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).

I don't know how this show won a Tony award. It was terrible. The production was amazing, the staging was innovative and the puppetry was very cool. But after about 10 minutes, a play really needs a story and dialogue to carry it, which was sadly...continued

The level of creativity and invention was outstanding. The acting excellent. The acoustics were perfect. Having seen the movie, I had been somewhat apprehensive about liking this production, especially since I'd heard so many rave reviews about...continued
