Kennedy Center does not assign seates. You'll get them at the box office when you arrive.

Parking at Kennedy Center is $23.00 per vehicle. Expensive. Remember where you parked. It took us 15 minutes to find our car. Note floor, section, row number.

Wonderful energy-filled performance with fabulous seats. Sadly there were way too many empty seats.

Enjoyed this show, however, I was disappointed at the number of obscure songs that were picked to showcase. The 6 singers were very good.
