Recommend making a garage reservation using ahead of arriving for the show. Lots of reasonably priced garage spots in the area.

Outstanding performance by a wonderful cast of energetic, talented performers. Colorful costumes with multiple changes. The show started at 8 PM and was over at 10:45 pm. There was a 20 min intermission.

Great program. Loved every minute. It was energetic, fully of rhythm and constantly moved. It was money well spent. Recommend very highly.

About the Ticket Supplier: Warner Theatre

The Warner’s special place in the history of Washington began in the 1920s when dozens of grand theaters and moviehouses lit up downtown. Built first for vaudeville and silent movies, the Theatre was opened as the Earle Theatre in 1924.

The Earle switched to a movies-only policy in 1945 and in 1947, owner Harry Warner, one of the Hollywood’s Warner Brothers, visited Washington and told his tour guide Julian Brylawski (one of the original builders) that since he owned the theatre, his name should be on the marquee. Thus the Earle Theatre became the Warner Theatre.
