You can park at the Watergate for half the Kennedy Center cost.

Be sure and read the synopsis of the play in the program--unless you know Hungarian!

You should have made it clear that it would be in Hungarian! The translations were at the far sides of the stage and it ws hard to read and watch the action simultaneously. We left at intermission, along with LOTS of other people!

Over-elaborate plot, poor pacing (very draggy first scene),over-bright stage lighting (e.g., to represent a gypsy house without electricity), incongruous set, very wordy... continued

Slow, caotic and uninteligible as you have to spend your time reading the translation located on either side and then miss the action.
