“Fun Performance!”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

I had really wanted to see Shakespeare, but the Harry Potter spoof was a lot of fun and the facilities are very good. You can walk from the National Mall if you wish.

“A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, is FUNNY”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

They have jazzed up the show and made old time "slap Stick" humor relevant--actually, the show delivers frequent belly laughs. It is a bit expensive, but this is one of the best productions the Theatre has done in the last few years.

“Top-notch theater in downtown DC”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

We have attended a variety of productions at this theater over the past few years. There is not a bad seat in the house - the space is intimate but attractive. Each production offers an innovative twist, from "Merchant of Venice" set in old-time New York, to "Measure for Measure" in 1930s Vienna. Casting, sets, and production quality are all uniformly excellent. The location is also terrific, very close to a Metro station and many terrific restaurants.

“Set was spectacular”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We were in D.C., so decided to take in a show. Saw Measure for Measure, which was not my favorite Shakespeare play, but the actors and set designers outdid themselves. Enjoyed the experience.

“So Great!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I love this venue! Shows are not JUST Shakespeare, so if you are not a fan of his work, you can still catch another show. The atmosphere is great.
