Dress warmly! The seats were decent, but it was COLD - almost felt like the a/c was on. Some people were wearing their coats!

The weather was cold. I wore my coat. Don't check your coat. They had the AC on (this is in Feb)..

Cheapest parking garage is on 12th -- Columbia Square -- and you can walk out of the office building on 13th, right around the corner from the National Theatre...

A reasonably-priced meal can be found nearby at Old Ebbitt Grill. Make a reservation as the restaurant can be very crowded.

This was far more artistic and subtle and quiet [!] than I was expecting -- all in the good sense. Sort of a cross between the Harlem Globetrotters and Peter Schickele.
