Avoid the stress of renting a car and navigating on your own on this bus tour of Washington DC. A guide provides entertaining historical context, as you pass more than 50 of the city’s iconic landmarks, including the White House, Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, and National Mall. Unlike most city bus tours, a small group size ensures you have the guide's full attention for questions and comments.

Went to see the play/musical Peter Pan and Wendy at the Shakespeare Theatre Company/Sidney Harmann Hall. Performance was outstanding and funny. Accommodations were wonderful. Play area for kids as well while waiting for performance. Truly enjoyed by all.

Have been season subscribers for 23 years! Shakespeare plays, musicals, Broadway adaptions, something for everyone! Two small theaters, The Lansburg and the Harmon, situated a block apart, and there is not a bad seat in the house. It is not unusual for well-known stars to appear, such as Stacy Keach, Helen Mirrin, Harry Hamlin - and the Shakespear Theater Company regulars are also class acts, consistently winning Helen Hayes awards! The sets and costuming are wonderful, and when there is a musical being performed, there is a small orchestra in the Pit. We have never seen a bad peformance and eagerly await each new season!

This is still going on, so if you want to go and don’t have tickets, just show up. I walked right in and there were plenty of seats. I sat in the fourth row for the best production of Hamlet I have ever seen.

My introduction to this theater company was the annual “Shakespeare Free for All” that provides free full-length performances for two weeks each year for the greater DC community. I started by bringing my 8yo to see “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” and he loved it so much - showing that kids can enjoy Shakespeare even as a young age. We have gone to the Free for All every year since, and became season ticket holders somewhere along the way. The productions are first-rate, relevant and accessible; the staging is so creative. There are a lot of good community programs that enhance each production, such as book clubs, behind-the-scenes tours, and happy hours, so it’s a good way to meet other Shakespeare fans. Thanks, STC, for many happy family memories!

I recently attended a performance of Richard III and went back to the STC for the first time in over a decade. The facility is still nice and the ushers help everyone get to their seats quickly. There are long lines for the restrooms and drinks/snacks during intermission so I suggest getting there early for these. Parking is also quite expensive in this part of town-- figure on an average of $20 on the weekends. If there's a performance at the large venue across the street it could be hard to get too. The seating is comfortable and the view of the stage is good from lots of different vantage points. Richard III is a grim play, but the staging of this recent show drives this home. The hard rock/metal music between acts wasn't my favorite either. In general the acting was great. The only weak point was the actress playing Henry Tudor (Henry VII)-- she just was not on par with the rest of the great cast.
