Underrated Venue

The first time we went to Next Stop Theater we were wowed by the intimate venue and quality of production. We saw "Catch Me if your Can" that was absolutely wonderful.

Thanks HB. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit again. We pride ourselves on giving our community access to paid professional actors, designers, and directors-- many the same as they will see at DC's venerable theatres, but without the hassle of heading into the city. More

What a great time we had tonight! We went to opening night of Catch Me if You Can - a musical version of a very good movie & based on a true story. Set in the 1960s - the costumes were fun (especially the female ones - reminded me of my mini skirted days!) The dance & music group numbers... More

I have been an avid supporter of Next Stop Theater from when it was known as Elden Street Players. I highly recommend their extremely reasonable 'season ticket' option. I have never seen a performance that was not a 5 star in my book. The Taste of the World restaurant located in the same building is a great first stop-- then... More

The brunch/theater package is great. We enjoyed top notch food at Passion Fish in Reston and then had reserved seats for the Sunday 2pm matinee of "City of Angels". The staff at Next Stop greeted us with mimosas and great seats for a musical that is not to be missed. A small theater came alive with a memorable performance. I... More

First it was the Eldon Street Players (non-professionals) and now Next Stop Theatre (professionals). In both guises, it was/is a notch above almost all of the community theatres. This is a theatre that is not afraid to take risks. Most of the time they succeed, but even in some of the weaker play choices, the underlying quality of the overall... More

This theater has upgraded its actors and plays and it shows. A little more costly than community theater but worth the price

They pack so much into this tiny space. They had snacks, drinks, alcohol, and popcorn. The hot apple cider with bourbon was exactly what I needed to warm up after searching for the theater in the snow!! It's not easy to find. It's on the backside of the warehouse area. Best to ask someone or use Siri. The seating is... More
