Parking lot across street is free weekend evenings, but it fills up -- don't arrive last minute.

Persimmon, just around the corner on Wisconsin Avenue, is great -- not cheap, and don't rush it. We ate at 6 for 8 pm show then walked across street for coffee.

This is our second time at the theatre - both using goldstar tickets. Again, we were not disappointed. The acting was superb. The theatre is easy to get to and good parking across the side street.
