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).

A truly wonderful performance -- excellent singing, acting and dancing, both by the leads and the ensembles, fabulous sets. I would take the Opera House Orchestra's volume down a notch, however (or up the volume of the singers' mics a notch). Most...continued

The classic holiday movie White Christmas comes to the stage at last! This North American tour shines with classic Berlin hits like “Blue Skies,” “How Deep is the Ocean?” and, of course, the unforgettable title song.
