Grateful for the shuttle! No driving, no parking.
I wore elegant cloths! it was New Years at the Kennedy Center, so we stayed after the show for the count down..
I wore slacks and a jacket for the matinee. Very informal..
Park near GWU Hospital and catch the free shuttle at the GWU metro stop
Debbie Allen's Freeze Frame
Parking at the Kennedy Center is disrupted by new construction. The former entry is closed, and the former exits now provide the only entrances as well.
Two hours without intermission.
Pre-theater casual dinner at Campono was great! Quick, inexpensive, delicious food.
Parking at the watergate is $13 vs $25 at Kennedy center
Park next door to Kennedy Center for just $12 or $13 - two parking garages available.
Parking is $23. Park around GW and take the shuttle if you can.
If going at night, park in the Watergate for half the price of the Kennedy Center. Or take the Metro to Foggy Bottom and get the free red bus to the Kennedy Center just at the top of the stairs of the Metro.
Seats in Eisenhower theater crampt in balcony but you can see well as properly elevated between rows.
Kennedy Center does not assign seates. You'll get them at the box office when you arrive.
Parking at Kennedy Center is $23.00 per vehicle. Expensive. Remember where you parked. It took us 15 minutes to find our car. Note floor, section, row number.
The weather was 65. I wore Dress.
We parked in underground parking at hotel next door for $13 instead of more than $20. From downtown office, Metro and free shuttle from Foggy Bottom is easy.
The weather was nice.. I wore business casual as did my friend. We wandered outside on the patio during the intermission; views of river incredible as always. If temps are to be low, bring a sweater or jacket so as not to miss this..
Get there at 7 and buy a whiskey at the bar on the stage then hang out with the actors from the show.
The balcony rows in the Eisenhower are extremely narrow and leave very little leg room - tall people, beware!
parking cheaper at the Watergate than at the KC
