Ben and Mrs Too spent a most enjoyable day yesterday by combining a matinee performance of “South Pacific” at Olney Theater Center with an early dinner at a nearby Outback Steakhouse.
To us, “South Pacific” is like unto “A Christmas Carol”, or “Gone With the...More
For decades, I thought Olney was a dinner theatre and, on that account, avoided it. But some friends invited me to a revival of Guys and Dolls a couple of years back that wowed me, so we've come back a number of times. The productions...More
I am writing this review after attending a performance of The Crucible by Arthur Miller. I am familiar with Miller's play and the history of the Salem witch trials, but this outstanding performance brought a currency and power to the story that I had not...More
Nice theatre. Great plays for all ages. There is a historic theatre which can be warm on hot days and a nice new theatre with better climate control. The caliber of performances at this smaller playhouse is terrific. Acoustics are wonderful. We have been going...More
Thoroughly enjoyed "On The Town" last night. Very well choreographed, top notch performances. Funny. :-) The main stage theater has only good seats - large enough for big productions, yet small enough to feel close to the action.
When I entered the date of the...More
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
Don't know that I've sat in the front row there. The main stage has handicapped seats reached without going down any steps. They are on a level just about even with the stage. The seats are separate chairs. I like to sit... More
Don't know that I've sat in the front row there. The main stage has handicapped seats reached without going down any steps. They are on a level just about even with the stage. The seats are separate chairs. I like to sit there. I think it's row G. The theater is cool. Bring a wrap.
For the black box "lab" theater, you can walk in and sit right at stage level and have a good view, it's more like theater in the round, but different shows have different configurations. There are few places to sit waiting for the theater doors to open at this location. The person in charge of group sales, is the sales manager, Weldon Brown, always very helpful in choosing seats. 301 924-4485 X121. Hope this helps. Anne

Thank you for your question. Both Orchestra and Mezzanine seats in the Mainstage theatre give you a great view of the stage (the last row of the Mezzanine is only 50 feet from the stage). For your question about first row mezzanine vs center orchestra third or fourth row, I would recommend the orchestra seats for our current production of THE PRODUCERS. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
