    Mostly have gone here for theatre. The black boxes are great for intimate and interactive shows. Drinks are available at a small counter. Beautiful inside & good location. Parking can be annoying.

    If you can buy tickets online do so ahead of time. We arrived and the tickets for the 18mo-3yo music class were sold out. We bought them for next week but the ticket office was very slow.

    It's a GREAT venue to see new, innovative and slightly off-beat performing arts.

    Decent venue but their Scena theatre company is meh, especially in a town filled with great theatre companies.

    Parking = nightmare. Get here early. Plenty of places to eat in a one block radius. Metro wasn't viable from N. Bethesda.
