Large parking lot within steps of the theater.
Parking lot across street is free weekend evenings, but it fills up -- don't arrive last minute.
Persimmon, just around the corner on Wisconsin Avenue, is great -- not cheap, and don't rush it. We ate at 6 for 8 pm show then walked across street for coffee.
Dinner across the street at Persimmon was a great way to start the evening before going to the Writers Center performance.
Easy/free parking at lot across Walsh street -- but previous time, lot was full. This time we parked early and had tasty dinner around the corner at Persimmon.
Had a lovely dinner at the nearby restaurant/bistro "The Persimmon" - got lucky to get the bar seats - make a reservation to be sure you have your seats! The food and ambience are great!
Metered parking on Fri night till 10pm. Free Sat and Sun. Walking dist. to Bethesda metro. General admission, so arrive early.
The Iceman Cometh
Unreserved seating. Arrive early to sit close to stage. Leg room is tight.
The play is 3 hours, and the chairs aren't too comfortable (no arms). The day I went, the theater was about 100 degrees inside (although it was cold outside), and I had to remove my sweater so that I could stand it.
Somewhat difficult. We had to park five minutes away at bethesda town center.
