"I just wanted to take a minute to thank the teaching artists for their excellent first week of online camp! My boys really enjoyed it! I was able to witness some of the activities and marveled at the staff’s ability to keep things interesting and active for the kids. I also very much appreciated their obvious desire to give everyone equal air time, their focus on kindness, and the highlight of Juneteenth!"
  -Tanya, parent

"Round House has become such an important community for Olivia and our family, and I continue to be impressed by how quickly and thoughtfully you all were able to pivot and adapt class offerings under this new platform. The sense of community that Round House's teaching artists cultivate-even from afar-is so very appreciated, and I know having that continuity was a huge comfort for Olivia during these unusual times."
  -Chelsea H., parent

"At a time when arts organizations are suffering along with so many other areas of our society, Round House Theatre in Bethesda has done a great job providing virtual content, and I'm so glad that my daughter was able to be a part of this programming! With reports this week of the Shakespeare Globe Theatre in London and others not expecting to be able to keep their doors open once the pandemic subsides, I hope you'll support however you can."
  -Elizabeth F., parent

"Thanks for all the new content! The boys have really been enjoying the Round House videos!"
   -Tanya P., parent
"Round House Theatre presents thoughtful high quality entertainment and is stepping up to provide it in a new way during the pandemic. Kudos to their devotion to theater art and to their determination to continue making it available!"
   -Mona S., via Facebook

"A standing ovation for Round House's innovative Playwrights on Plays series. Last week's first installment was excellent; looking forward to all the future scheduled discussions."
  -Round House subscriber

"Thanks for the wonderful news about Round House's plans for digital programming! It's a great initiative and very much appreciated by students and parents."
  -Anne M., parent

“Ingenuity at work!”
  -City of Takoma Park 

“What a powerful piece. Thank you for creating art to help us navigate this moment and learn more about how to live compassionately.”
  -Caryn M. on Homebound

“My kids have been SO excited about these challenges. THANK YOU!!!!”
  -Rachael S. on Theatre Education Challenges

“Thank you for bringing this delightful play to us…This is such a fun idea and I appreciate your courage and creativity.”
  -Kristen C. on Homebound

“Congrats…an engaging and enlightening discussion!”
  -Ron S. on Playwrights on Plays

"We've really enjoyed Homebound and it is wonderful to see the respect that RHT has earned by its response to the pandemic with such an original and innovative idea, which also employs so many theatre artists!"
  -Susan G., Round House patron

“I feel fortunate to have the ability to see the show and hear the discussions while I am currently 2,000 miles away. I would never have had this opportunity to be "close to you." Watching the show and the two discussions continues to make me very proud of the work that RHT continues to do. Keep up the creativity!”
  -Elissa O., on Homebound

"Would anyone believe me if I said one of the most powerful theatre performances I've seen in the past decade was over zoom?" 
  -Mike M., on American Dreams



"The varied format is bracing, as is the interactivity...a vigorous live-streamed interactive play that ponders and satirizes America’s naturalization policies."
  -The Washington Post on American Dreams

"This interactive satire imagines that three candidates vie for American citizenship in a flashy game show...part quiz, part popularity contest...One can only encourage such collaboration at a time of existential crisis for the theater." 
  -The New York Times on American Dreams

"The adaptations to the pandemic are excellent - the show leaned into the Zoom format, and it worked."
  -Broadway World on American Dreams

“Round House is trying to respond to this destabilizing moment with immediacy and artistry, using the tools it has to maintain a connection with its audience.”
  -The New York Times on Homebound

“Many regional theaters have moved to the digital realm while their stages are dark, but Homebound is unique because it involves multiple writers spinning an evolving tale.” 
  -The Washington Post
