“Jim Van Slyke's Neil Sedaka review Incredible!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

They changed there name from Elden street since they became a professional theatre org. "Next something? Industrial Strength Theatre.It is a small 100 seat theatre tucked away in a strip mall in Herndon. Jim's show was the finale of their inaugural summer season. This guy is super talented and sounded very much like Niel Sedaka. Checkout "you tube". Jim has a continued professional relationship with Sedaka. The theatre was a very pleasant experience. They had a small refreshment area and adequate bathrooms for the sell out crowd. The seats were very comfortable and set up such that no one's view was blocked. This included about 6 small tables which were located on the side of the stage. The stage is a bit flimsy in construction with several boards slightly detached from the main support beams. I was a little concerned Jim would trip over one of the boards as he moved across the small stage. Great show in an intimate environment.

“Attended cabaret show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Great performances in a small venue. I like that the rows of seats are tiered because I am petite and a 6-footer with a hat usually sits right in front of me. Comfortable seats too.

“Just the right size for a up close experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

We saw Last Hamm Standing a comedy group, but they also have plays and other events. I suggest buying tickets in advance, as this show was sold out and I am sure most do. The theater is small and this gives you the best up close experience you can get. The seats were comfortable and refreshments are sold. Only two bathrooms, so there was quiet a line during intermission and the lobby area is not very big, so it was crowded. Also, it is in the back of a shopping strip and our gps kept taking us passed it. Nice, cheap entertainment. GO

“Simply Good Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Went with friends and small children to see Robin Hood - great interactive fun, kids encouraged to get involved with the 'players' and scenes.

Small theater, so book tickets (online) or get their early.

Definitely recommend
