Parking in nearby garages is expensive during the week ($20 ave), more reasonable onthe weekend ($10 ave). Walking from the metro (metro station stop, 13th street exit) is pleasant in good weather.

We parked across the street in the Ronald Reagan building, having prepaid using Parking Panda. It was a good choice - easy in and out. The parking garage adjacent to the National Theatre (across the street from the Warner Theater) had quite a backup of cars trying to enter both over an hour prior to and closer to the start of the show. We were glad we didn't go with that option!
