My husband and I enjoy attending the Arlington Friends of the drama productions, which although not Broadway calibre are always entertaining and professional. My only reason for not giving them 5 stars is that the seats are a little uncomfortable. The productions are well worth...More

I thoroughly enjoyed the performance and the entire cast did a great job. It was an excellent show and I loved the music and story by Peter Allen.

Saw "Legally Blond" last year and "Avenue Q" this year - both excellent productions and tickets are a great value. Theater is small and intimate. Space is a little old, but not uncomfortable.

This theatre group owns it's own theatre, which is a renovated church. Very quaint, air conditioned, comfortable, not a bad seat in theatre. Very talented people work on these shows and have won many awards. Check it out!

This is a neighborhood treasure that sometimes delivers great performances, and other times misses the mark. If you can be a good sport, it's well worth taking a chance--some of the performances have been amazing, and it's a lovely intimate setting for seeing a play...More
