Street parking is hard to find. But I was able to find a spot across the street from Whole Foods on P and 15th. There are 2 parking garages nearby, however, if you have an SUV, the clearance height on those garages may not be enough (6'1" - 6"3")

Excellent! Great food for thought for men & women alike. Cast was terrific. Theater J does great plays--seen more there in past few years than other similar-sized DC venue. Thought- provoking, timely, brave! Highly recommend.
