Don't count on getting a taxi cab afterwards. They were giving priority pick-up to Uber & private cars. I would recommend the Foggy Bottom shuttle & taking the Metro if you can.

Avoid the garage at the KenCen at all costs: a rip-off. At the very least, park at the garage next door for $12. If you can't take the Metro to GW (and then the free shuttle to the KenCen), you can try parking on the street NEAR the Metro and then jumping on the bus. And then you can get a bite to eat before (or after).

This was my first time seeing Evita and it was everything I had hoped and more. The singing was wonderful. Everyone did a fantastic job.

Also, thank you Goldstar, we had great seats.

This production did not seem as powerful as those I've seen before. Perhaps the vocals just needed more volume on the mics, but I wasn't dazzled by this Evita. We had left side balcony seats and they were VERY cramped.

Good talent and some great innovations but I really missed the sarcastic/undermining edge that Che is supposed to have. His role seemed to have been cut back.
