If you are planning to order a 2nd drink/snack during intermission, pre-order them the first time so you can skip the long lines.

We paid for advance parking through Panda Parking website. We just drove in the selected garage around the corner - no discussion on where to park- it was all set up for us.

Ate at Hill country BBQ. Recommend reservations- but inexpensive and fun atmosphere. Lean brisket was excellent. Great staff- a lot of fun and great food!

If you want to eat before the show, we highly recommend Boss Shepherd's across the street. They have a pre- or post-theatre menu, very reasonably priced, and the food is delicious.

I live in Arlington, so I parked at the all-night Ballston Mall Arlington lot for $6.00 and rode the metro to Metro Center. National Theatre is just a few blocks away, so everything was easy. I stopped at the 23-hour Harris Teeters in Arlington for a fresh salad on my way home. Fun night!

Parking in nearby garages is expensive during the week ($20 ave), more reasonable onthe weekend ($10 ave). Walking from the metro (metro station stop, 13th street exit) is pleasant in good weather.
