We're season ticket holders at NextStop Theatre and we just love it. The theatre is conveniently located close to our home, Parking is free and the productions are great! The seating is first come, first served but with only a handful of rows, there are no bad seats.

Each production begins with a cast member encouraging audience members to introduce themselves to the person next to them. It really brings a sense of community to the theater as a whole.

Our first visit to this theater (saw Amour) and we were impressed. Highly talented actors, orchestra, lighting, choreography. Why go all the way to DC to see a show when there is such talent here locally. Friendly, social fellow patrons. Beer and wine is available to bring into the show too.

Amour, an energetic musical love story at the NextStop Theatre, was adapted from the 1943 short story Le Passe-Muraille by Marcel Aymé. The music by Michel Legrand, French film composer, is melodic, and the libretto by Didier van Cauwelaert is very clever. Scenic Designer Jack Golden and his carpenters and painters construct remarkable sturdy sets in their small venue. In this case, there were seven shops with doors and a balcony depicting the 18th arrondissement (Montmarte) in Paris. Each door is colorful, with hand-painted signs above, and some brilliant enhancements that further the plot. The actors have their work cut out for them: zany characters, lots of emotion, dancing, and the entire show is sung from beginning to end (think The Umbrellas of Cherbourg on steroids). The actors’ characters require a range of feelings from one moment to the next, and the physical comedy was rife. Rich Khatcheressian as the main character Dusoleil was amazing, and Teresa Danskey as Isabelle gave a strong, lovely, and heartfelt performance. Molly Hicks Larson has an extraordinary sense of movement, voice, and comedy. Director Gloria DuGan kept the pace brisk while Jeannie Torres contributed lively choreography making every actor shine. The orchestra, as always, was excellent. Next Stop is a small venue, and my sole criticism is that at times the microphones could have been a little softer, as these performers can belt out a tune. Amour is jewel of a show. Don’t miss the hilarity that ensues when boy yearns for girl and girl pines for boy, and all of us cheer for our unlikely hero.
