Parking: disastrous! We drove around for 20+ minutes and missed the beginning of the show. The residential zoned parking down there is in effect 7 days a week, from 8 am to midnight, making on-street parking impossible for a show. Even metered -- except for a few spots on Maine Avenue. We finally made it through the endless automated voice prompts on Arena Stage's phone line to reach a person to ask where to park. "1101 N Street has a parking garage. Not really -- it's monthly parking only. But across the street, at the 1100 building, if you go down an alley and around to the back of the building (very poor signage), there is an entrance into the garage for the public. $12 on the weekends. Really?!! In SW DC ?
Oliver!

Powerful yet at times funny. As always at Arena Stage much dialogue is lost when a character is facing away from you. It's quite evident when 3/4 of the audience laughs and the other 1/4 remains silent. Staging as always is very imaginative....continued

The show has heart. The new American English translation is great. It remains an agitprop piece, but it is a good show with heart in this production. I saw a matinee for which the house was nearly half empty. I couldn't help but sense that at...continued
