We ate in the café at the Kennedy Center. It is quite expensive. I had the ham and brie sandwich and a bag of chips= $13. I would give that sandwich a 2 out of 10. They have a hot and cold food bar for even more $$. I'm not sure that the food would have been any better on that.

Don't eat at the KC Cafe unless you have to due to timing. Think cafeteria at higher price points.

Parking at Kennedy Center is soooo expensive. Take Metro to Foggy Bottom & free shuttle to the Kennedy Center.

It just lacked originality. Boring. It was not without redeaming features --- the mother superior role was well done by an obvious musical theater professional --- but in general, there are better ways to spend an evening.

It really followed the story. The costumes were beautiful. The actors were wonderful and the main character had a wonderful voice. I would recommend it highly. We loved it!

Definitely entertaining and delightfully funny at times. The goofy, excitable nun is hilariously fun! And the "bad guys" had really amusing parts .... laughed so hard... continued
