Unless you are in excellent health, just go ahead and pay the $23 for parking in the Kennedy Center. Even the closest alternative at the Watergate is a long-ish walk, uphill, in the cold. If Metro is convenient for you and you are not in a rush, that, with the shuttle bus to the Kennedy Center, is the best option.

I don't mind paying for convenience so I just paid for parking at The Kennedy Center which was $20. I paid ahead online and saved $3 and had a guaranteed spot.

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.
