Alden Theatre, McLean

#5 of 8 in Nightlife in Fairfax County
Theater · Concert / Show
Located in the McLean Community Center just inside the Beltway and minutes from I66 and the GW Parkway, the Alden offers a full season of performances by touring artists in our gorgeous, 383-seat venue. You'll see the same acts that come to DC's 1,000+ capacity theatres but with the experience of having them in your living room. From rock to comedy, modern dance to film, puppetry to bluegrass - and even drag queen ballerinas - the Alden is an ideal venue for nearly every genre of performing arts.

The Alden also presents outdoor concert series, and our educational opportunities include workshops with performing artists, classes and talk-backs with experts.
