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 ?

Barely funny and very, very anti-gay. Nero is played as a lisping queen and the word fa___et is uesed. Don't bother.

I agree with the other reviewers. Overall the performances were okay - and did appreciate the staging - but in the end it's just a weak script.

This was terrible. It is not even near the quality one expects from Arena Stage. Enormously disappointing.

Quotes & Highlights

“Amy Freed gives zaniness a good name … a silly-savvy lark … a provocative bowl of goofy … The delightfully snide Danny Scheie purrs, simpers, fumes and camps it up grandly.” -–_Washington Post _
“If you love broad comedy, there’s a lot of it in You, Nero. Amy Freed captures all of that weird excess and contradiction in her comedy _You, Nero … matched perfectly  by Scheie’s giddy characterization.” -–"Washington Examiner _":


This show is recommended for audiences ages 18 and up due to the mature content.
