Cat go wrong with this little theater in Herndon. Every seat is a good seat in the house and you are literally right on the stage. My ONLY complaint is parking. You have to find it on the complex, not just in front of the...More

The location is tucked away in an unlikely business park setting, but as soon as you enter the theater, you are in another world. The performances are intentionally crafted to fit the space and level of intimacy provided by a Black Box theater, but have...More

This very high energy entertaining show was fun and informative. Full of trivia facts about the presidents in a fun and inventive way.

Just saw the next stop production of Assassins. Excellent, even better than excellent! Rivals any production in DC, and is better than many in New York City. This show is a truly must see. It's playing for another couple weeks. The acting is fantastic.

I had never heard of this 114 seat theater before the Acrocats came to town. It's very small, with an even smaller lobby and bar, so you buy tickets online and just check in by name as your arrive. There are no assigned seats, so...More

We have been season ticket holders for years. We always love the shows. Widev variety of shows. Excellent actors. Sets are always amazing. Costuming is spot on. We love being close to the stage and the action. Worth the price of a ticket.

When I came to this theatre company, I was not expecting much. The show was an improv comedy show. I was blown away with how satisfied I was with this experience, though. It was a very comfy and close feeling.

This modest-sized theatre provided an excellent space for the five performers and the small musical ensemble that transported the audience with the great music of Rodgers and Hammerstein. The cast performed with delightful energy - dancing and singing with exceptional talent. We also appreciate the...More

Parking is free anywhere inside the "Sunset Business Park" where the theatre is located. With the exception of yellow-curbs, corners, and loading zones, everywhere is fair game. There is a bar with local craft beer... More
