Kennedy Center was beautiful. Starting in the hallway at the entrance with the history of JFK on the walls and back to where the Opera House is where Hamilton was playing, the experience was awesome. Definitely go upstairs to the Terrace and walk all the way around the building and take in the sites of Washington!
The Temptations were awesome. One of the original guys was in the audience. Great seats. Pleasant and helpful ushers. Enjoyed watching the planes outside come in to land at Reagan Nationsl Airport during intermission. Perfect evening.
Awesome items, great gifts but very overpriced... seems it's well healed customers will probably pay the prices anyway.
This is a wonderful place to go for any of their plethira of shows, musicals, music, or whatever else they have going on! If the playbook he "Kennedy Center" on it you know the show will be amazing. I cannot overstate, however, how bad the bathroom situation is during intermission. I got up to go to the bathroom for intermission and while I managed to barely slip into the men's room before the intermission ended my wife was not so fortunate. She had to wait until after the show. Snacks and beverages are similar to every other theater so while not exceptional they are what is needed. The gift shop is superb with not only Kennedy Center paraphernalia but also gifts directly pertaining to the show being put on that morning, evening, or night.
The Eisenhower theatre is set up so there isn't a bad seat in the house. Helpful staff. Grest a's acoustics. Be sure to check out outdoor balcony/patio.
