers and shows, is getting a fresh start after struggling for years. A new season of Broadway shows announced this week at the National Theatre includes its first world premiere of a new musical bound for Broadway in two decades with “If/Then” starring Idina Menzel. The season also includes the return of “West Side Story,” which got its start at the National in the 1950s and the Washington premiere of “American Idiot” from the music group Green Day.
