Whoever picks the plays doesn't have my approval. I am not interested in most of the titles. The small theater is lovely. You will have a good time.

An extensive variety of plays are presented during the year at affordable costs. The Roundhouse does a great job of making theater goers feel really welcomed at each performance

My boyfriend and I attended this theater, in April 2014, to see "Two Trains Running" by playwright August Wilson. I always wanted to see an August Wilson play and was glad we finally did so. The play was very entertaining (great acting) and we had really good seats (since the theater is not too big, any seat is a good seat. Additionally, we saw "A Trip To Bountiful", back in 2010, and this was also excellent and featured a predominately African-American cast. Coincidentally, the same play was on Broadway (starring Cicely Tyson, etc.), last year, with the same adaption. Since the production, at the Bethesda Round House Theater, was excellent, I felt as though I did not need to travel to New York City to see the same play. We purchased tickets, at the box office, the day of the performance. The box office offers certains discounts, if applicable, which is really good. There is ample parking at the public garage a block away and it's free on Saturdays and Sundays (prices vary on the weekdays and this garage has metered parking only). The Metro subway also has a stop within walking distance. There are are several restaurants close by for convenience.

Mostly good to acceptable seats, small enough to hear and see the action on the stage well. Really convenient location in Bethesda near Metro and big parking garage across the street. Performances are well done and reasonably priced. Some sell out early.

We've been to more than half a dozen productions here, most recently, a comedy--"Seminar." While the performances vary from absolutely outstanding (e.g., "Amadeus"), to far better-than-average for a smaller theater in the suburbs, visually, they always amaze. The sets are always wonderfully creative, as is the staging and costumes. No seat is very far away from the stage. You can opt for the less expensive balcony seats. There are special prices for students and bargains on certain days, often Tuesdays, where you can see a play for $10 or $15. There is parking steps away--either at the public parking lot across the street (caution--Bethesda is known for ticketing expired meters) and at a parking lot just past the main entrance of the theater. If there is an intermission, there are light refreshments sold in the lobby.
