Parking: disastrous! We drove around for 20+ minutes and missed the beginning of the show. The residential zoned parking down there is in effect 7 days a week, from 8 am to midnight, making on-street parking impossible for a show. Even metered -- except for a few spots on Maine Avenue. We finally made it through the endless automated voice prompts on Arena Stage's phone line to reach a person to ask where to park. "1101 N Street has a parking garage. Not really -- it's monthly parking only. But across the street, at the 1100 building, if you go down an alley and around to the back of the building (very poor signage), there is an entrance into the garage for the public. $12 on the weekends. Really?!! In SW DC ?

A period piece, some excellent acting (Nancy Robinette as Essie and Rick Foucheux as Nat Miller); good performances by Fried (Sid) and Schraf (Lily). Disappointing: William Riley (Richard). Perhaps a directing issue; too bad. Nice sets, audio...continued

I generally enjoyed the production, although the performances are a bit uneven at this early stage in the run. Sets, costumes, lighting and other production elements are quite good; however, the setting and staging for the bar scene is very...continued
