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 ?

The show is performed "in the round" with the band in the center of the stage area and the actors walking and dancing around the stage. Our tickets from Goldstar.com placed us in the first row. So, we were often within a foot or two of the action.star this tip starred
or, add your own... The theater is about a block from the Waterfront Metro Station. Unless you have a need to drive after the show, Metro is the best way to get there.star this tip starred
