If you want to eat at Jaleo make a reservation and don’t be more than 15 mins late
Use an online App to book a discounted parking slot in advance. Street parking is available in front of the Court of Appeals but is expensive
If you take Metro to Gallery Place, use the exit for the Arena and you will arrive at 7th & F, half a block from theatre.
We ate at Zaytinya on 9th and F street around the block from Sidney Harmon Hall and it was excellent and the service was prompt.
If time is tight, our favorite pre-show spot is the bar at Jaleo--drinks, bread with olive oil, three tapas, and on our way in less than 40 minutes!
Metro was miserable with a 20 minute delay enroute and on the return trip as well, with standing room only all the way home. And Metro's not cheap. A drag to have to go to DC for this type of thing. Prefer theatre in Maryland, but we have no Shakespearian venues.
The weather was ok. I wore layers including a trench coat. Theater was freezing cold so the coat was perfect. The stadium seating was steeped wonderfully and even someone short-wasted could see over heads. Terrific theatre in that respect. Gift shop was great too. .
Many restaurants in the area. Legal Seafoods is a great choice for fish.
Metro's Gallery Place station is less than a block away. If you want to drive, the theater's web site has guidance, including a lot a few blocks away with $7 parking with tickets.
The weather was Sunny & quite warm.. I wore Slacks And a lite top..
National Theatre Live Screening: The Audience
Gallery Place Metro is right across the street. Parking around here is tough.
Goldstar says that Harmon Hall uses dynamic pricing. That means that when you buy a ticket through Goldstar, you won't know where you will end up. Don't use Goldstar for Harmon Hall unless you are willing to sit in the worst seat in the theater.
We took the metro to Gallery place and walked a block.
This area of the city has become popular enough that you can't count on being seated last minute (as we tried to do at Jaleo--an hour/45 wait!) There are plenty of pub-type places up 7th St. but all are a bit of a walk.
Turn your !@#$ cell phones off! I don't want to see it even light up.. This show is done without intermission and I don't want to be distracted a bit.
