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.

Fun event. Long though (nearly 3hrs), but very well organized. I'll definitely be attending again next year.

In March of 2011, while most sports fans began to bracket and follow their favorite college basketball team, the DC theatre community was treated to the mayhem of its first ever theatre tournament, spawn from the mind of  DC actor/producer/athlete Edward Daniels.

Monologue Madness, the showdown that it is, returns in 2012!  Modeled after the NCAA’s March Madness Basketball Tournament, Monologue Madness is a competition featuring some of the region’s most well-known and unknown actors. These eager thespians battle head-to-head with their best audition monologues, in hopes of winning a $1000 grand prize, in addition to a slew of other career-enhancing prizes.
