KENNEDY CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS VENUE INFORMATION

Built in 1971 to realize the late President Kennedy's ambitions to bring culture to the American public, the Center has seen over 300 productions across ballet, theater and concerts created and stage at the complex. December 2014 saw the start of an ambitious expansion project that would reopen access from the Center to the Potomac River, as well as easier access to lower Georgetown and provide more space for visitors and performers to engage with.

Eifman Ballet Of St. Petersburg: Rodin

Eisenhower Theater

May 29-31, 2015

Premiering in St. Petersburg in 2011, Boris Eifman's remarkably talented ballet company won great acclaim for 'Rodin', a passionate and evocative portrait of the great French sculptor's torrid love affair with his muse and fellow artist Camille Claudel. Portrayed with furious emotion and profundity, this electric work explores the nature of this tumultuous relationship, through themes of love, art and insanity.

The Book of Mormon

With NINE Tony Awards - including Best Musical - a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, and top New York critic Ben Brantley himself calling it the "best new musical of the century", this is one show you won't want to miss when it comes to a stage near you. Yes, that's right - you no longer have to fly to Broadway to catch this worldwide phenomenon, the boys are bringing it to you!

Kinky Boots

Kennedy Center Opera House

June 14-July 10, 2016

Kinky Boots is one of Broadway's most successful new musicals, snapping up six 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical! The uplifting show tells the tale of a failing family-run shoe factory in England whose business trajectory is changed (and saved!) thanks to the influence of a stiletto-wearing drag queen named Lola.

Phantom Of The Opera

Kennedy Center Opera House

July 13-August 20, 2016

Andrew Lloyd Webber's romantic musical is based on Gaston Leroux's gothic novel of life beneath the stage. A secretive opera composer stalks the halls of the Paris Opera House and becomes obsessed with young ingenue Christine, and will stop at nothing to have her. This longstanding Eighties rock opera has received a full-scale update for new audiences without compromising on the glory of the original production.
