"Free Kennedy Center Performances" Kennedy Performing Arts Center Tip by mattreider
Kennedy Performing Arts Center, Washington D.C.: 12 reviews and 18 photos
As part of its effort to involve the community in theater and the arts, the Kennedy Center has a free performance every day at 6pm. My wife and I would randomly meet after work at the center to appreciate its grand halls and its outdoor terrace. It's more fun if you have no idea what to expect, the range of performers and performances is amazing.
More common to the theater district is The Washington Ballet, the National Symphony Orchestra, various military and big bands, and the occasional awards show, TV program, or visiting performers.
Make sure to go early enough to wander around the building, and take a photo with Kennedy's head. Well, okay, it's a large statue of Kennedy's head. You can't miss it.
A great example of clean modernism, the building is beautiful despite the almost constant construction that surrounds it.
For daily tickets to various cultural events in D.C., I recommend ticketplace, at 407 Seventh Street, NW (http://www.cultural-alliance.org/tickets/today.html)
Address: 2700 F Street, NW
Directions: The Foggy Bottom/George Washington Univ. Station is the closest stop. From there it is a short walk via New Hampshire Avenue OR use the FREE Kennedy Center Shuttle (signs are towards the left as you exit the escalator).
