5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

Whether your thing is concerts or theater, you can't go wrong here. If you get there around 6:15PM you might even find street parking.

“A Cultural Mecca for the Arts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

This is a large, rectangular museum and cultural arts center, well visible in Washington D.C., and with many artistic and historical offerings. I have visited many times as a child, seeing programs and performances, and as an adult realize the historical importance of it and of the significant role that JFK played in it.

I went to see a one man play there (K2) and it was wonderful. I'd like to go back there. It is a wonderful venue.
