The Alden theater is a wonderful gem -- one of the highlights of McLean. The shows are professionally produced --and it provides an opportunity for local children who are aspiring actors. The tickets are reasonably priced. We have seen many plays here and have never been disappointed.

Alden has come a long way from the early days of shabby shows and theater group in-fighting: The autocratic leaders of the theater notwithstanding. For example, all sets have to fit into a ridiculously small space so they can be stuck during the run. Why bother building a set? Theater crew backstage, working for Alden, are hostile and imperial, the inside joke of the community. "What's the most dangerous thing in theater? An Alden volunteer with power." LOL. Hey, it's McLean.... and I know, I live here.
