“Must see "The Clean House" genius work of art by Sarah Ruhl and brilliant execution by Elden Street Players!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

This theater and the play is like a pure diamond so brilliant and flawless!!! I was moved far beyong my expectations. Traveling the world for the past 15 years working as a full time artist and watching plays 2-3 times a month in NY, Paris, Saint Petersburg, Dresden and all over by world renowned actors and play writes it is so amazing to discover a new name and phenomenal production in a small setting of community theater in Herndon. This is the best that the world of art can offer and right at your finger tips. Please, come out and support your local theater and wonderful cast member and productions team. GIGANTIC THANK YOU to everyone involved!!! My experience was priceless and I will be back!!! Highly recommend to everyone!!!

“Cuting Edge for a Community Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We have been season subscribers for years. Elden Street is innovative in its offerings, and it is not afraid to take risks. The layout of the theatre is excellent--not a bad seat in the house. Parking can be cramped, but it is FREE. The ticket prices (especially for a season) are excellent.

“A cozy place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The theater is located in a warehouse in an industrial park off of Elden Street in Herndon. Seating is comfortable and for about 200, making for a closeness to the stage that escapes larger venues. We saw 'Hamlet' which is a major undertaking for larger theaters, let alone one this size. There is an opportunity for purchasing drinks and snacks at scheduled intermissions. If you like viewing plays in a cozy setting, this is the place.

“Love this Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

I had been looking for a place where I could expose my children to theater arts without paying the high prices associated with more well known theaters like Wolf Trap or the Kennedy Center. I found this theater, located less than 5 miles from my home in an Industrial Park. The tickets are less than it costs to go to the movies. The shows are "community theater" quality, but very entertaining for the price you paid. We've been to several childrens productions, and my children have loved them all.
