This moderate size theater is very accessible to northern suburbs of Washington, DC. Free Parking. Hearing devices. Try to accommodate those with moderate disabilities. The performances are not only revival shows but off Broadway shows too. We saw the Invisible Hand; although brutal--at least it...More

Wow, this place is very professional and classy for being a venue in the far reaches of the DC suburbs. I was surprised and delighted. Would definitely go again, but I need to put together another group of interesting women......

I have been to a number of productions at this theater, including musicals and plays. They are of consistently high quality. It may not be the Kennedy Center, but it is really well done, and there isn't a bad seat in the house. The ticket...More

The Olney Theatre puts on excellent shows. Very professionally staged and preformed. My 7 year old granddaughter and I saw Mary Poppins a few months ago and recently we saw Annie. The theatre is intimate and well maintained.

Went to several plays although for the life of me I can't remember the names of them, LOL! The seats are comfortable and you can see the players/actors easily and hear them too.

Very good production of In The Heights by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Set design was intimate and the actors really played to the parts. My first "rap" style musical. The voices were crisp and clear.

Olnet always puts on quality performances and the new space is very good. One problem is the lack of a ramp for those who have trouble with stairs.
