  • "ONCE" at the Olney Theater opened last evening and was absolutely awesome from beginning to end. The actors were dynamic and so very talented. 12 artists who could play multiple instruments as well as sing, dance and carry out a FANTASTIC play. I saw this play at the Hippodrome Theater and it was very good, however the Olney offers such intimacy in its theater. The ability to truly see and hear everything. I enjoyed it so much I plan to go back again. Make the time to go and enjoy this gift of a show. A shout out to all the gifted Crew on the stage and behind the scenes. Thanks to the management team at the Olney, you keep getting better and better.
  • Great theater in the suburbs that draws extraordinary talent. The latest production, "Once" had a range of performers who were beyond talented, each were skilled at multiple instruments, and sang, and acted. The staging was perfect. A truly remarkable production. We're lucky to have theater like this so accessible.
