Unless you are in excellent health, just go ahead and pay the $23 for parking in the Kennedy Center. Even the closest alternative at the Watergate is a long-ish walk, uphill, in the cold. If Metro is convenient for you and you are not in a rush, that, with the shuttle bus to the Kennedy Center, is the best option.

I don't mind paying for convenience so I just paid for parking at The Kennedy Center which was $20. I paid ahead online and saved $3 and had a guaranteed spot.

They only allow bottled water inside the theatre, so if you get a drink that isn't water at intermission, make sure you have time to drink it. Drinks and snacks are expensive, so if you can do without your pocketbook will be happier!

Parking is expensive, but is still the easiest way to get there.
